BREAKING (the internet)

Not fake news: BBC reporter James Longman is distractingly beautiful

We suspect Brits have fallen woefully behind on current events. That’s because they’re probably too busy gawking over BBC News reporter James Longman to process what might be coming out of his mouth.

The 30-year-old Middle East specialist, who will be featured in the new issue of Attitudedoesn’t think there’s anything wrong with sharing intimate moments and intensely shirtless workouts on Instagram while also keeping the public up-to-date on world affairs.

“I don’t think that my life with my friends, going to the beach, is a conflict,” he tells the magazine. “I think it’s good, certainly for a younger audience, to know a bit more about the people who are telling them about the world.”

Although perhaps there have been a few times where he’s revealed a little too much on social media.

“There are a couple of posts on my Instagram that are a bit close to the line and I probably won’t do that again” he says.

We’ve meticulously gone through every photo in his Instagram account and personally don’t see anything wrong at all:

    Awful opening paragraph. You mean we don’t follow Trump the way you Mericans do? – do you have any foreign news stories over there

    • MacAdvisor

      We have recently discovered the Queen is done speaking with you if she moves her purse from one and to another. Does that count? There are also many stories about the Brexit, which seems to be the non-human version of Trump (not to imply Trump is necessarily human).

    There used to be an ex-BBC journalist who went to Pleasuredrome in Waterloo

  • Alan down in Florida

    Before I pretend he’s just another one of a billion beautiful men is he single and what team does he play for?

  • ProfessorMoriarty

    Goodness he is pretty.

  • Jack Meoff

    Now that would be enough to make me sit up and pay attention just maybe not to the news. The world needs more out and proud gay journalists so bring it on James.

  • He BGB

    Social media must be manna from heaven for narcissists. Look at me! Look at me at In n Out Burger! Look at my abs! Look at my pecs! I’m on TV! I’m special! I’m famous! Please love me ! Haha hahaha!

    • talktalktalk

      true. Seems he wants to be Kim Kardashian not a serious reporter

  • James Hart

    If the guy’s not sleeping with me, who cares what team he plays for or what he looks like.

  • ethan_hines

    Longman huh? You don’t say!

  • talktalktalk

    meh. average face and seemingly only in love with himself. Plus not sure posting that stuff equals serious journalist. Does he want to be a respected reporter or Kim Kardashian?

  • Jack Meoff

    So many bitter queens on this site to willing to tear others down. Talk about tall poppy syndrome.
