Is it me or is Guido disappearing up his own proverbial? Calling this ongoing Smeargate episode "schoolboyish" is being extremely unfair to schoolboys.
It seems Guido's main gripe is that Draper/McBride etc weren't as good at doing what he (Guido) does very well. Sort of gossip under the radar type of thing. There is this classic from Guido yesterday:
Maguire was still peddling innuendo from them about “Cameron’s alleged embarrassing complaint of a highly personal nature”.
Peddling innuendo? Perish the thought. Guido would never do that, would he?
So its seems a journalist isn't allowed to peddle innuendo but a blogger like Guido is.
In essence, this seems to be a row over job descriptions. Guido can't get a job as a real journalist so he invents a job as a blogger, but he doesn't want journalists invading his turf.
It's a turf war, really, isn't it?
