City to feature on Amazon prime doc

Discussion in 'Bluemoon forum' started by City Raider, 21 Sep 2017.

  1. It’s only the Mail reporting this ‘moaning’. Charles Sale reported almost exactly the same story a month ago, when he was ‘breaking’ the story and it I s a brilliant example of how not to write an article. “A source said, a spokesman commented, some commercial organisation will be furious.”
    Because it seems to paint Sky and or BT in a bad light, the Mail seems to have become the Washington Post as it breaks the amazon-gate story!

    Charles Sale is actually very good. He picks up a great deal of gossip and is obviously hearing a lot of whining about this.

    In his area of journalism, if he didn't use "a source said", every contact that he has would never speak to him again.

    I'm sure Sky and BT are unhappy.

    They are looking nervously at the likes of Amazon and Facebook and wondering where they will go next.

    Well done City !

    Yes, he specialises in sports gossip, so it's hit and miss inevitably, but he has enough hits to be worth paying attention to, even with the usual provisos. I do enough blog writing on cricket to know for a fact the authorities have dismissed his stuff as tittle tattle when he's actually been spot on.

    He's a muck-raker who will turn the slightest, implied criticism of someone or something into a major story. Someone will say to him "I'm not sure that's the best thing X could have said" and he'll turn that into "The world of football has turned on X after his claim. One source told me 'I think he's lost the plot completely' "

    What's especially good, is that our "series" will be part of the Prime fee.. which most people seem to have nowadays. Not hidden behind SKY paywalls like CFC/LFC and MUTV paywalls.

    Will they complain to Nivea about the awful man-care adverts Liverpool do as well?
