Re: Former NoTW exec dismissed from the Sun

20.45 BREAKING A former News of the Worlds news editor has been sacked from his position at The Sun over allegations of misconduct from his time at the Sunday tabloid.

Matt Nixson became News Editor in 2006, and reported to Ian Edmondson, an assistant editor who was sacked from the paper and arrested in April.

Mr Nixson joined the NoW in early 2005, having worked previously been a reporter at the Mail on Sunday.

He rose to become Features editor and was given the news job by Andy Coulson, shortly before his resignation in 2007.

Sources said he was escorted out of News International's Wapping headquarters by security.

I thought he was sacked because he said that James Murdoch had lied on Tuesday !

Is it former NoW editor Dominic Myler and legal chief Tom Crone that are reportedly contradicting James Murdoch's testimony at the Culture committee.

From 2006:

Nixson lands news job on News of World

News of the World editor Andy Coulson has handed the vacant post of news editor to Matt Nixson, who did not even apply for the job.

That article reads like a list of those arrested - Coulson, Edmondson, Thurlbeck, Weatherup (and presumably Nixson to follow since NI have offered him up as a baddie).

Interesting little Twitter "handbags" exchange last night between BBC's Robert Peston and MP Tom Watson:

Robert Peston
There has been a dismissal of a Sun journalist tonight in relation to investigations into hacking etc by News Corp. Will give you more soon

tom_watson
Why Sun story now @Peston? More spin to deflect Myler/Crone statement? Where's your dignity?

Robert Peston
@tom_watson Tom, this is an outrageous and untrue allegation

tom_watson
I'm sorry @Peston but you are being spoonfed stories. The Myler statement creates a crisis at NI. You have form. Stop being a patsy.

Robert Peston
@tom_watson That is not worthy of a response

The Sun sacking story appeared about an hour or so after the Myler/Crone statement was released. Peston is a close friend of NI's Will Lewis and has lead with one or two breaking stories. Last night he beat the Times (sister paper of the Sun) to Tweet the Sun sacking. Reporters at the Times could have looked out the window and seen Nixson being frogmarched out by security.

Can't stand Preston, he's booooring, I watched him last night, his body language is a joke, he's uncomfortable taking about NI/Hacking.

He wasn't born to be a TV reporter for sure, his presentation style leaves much to be desired. Unfortunately this story has brought him to the screen a little too often.
