Where do you get your ideas from Johnnie?

Of course she was sacked on the spot, as were all the staff members. They came into the bulding, found they could not log in and were taken to a meeting and then escorted off the premises.

You are Ginny Buckley...... and I claim my five pounds!

Personally I think watching Sky's tiresome now, it had to change. Every five seconds theres a cut to adverts an outtake etc, it's all over the place. I don't think we should criticise Sky for the way in which they dismiss staff, there's no easy way in doind so after all.

Emma Crosby comes out best with Steve Dixon, although she's either trying too hard or getting a little cocky now, I think she's had a kick up the bottom either way. Eamonn Holmes let's the side down and in my opinion should have gone instead of Juliet Foster. James rubin's wasted with his knowledge of Government, Kay Burley should conduct more interviews instead of being stuck on her own, so all in all, a positive step. Just a shame that it turned out the way it did.

I think that the Sky News presenters, reporters & correspondents images need to be updated on this site asap.

Johnnie, I hope that you can please leave the DC photos and videos on the site if you can. He's the greatest TV reporter I've ever seen and a huge loss to Sky. Irreplaceable.

Channel 501's just lost a viewer. More than one I imagine, not just with this but the general cr*p way they are going.

Sky News has been heading downhill so fast in recent months that drastic action was needed.

Part of the problem is all the Breaking News, Sky News Alert rubbish.

Don't preach to us, let us watch and make up our own minds.

BBC News 24 is much more staid than Sky News, but does what it says on the tin - it presents the news.

Sky is too much about the personality of the presenter.

Paula Middlehurst and Faye Barker. They had some breaking news stories and Faye was struggling at times. Paula was excellent as usual. Are these 2 freelancers?
