So what’s hot, and what’s not, in the past week’s blogging? Here are the six most popular posts on Zelo Street for the past seven days, counting down in reverse order, because, well, I have domestic stuff to do later. So there.6 IPSO Kavanagh Spin Unravels The appointment to the board of the so-called Independent Press Standards Organisation of Murdoch loyalist and attack dog Trevor Kavanagh generated a complaint from Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson. IPSO’s craven and dishonest reply was not their finest hour.
5 Don’t Menshn Michael White (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch went berserk with Guardian sage Michael White after he not only took the piss out of Rupe and Jerry’s nuptials, but also told readers that Murdoch was not a very nice person.
4 Sun Editor Royal Rant Busted Tony Gallagher’s defence of his paper’s “QUEEN BACKS BREXIT” story ended up doing no more than increasing the suspicion that Michael “Oiky” Gove was the Sun’s informant.
3 Michael Gove Royal Leak Rumbled After the Sun’s “QUEEN BACKS BREXIT” claim, it became clear that the exchange between Her Maj and Nick Clegg could only have happened at a meeting attended by, among others, Michael “Oiky” Gove.
2 PETITION - Stop Newton Dunn’s BBC Appointment The idea the the Sun’s non-bullying political editor Tom Newton Dunn might join Newsnight was wrong on so many levels.
1 Sun NHS Hijab Splash Busted Another day, another single-sourced Sun story, which failed to tell readers one key fact: their informant was a self-confessed Islamophobe. But he said it in Czech, so perhaps the Murdoch doggies thought nobody would find out.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
