Being a political journalist on Twitter in the Year of our Lord 2015
Who’d do it, eh?
Here’s Laura Kuenssberg reporting on Twitter about something that the Prime Minister has apparently said.
Pretty strong language from the PM, allegedly.
Although of course, we know who is really to blame for this turn of events.
Laura. She’s a disgrace who should be boycotted.
It is yet more evidence of that famous anti-left wing BBC bias.
Then again, maybe BBC reporters shouldn’t report anything unless they are also going to express an opinion on it.
In fact, perhaps she’s just on crack for reporting it at all?
