In Britain, it's a mixed story of trust in media. The Edelman Trust Barometer - an annual survey of how much we believe the major institutions which govern our lives will "do the right thing"- suggests a large number of us simply don't.
If parents can have such an impact on their child's well-being surely it's time more adults begin to take responsibility for their own health, thereby encouraging their children to follow suit?
It is time to call out the media bias and election fraud to ensure democracy in the most influential country in the world. Hillary isn't already the Democratic candidate.
My blog this month has involved a small amount of research on my part following my ever growing irritation at the lack of diversity depicted in TV ads. This irritation has grown to the point where certain adverts evoke a barrage of non-repeatable words and a rise in my blood pressure.
That's actually not a bad way to approach life in general, but who knows how the British will actually vote in the referendum - will it be a rollercoaster ride or will we play safe? Let's find out on June the 23rd.
As an entertainment journalist, I should not feel lucky to work somewhere that hasn't fuelled speculation over whether Amber is telling truth, or given a platform to Johnny's pals who, of course, find the idea that he could physically harm a woman ridiculous. But that's the position I've found myself in.
This incident has become an opportunity to judge parents. This time it's about us not controlling our children enough. Other times the focus is that we are controlling them too much. It seems that we can never get it right. And perhaps that's the point - there is no right.
Throughout the comments sections of blogs and articles explaining disabled people's views are non-disabled people telling us we're wrong. Not just about the film but pretty much whatever we've said.
The PJS v NGN injunction case is just another ugly example of a paid tabloid betrayal/kiss-and- tell story without a shred of genuine public interest ...

I just read the BBC article about ...
As Ipso deferentially concedes in the adjudication: "IPSO acknowledged the importance of headlines in tabloid newspapers". You might think that if it did so, it would also acknowledge the importance of headlines being corrected with some degree of equivalence when it comes to prominence and reach.
I'm one of the undecideds, and because we hold the key to the result, we are driving the political strategy and media coverage. It's clear that both sides will do anything to win us over. And it's also clear that there is a way to go before the shark is completely jumped. This makes me think that it's not going to be long before we see some very underhand activity.
Quotas will do nothing to solve this problem; what is needed is a culture which does not put media circulation (which is easy to increase by fuelling confirmation biases) ahead of the very people in whose interests those attacking Oxbridge claim to act. However, such cultural shifts are far harder to achieve than the arbitrary imposition of a quota - an option which may be easy but is most certainly not right.
Last night, I was watching one of my favourite programmes when, out of the blue, a male character made a joke about bulimia. When attempting to flirt with a lady at a bar, he joked that to get a figure 'as great as hers' she must've repeatedly made herself sick. It was meant to evoke a chuckle from the audience, but it was one joke that I simply couldn't laugh at. Bulimia is many things, but the one thing it isn't? Funny.
Few know the stigmatisation of mental illness better than the mentally ill themselves. From being told to just 'cheer up, love,' or over-hearing a col...
Last night's Question Time was in Aberdeen. On the panel were Conservative secretary of state for Scotland David Mundell MP, the SNP's minister for Europe Humza Yousaf MSP, Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale MSP, former SNP deputy leader Jim Sillars and editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek magazine Merryn Somerset Webb. We checked their claims on Scottish public attitudes, election results, immigration and jobs.
