Top Six - October 1

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 places to go and people to see later. So there.
6 Laura Kuenssberg - Canary WRONG Not only did the Canary get the BBC Political Editor’s presence on a panel at the Tory Conference wrong - they didn’t check first - the assumption that this proved she was biased depended on assuming it in the first place. Circular argument, leading readers … where have we seen that before?

5 UKIP Applauds Nazis The Kippers were all in favour of the success registered by the far right in Germany’s elections, despite the well-known views of some of the party’s members.

4 Sun Corbyn Basher PAID BRIBES The hack claiming Jezza was going to face a leadership challenge at last week’s Labour Conference had significant previous when working for the late and not at all lamented Screws.

3 Katie Hopkins School Tour BUSTED The pro-am motormouth’s attempt to get her propaganda into schools soon faced serious opposition.

2 Laura Kuenssberg Bodyguard - REALLY? Several delegates to the Labour Conference cast serious doubt on the Sun’s single sourced claim that the BBC’s political editor had had to hire the services of a bodyguard.

1 Uber - Fake Petition BUSTED How did the company get all those signatures on their petition to stay in London? As if you need to ask.

And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
