Yes: Journal, Chronicle and Sunday Sun banned by #nufc. Not allowed access to media facilities or, judging by just now, to ask questions

 

Mark Douglas ‏@MsiDouglas 7m

The ban is in response to our coverage of the Time4Change march. #nufc

 

Mark Douglas ‏@MsiDouglas 1m

Myself and @lee_ryder attempted to ask questions about the performance at the press conference but were blocked by the club's press officer

 

:rolleyes:

#nufc have banned @EveningChron from SJP and all media facilities. Alan Pardew refused to take any questions after defeat v #safc

 

#nufc believe coverage of Mike Ashley protest march was too harsh.

 

The ban wasn't revealed by the Chron before the game because it would have wrecked the team's build-up #nufc #safc

 

The ban was agreed by Joe Kinnear, Alan Pardew, Lee Charnley, John Irving and the club Press office. #nufc

Then those 4 cunts need to have their arses handed to them by the local press.

 

Chron/Journal should just consistently print negative articles as 'opinion' and see how the club like it. Fuck'em.

Caulkin and Bird having their say too:

 

George Caulkin ‏@CaulkinTheTimes

Absolutely disgraceful. Two local journalists prevented from asking questions to Alan Pardew.

Evening Chronicle, Journal & Sunday Sun are presently banned from St James' and manager's press conferences. This is allegedly because of Chronicle's coverage of anti-Ashley march. Petty, pathetic and bullying tactics.

 

 

 

Simon Bird ‏@simonbirdmirror 9m

 

Pardew #nufc refusing to take questions from the Journal/local press @MsiDouglas  Not the time to make such a stand.

Now #nufc press officer intervenes to stop questions from @lee_ryder Oh dear. Poor.

#nufc chiefs clearly don't believe in free press. Chronicle coverage of march was actually well balanced. Tactics of the bully.

It might be just the opportunity the press need to actually write stuff without having to worry about biting the hand that feeds them.

 

It's a far cry from the days of Anal getting his pocket money from Freddie Shepherd by writing for the match day programme.

The Chronicle have tiptoed around the club, so as not to get banned, for years and years now. Would be nice to see this release the shackles somewhat but I'd still be mightily surprised if they did. Newcastle United is why they sell newspapers; I can't seem them risking their involvement with the club any further.

Would be great if they did though. Just expose/plaster the NUFC bollocks in the press :fwap:

Neil Farrington is laying into AP.

 

Neilfarrington: Pardew should be kissing feet of the people still prepared to ask him questions, not banning them, the shameless yes man that he is. #nufc

 

Neilfarrington: Hapless, plan B-less, snake oil-selling shyster. His posturing sums up the contempt that club has for the people it hurt today. #nufc

Does harsher press mean Ashley does more bitter and childish things to our club?

 

Probably. What difference does it actually make though? Relegation, so what? Worse players/selling off players? No investment (:lol:)

 

We're a soulless entity nowadays. A nothingness ship sailing along on a sea of averageness, just hoping not to sink but sticking elastoplasts over the engine which is slowly giving up.
