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 more unfolding scandals to deal with later. So there.6 David Aaronovitch Jumps The Shark The Great Man took to his high horse to sneer at all those running the Whittingdale story. If only he had bothered to read the Ministerial Code of Conduct first.
5 Whittingdale Cover-Up Exposed The publication of James Cusick’s Byline Media article showed that at least four newspapers chickened out of running the story about the Culture Secretary and his relationship with a known prostitute. Including two that normally have no qualms about bothering with a public interest test.
4 Whittingdale Lied To Cameron The Culture Secretary misled the Prime Minister about the length of his relationship with a dominatrix, how he met her, and whether he knew what she did for a living.
3 Press Sex Story Hypocrisy The Sun was happy enough to think its story about a “Married Celebrity Parent” was worth plastering over its front page, but not the one about the Minister who was in charge of overseeing an overhaul of press regulation.
2 John Whittingdale And The Dominatrix Third week on the Top Six for this post. Nick Mutch’s Byline Media article began the opening of the can of worms on the Culture Secretary’s dalliance.
1 Sun Sex Story Desperation The Murdoch doggies so wanted to run the story of the “Married Celebrity Parent” and a threesome, despite their being no public interest justification other than getting revenge.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
