After the Media Guido feed told “The person we delayed making a formal offer to because the office was closed due to Covid, was nabbed by [Fraser Nelson] and the fool has now gone to work at the [Spectator]", Nelson added “A great opportunity, especially with so few papers hiring. Harry Cole, Juliet Samuel and many more have been through the Guido Academy. It offers a brilliant start to a career in journalism”.
Master Cole made his name as an unprincipled liar while still at University. He called the Phone Hacking scandal totally wrong. He openly defamed me, thus ensuring he gets no change out of this blog. His first Sun front page was a pack of lies that fell apart almost as soon as it was published. But he is good at taking dictation.whose gaslighting of Diane Abbott (aided and abetted by mercenary hack Isabel Oakeshott) in the wake of a BBC Question Time appearance is well known. Ross Kempsell, hired because of his ability to tape others’ conversations, left for Murdoch property TalkRADIO.
And then there was Alex “Billy Liar” Wickham, whose entrapment of former Tory MP Brooks Newmark never did get explained properly, and probably never will. Wickham’s dishonesty was captured for posterity when he lied shamelessly about Andy Burnham’s campaign for Manchester Mayor - and Zelo Street caught him out.
Endorsed by Fraser Nelson
This is what Fraser Nelson is advertising as a “great opportunity” and a “brilliant start to a career in journalism”. Worse, the whole show is run by someone with a grim track record, one of far-right sympathies, illegal behaviour, and the facilitation of murder and torture.
Now you know why our free and fearless press is in such a mess. Not a good look.
