Jeremy Paxman Waves Goodbye To ‘Crap’ BBC: Email In Full

by | 3rd, February 2011

JEREMY Paxman is imploding before out eyes. Having used the words “cunts” to describe the coalition’s spending “cuts”, hosted a chatty Newsnight smirk-off about bankers’ wages and the trouble with the rich – his salary at the BBC: £1milion a year – Paxman has now written an email that calls Newsnight crap”.

As he notes:

“Welcome to positively the last Newsnight daily email. The time has come to put this exercise in fatuousness out of its misery. It gives me no pleasure to say that it should have happened years ago. Actually, I lie. There is more joy in heaven, etc, etc. The reason for killing it off is pretty straightforward. It’s crap.

“The daily email was dreamed up – like so many other utterly brilliant initiatives (anyone recall the Newsnight podcast, for people who preferred their television without pictures?) – by visionary senior management at the BBC.”

Maybe these civil servant can replace Paxman with a gurning face and Chris Morris, who is sadly underused in the news arena he once graced. Paxman is now beyond parody…
