But they shared an intimate moment on the fire escape :cool:

A journo who's default setting is to trust their subject (a pro cycling natch!) is not doing their job properly

But Walsh isn't just a cycling joruno. He's the MAN who singlehandidly took down Lance.

Single handidly. NO ONE else was involved. Walsh even got a movie crew to make a film about this showing very clearly that no one else was involved (just in case anyone thought Walsh wasn't alone). All Walsh, all himself. The film was going to get oscars.

So don't you dare tell walsh how he should do his job. He is the greatest journo in history.

I sense that Walsh thought The Program would be a box office smash and he’d go to make Inside Sky into a feature film as well. Funny how things turn out. Now the only cineamatic greatness we get is an out of focus enlarged shot of his webcammed forehead :cool:

Let me guess. That's what Pierre Ballester was telling you just the other day :rolleyes:

It's almost like Pierre never existed. I've never watched the drivel, but just had a look on the Rotten Tomatoes page and did a search on the cast for Pierre, and not even a mention.

I've said it before - what a loathsome individual.

'The Program' could have been so much better than it was - a real wasted opportunity. It even had Joe Mangel from Neighbours in it!

It coulda been the film Frears wanted to make - The Secret Race. The make-up for Ty's hair alone woulda won it an Oscar.

Forget which it was, Ty refused to sell the rights or was a schmuck and demanded too much.

Which is a real shame as I think the story is so much more powerful - it could focus on so many different aspects : Lance bullying, Tyler's constant stress and lying, etc.

Now he is the greatest duped journo in history which could pose a problem if he decides its time to go into full retard investigative mode.

*whether he could so so being at the pay roll of the Murdochs does create a conflict IMHO*

The Sky brand is part of the Fox deal, so think it will be even more separate from the Times / Sunday Times brands (unless I misunderstood that).

According to companies house James Murdoch is the boss of Sky PLC https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/RiR9rBCpY8EphY57LcskZxo5NoU/appointments and Rebecca Brooks (remember her) the MD of News Corp UK & Ireland https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/00081701/persons-with-significant-control *this is pretty amazing considering her brush with the law over phone hacking*

Without unravelling the nuances of various holding companies it would appear Rupert Murdoch still maintains overall control of News Corp International. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/sep/04/rebekah-brooks-rupert-murdoch-media

Is David Walsh really going to go for the jugular on Froome with the Murdochs as his bosses??

My understanding is that the Murdochs will leave the Fox group when the deal goes through. Not surprised nothing is updated at Cpy House just yet - it was only announced the other day, lots of hurdles to jump before then.

The operation will however have to be authorized by the regulatory authorities of the competition, because a merger between Fox and Disney would give birth to a gigantic company. , such a group would reshape the entire film sector.

On the receiving end of Walsh's journalistic rigour in today's ST - Rory McIlroy and Gary Neville

Number of times the Dawg is mentioned in the ST's sports section - zero

Number of letters in sports section about pro cycling - one (a corker which suggests drug test results are "random" because lean riders have suppressed immune systems)

Walsh in today's ST:

- Questions ethics of Froome asking for Giro appearance fee with AAF hanging over his head
- Questions why Cookson asked for Sky's reputation to be restored when he knew about Froome's AAF

Keep up, David! Re-hashing old news not exactly groundbreaking journalism...

Walsh also said that it was Brailsford who negotiated the Giro appearance fee, which suggests everyone knew rhe postive was going away via the normal channels.
