Frustrated reporter drops F-bomb on air


According to, Sky News chief political correspondent Jon Craig lost his composure and dropped the F-word in exasperation during a report on British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Brussels trip to meet with EU leaders.

“Oh f***ing hell,” he groaned, momentarily looking back in annoyance to Big Ben.

Cutting back to the news studio, the newsreader then apologised for the slip.

There was less of a ding dong in later bulletins, which ran a full report by Craig with no distraction from the chimes of the London landmark.
