Blair Cottrell fallout hits Sky in the wallet, "hysterical leftist" Paul Syvret says goodbye to News Corp, and other media tidbits of the day.
Sky loses sponsors. The fallout from Sky News' interview with far-right extremist Blair Cottrell has continued with companies pulling advertising from the pay-TV network. Credit card company American Express and nappy brand Huggies have both confirmed on their Twitter accounts they have pulled advertising from Sky News. Huggies said Cottrell's interview "did not align with our values relating to diversity", and Amex said "recent content on the channel does not reflect our brand values".
