    I think Sky’s coverage of the events in Baghdad today has been excellent, David Chater has reported things in his usual fantastic manner, and I also like Tim Marshall’s analysis, he always has that extra bit of information- he clearly has a lot of sources.

    I liked the floor map they used for the Chinook helicopters story. and i have noticed they have been camera paning from left to right and right to left during the newspaper review which also looks cool.

    I wonder if the US National Security advisor Condoleezza Rice will have ( I assume the testimony will go under oath ) to give away any crucial information that will give some bad reputation to the Bush government?!

    Was Dr Ramiz of Baghdad University live from Baghdad, or was he in London and what did he say about the cleric al-Sadr and his militia? Do they have substantial Shii support for example. What does he think will happen in the upcoming weeks?

    I wish I could have seen that. Great to have Iraqis on the news too. This is a great idea Johnnie especially for those who don’t have Sky right now…as long as someone can please find the time to update me on what a guest says!! (or a reporter). Thanks

    Well not necessarily a promotion. He has been doing the reporting for a fair few weeks now. He is freelancing and still occasionly does presenting as well – although I’m not too sure if he’s done any night shifts recently.

    I think sky news is an exceptional news station, that has the most accurate news on Iraq in my opinion.

    However The name of the programme ‘Little John’ is offensive;deeply insulting.Also it’s not descriptive by any means, so why is it called that?This name is hurtful and is almost an allegation.

    Therefore; in conclusion I ask you to change the name or I will e-mail the Government.

    We are not Sky News – we are are fansite to Sky News. So therefore we cannot do anything about LittleJohns name……. I fail to see how calling a TV show by your surname is offensive
