The Truth about Goats

Closing Sky News ‘less a threat, more a dare’

Sky’s threat to close its news division, if it impedes Fox’s takeover, has been greeted with a modicum of indifference and widespread hope.  For many, the absence of Sky News is like the end of white noise – with the emphasis on the word ‘white’ – or similar to getting the all-clear from the STI clinic.

Arguably, Sky News has always been a bit of a misnomer or an idiot’s description of weather reporting.  Since the late 80’s Sky has been a pioneer, blurring the boundary between journalism and a magic eight-ball.

If necessary the public have offered to crowdfund Fox’s takeover, if it means an end to Sky News and that Adam Boulton gets sold off for scrap. While as threats go, Sky’s ranks alongside the Wicked Witch’s infamous: ‘I’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog too! But keep the shoes. They match your dress perfectly. Does anyone have a glass of water? I’m parched’.

Ending Sky News will leave a hole in everyone’s life and there is no greater ‘a hole’ than Kay Burley.  Said one fan: ‘One concern is – where will the public get an equivalent news feed?’ It’s not as if everyone has access to a racist Aunt, who thinks Jeremy Corbyn killed Madeleine McCann.’

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
