Spin Doctor At No 10 Tries To Bully A BBC Reporter.

This video is fascinating on two levels the first is the fact that a well known Conservative spin doctor, Craig Oliver actually confronts BBC reporter Norman Smith right outside No 10 and persistently complains to him about the recent coverage his channel has run on the current scandal surrounding the  Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport Jeremy Hunt and his alleged improper connection with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

The second reason this video is fascinating is that a well known Conservative spin doctor was foolish enough to confront a television reporter right outside No 10, blissfully unaware that the entire conversation was being recorded on camera. You would think a man like Craig Oliver, an ex-BBC executive, would be a little more savvy when handling the press.

Malcolm Tucker, of course, would have embarked upon on an entirely different course of action.
