Bizarre call by Sky to ditch the Coronavirus press conference in favour of the FBI press conference on Ghislaine Maxwell.


And it wasn't even 'live', but 'latest'. More viewer interest though than ditching it for that funeral the other week.

It had to be a delayed feed for compliance reasons, from what I have been told.

Yes, and also the fact that Maxwell is a British citizen and there was the potential for information about Prince Andrew. If Sky broadcast a defamatory statement by the FBI, then the palace wouldn’t be best pleased.

Even if a statement by the FBI would almost 100% be true.

Downing Street is lit up in blue tonight, resulting in Jon Craig looking like he's being keyed over it. And that's why strong blue isn't a good colour on camera...

Nick Quraishi did the 7am-11am shift on LBC News, and now he's on the 2pm shift at Sky News. He was also reading the news on Times Radio earlier in the week.

He does get around! I was listening to him reading the news on Radio 2 (I think?) one evening a few weeks ago, and then he was on the Sky News overnight shift a few hours later.

...and only accounts for 11% of a composite white signal (Green 59%, Red 30%), which is why in analogue times it was most prone to noise, and why, in order to subjectively assess that, professional monitors often had a 'blue only' selection button
