Roger Alton makes a fool of himself on national television

No one who saw Roger Alton's attempt to defend the Murdoch empire on Newsnight this evening will forget it. Puce in the face, sweating like a pig, spouting nonsense. It was sad to see a man brought so low.

No doubt it will appear on Youtube soon. Until it does we will have to make with his appearance on Channel 4 News earlier this year in which he blamed Mumsnet for the closure of the News of the World.

By contrast with his performance tonight it is a model of calm rationality.
