Some media organisations have been laying down the law about the range of subjects in which their staff may indulge when Tweeting from personal accounts, with Sky News being the latest to act. One has to wonder, in light of the latest revelation about the Daily Mail’s pointless pundit Sarah “Vain” Vine, whether Associated Newspapers will be next.As Zelo Street regulars will know, Ms Vine made a serious and highly personal allegation against Mic Wright, which he and his legal representatives agreed was defamatory. A “letter before action” was duly dispatched. There was a delay of several days. Now he has had a reply. But not the reply he and his lawyers had been expecting.excused the Sun’s repeated libelling of Elton John - behaviour which led the Murdoch tabloid to be forced to stump up a cool million notes in damages. “I think The Sun should have its million quid back. It hasn't damaged him at all, has it?” That was in 2006; some things never change.
You thought Sarah Vine was unpleasant? You ain’t seen nothing yet.
