Just because you have new information doesn't mean you should report it. Let the police do their jobs, let the anti terror unit investigate, and stop encouraging people to be afraid by adding to speculation.
Now maybe it's just because I follow a Twitter echo chamber of thirty and forty-somethings who are just like me, but it does seem like a hefting chunk of the people up in arms about the Bieber cover are people for whom getting the NME was a highlight of their weeks, like twenty odd years ago. I think we need to butt out, we need to let it go. For our sake.
Starting a petition is the first step on a campaign's journey. The next is to build an army of supporters to help you take action, create momentum and make the change you want to see happen...
The inquest into Arthur's death reminds us of the same thing: this was not some shadowy death of a rock star's son, fated for tragedy because of his links to fame, but a heartbreaking experience of drugs by young, naive person.
If he chose to reveal himself and his status, then that would be a story, and a positive story at that. But it is certainly not his responsibility to do so, despite what The Sun might think and who have, in the process, potentially helped undo years of work battling the stigma attached to HIV.
The folks at the right-wing tabloids saw the same video that I saw. They saw a small, but acceptable bow. They saw a clear show of respect from Jeremy...
John Lewis has said that the purpose of the ad is to raise awareness of the elderly and the importance of being together at Christmas through "thoughtful gift giving". But, in an age of intense commercialism, does the ad have mixed messages?
I was reading a magazine the other day and in two separate stories, the word mental was used to describe a derogative issue. One used it in reference to a violent night out while the other was used to highlight an acrimonious breakup - both which denote pessimistic outcomes.
You do not buy Esquire or GQ for critical insight. What you do when you buy these mags is collude in the lie; that we can all look that handsome, smell that great, wear those expensive clothes, buy that watch and be that clever, smart, wealthy, funny and attractive.
Mindshare As Founder and Managing Director, Cindy's work in the Mindshare Invention Studio brings the concept of "Media-As-Creative" to li...
To be a successful fashion blogger, one seems to need the following: a DSLR camera, an iPhone, abundant spare time and endless money. Neither an in-depth interest in fashion nor a passion for writing seem to be prerequisite to blogging success.
Images can be incredibly impactful; they can simply inform us but they also have the ability to evoke emotion in a way that words can't. They can tell stories in an instant, performing the role of a simple visual diary, whilst at their most powerful they can be a vehicle for change...more on that later.
We have abused our world for so long that we take it for granted that there is no other way to behave. We like things as they are and we learnt to love lies. Lies are good for you - they make you feel better. We are the last generation who can stop climate change and save the world from mass extinction. James Lovelock guessed that by the end of this century there would be only one billion people left. He thinks we're too late to stop it because we are too stupid. Scientists all agree we must act now, they are not sure how much time we have and if time has run out.
I thought my media outrage was done for the week when Buzzfeed published an article that casually suggested people with disabilities are unattractive. Little did I know the front page of last Wednesday's Telegraph would scale new heights in Totally Overwhelming Nonsense.
The Sun newspaper recently announced that it would stop its 'pay wall' on its site, making online stories "largely free" to the public by the end of N...
We all know journalism does a lot of reporting but it is about time that the industry addresses this problem, which ironically exists under its very nose. If it does, a more diverse range of voices will have a platform to be expressed which can only lead to a more democratic industry.
