Daily: Ian Dunt meets FLEET STREET FOX

Infamous anonymous blogger FLEET STREET FOX lifted the lid on the seedy world of tabloid journalism in the Leveson years – then in 2013 unmasked herself as Mirror columnist Susie Boniface. She tells Ian Dunt how being a total pain in the arse is the way to get into journalism, where the loathing of hacks really comes from… and why the credibility of print goes all the way back to Babylonian tax inspectors. Audio note: features guest appearance by a dog.


• “I started in journalism because I couldn’t stand the idea of other people doing it and getting it wrong”

• “Is journalism a dying industry? It’s been dying since the first newspaper was printed!”

• “The human mind has been bred to think that if something is in black and white print, it’s fact”
