Newsnight Editor's "Boring Snoring" Twitter Fail Makes the News

By Gary Cutlack on at

BBC Newsnight editor Ian Katz embarrassed himself royally yesterday, after accidentally describing a Labour MP who appeared on the show as "Boring Snoring" in a tweet meant as a cynical DM to a friend. Now his mistake has been immortalised in the closing credits of the show.

The above image comes from the end credits of last night's Newsnight, which simply gives out Katz's Twitter ID and the #fail hashtag. Given how much Katz has been apologising over the last 24 hours to poor old Rachel Reeves, the Labour Party and the whole of the internet in general, you'd think he'd rather forget about it than try to turn himself into a meme.
