The Beef Between These Two British Weather Reporters Is Amazing
Shout out to all the fallen meteorologists in British media's needless weather wars. Winter is coming.
So. British people are obsessed with the weather. But there's one newspaper that's so obsessed it borders on the ridiculous. Step up, the Daily Express.
As you'd expect, British people do British things in response to headlines like this – they tut and grit their teeth. But now, one weather reporter has had ENOUGH.
Liam Dutton is the weather presenter for Channel 4 News. But when he's not telling you about another day of rain, he's involving himself in the most savage weather beef in history.
It all started in 2012, when Dutton noted the Express had a slight obsession with front pages about the weather.
But then Dutton decided to really get sassy.
And he really started to pack the heat, calling journalist Nathan Rao's reporting the "same garbage every year".
It wasn't just Dutton either. Soon, his fans decided to get in on the beef.
After a heated discussion about giant snowballs, we all thought this age-old beef would be over. That finally there would be peace.
But peace remained a fantasy, as Dutton fired more shots.
And the shots kept coming.
Sometimes, Rao tried to fight back.
But, like a hurricane, or mild drizzle, Dutton kept coming back.
Like when Dutton publicly claimed Rao was using sources to deliberately write sensational stories.
Dutton has apparently been waiting on a response for a very, very long time.
Will Dutton ever get his response? How many lives/headline disputes will it take for this war to end?
In conclusion, Liam Dutton is a badass.
Don't mess with him.
