Humble pie?

"The truth of the matter was that Whyte was a small-time chancer who was carrying out this entire fake-over wearing suspiciously ill-fitting suits and pointy pleather shoes.

Also, it is to my own eternal shame that I was dragged 
into this ‘wealth off the radar’ charade having been instructed to write a puff piece by Waddell on the night we were breaking the news that Whyte was in talks to buy his big pal out.

Hand on heart. It was the first time that I had heard 
his name.

Within an hour I had 
rattled up a 1000-words 
backgrounder on the basis that I trusted the information being handed down by my own superiors.

If every day is a school day then this was the most 
difficult, pride-swallowing lesson learned in 25 years on this editorial floor"

Now this is a 'professional journalist' who originally went with a story without checking any of the facts, ten minutes on Companies House would've went a long way.

Oor Keef getting his retaliation in first.

Can't wait to read wee Craigy's tome.

Made an ass of it.

Holds his hand up

Good for him

whoever he is
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He's only doing it to mitigate the impending damage from Whyte's forthcoming bestseller.

Jackson is as arrogant as they come.
Traynor Jr. if you will.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh good timing then.

I don't know the guy but will take your word for it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks mate, but please also check the facts, I could be a Daily Re*ord Journo.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Apparently this whole Corona virus nonsense is just to deflect from Rangers dropping points.

Jackson just proving to everyone what we already know..

He isn't a journalist


----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think he is.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
If that's what counts for journalism today, Wee Old Betty down the street is a journalist too.

Just repeating what you've heard or been told

FFS, Weig on here is a more qualified journalist by that standards.

well if you are debating the quality of the journalistic work (of which Im sure you are an expert) then that is different.

I don't read the Record so cannot comment on that and nor would I given Im not an expert on it.

I don't understand why the rangers fans are not interested in his story. If someone done that to celtic I would want to know why and how it happened

You don't have to be an expert on journalism to know that a journalist should have two sources for every story, who corroborate what is being reported.

Jackson has just shown himself up to being anything but a journalist.

He's just a mouthpiece for whoever tells him what to say and when to say it.

no you don't have to be one but it helps.
But his boss seems to have asked him to write the story.

You end up with all sorts just saying they know better

When they probably don't

Perhaps in this story he has been rather silly.

I doubt very much one incident as such would mean he is not a journalist.

But its for you Record readers to decide if you continue or not to read the stuff they publish.

No one is remotely surprised I’d imagine. Or that interested.
