Footage of live reaction to Fox 5’s drooling analysis of Kate Middleton’s face was doing the rounds on social media today as press treatment of Meghan Markle went under the microscope.
Good Day DC presenters complemented the Duchess of Cambridge’s perfect nasal tip rotation on the show, drawing a notably exasperated reaction from Maureen Umeh who gave it an “epic side eye”.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
