Newsnight: Jeremy Paxman slams show email in last message
Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman sent out the last of the show’s daily emails yesterday and slammed the ‘crap’ messages.
The mouthy star, 60, sent out the final bulletin to viewers, writing:
“Welcome to the last Newsnight daily email.
“The time has come to put this exercise in fatuousness out of its misery.
“The reason for killing it off is straightforward – it’s cr*p. A carrier pigeon would have been quicker.
“It was dreamed up – like so many other utterly brilliant initiatives – by visionary senior management.”
One recipient told The Sun:
“Bosses won’t be happy – it’s embarrassing to have top journalists taking the p**s.”
