Guido: we were behind Newmark sting
Wednesday 1 October The Guido Fawkes reporter Alex Wickham was responsible for the Sunday Mirror splash that led to the resignation of Brooks Newmark from the Government.

People editor heading for the exit
Sunday People editor James Scott and his deputy Nick Buckley are leaving after the announcement last month that the paper's staff would be merged with the Sunday Mirror's editorial team.
Trinity Mirror said at the the time that the merger would mean the loss of about eight editorial jobs. The company has cut nearly 300 staff from the Daily and Sunday Mirror and the People's editorial teams since 2010 - about a third of the workforce.
The People, which won the front page of the year prize at this year's British Press Awards for its Nigella Lawson exclusive, sells about 380,000 copies a week, compared with 1.6 million at the turn of the millennium.
Scott and Buckley were arrested last year on suspicion of conspiracy to intercept voicemails. They are both still on police bail.
Wednesday 13 August Kellie Maloney sought out a "friendly" newspaper to write about her transition to life as a woman after journalists from other papers started chasing her story. She told Good Morning Britain today that she had threatened to take out an injunction to stop one paper publishing in February and that journalists from another had been to her house and doorsteps members of her family.
"I spoke with my lawyer and a couple of people who have been very good to me and I said, 'Look, I'm living in a shadow. I'm living in the dark. I can't go out of my house no more. I'm terrified.' They said: 'We need to find a paper that would be very friendly' and I said I'd only do this as long as I've got control because transgender people have been ridiculed in the press and I didn't want that to happen to me."
