Pie wins major award for breaking ranks and telling the truth.

UK broadcast journalist Jonathan Pie has landed top gong at the prestigious Rake & Herald Golden Hack Awards 2015 held in a layby near Polgooth t'other day.

Pie, who also uses the nom de plume Tom Walker, beat off stiff competition from a BBC man who repeats what he reads on the wires verbatim and an ITN woman trained to spew out what she's told via an autocue.

Unfortunately, as the Rake & Herald hasn't yet issued a press release, there's nothing for me to copy and paste, like quotes and stuff.

Similarly, due to pressing deadlines/last orders, I haven't got time to make stuff up either.

So instead, here's Pie's award-winning report, filmed in front of some big house up country somewhere.

Plymouth probably.

Maybe Exeter.

But there's more to Pie's reporting style than simply telling the truth.

He also wears a tie while covering all the big stories, like that Cameron shoving his cock in a dead pig.

And when it comes to major news, Pie is not the sort of hack to get bogged down with political tittle-tattle, celebrity gossip or arse-licking the royals.

What's more, a consummate professional, Pie leaves no stone unturned in getting Jeremy Hunt's name right.

Which is more than can be said for that Naughtie bloke off Radio 4.

Jonathan Pie, we salute you.

Prize is in the post, yeah?

It's probably some stamps or a postal order.

The above vids are all embedded here on the news-tastic Rake & Herald from Jonathan Pie's excellent YouTube channel, which you are strongly advised to check out and subscribe to here. And if you're into FaceBook, why not give his page (where we nabbed that photo) a like to boot? I did.
