Marr talks to an old fashioned, analogue audience which fails to recognise the power of social to enhance and inform an issue. The BBC has a mountain of data which it could use to open up the conversation about topical, current affairs issues in a productive way. They should do it.
Blaming EU citizens for the effects of UK public sector cuts and poor policies ignores the real value of EU migration, victimises migrants, and serves no useful purpose for the country either.
The situation surrounding Prime Minister David Cameron and the will-he-won't-he with the TV election debates is fairly amusing from the outside, but it provides a huge insight into how politicians actually view the press.
Chicken Dave, Cowardly Cameron those are two phrases that I have typed and uttered repeatedly to describe our out esteemed PM since this television debate farce began. The truth though is that I have never considered his avoidance tactics to be driven by a fear of going toe to toe in a debate with Ed Miliband.
The truth is - and I'm being dangerously honest here - my work just isn't compatible with my mental health, in fact it's quite the opposite; the two are entirely disparate. The highs and lows that come with working in the media devastate me, so in order to survive (or at least pretend to) I'm forced to build a facade of normality and feign that everything is 'fine'.
Many 'old media' titles have shot themselves in the foot by ceding editorial independence in order to keep advertisers sweet. But by losing their voice and their integrity, they are also losing the readers they rely on to keep their ad rates high.
IdeasTap provides funding, career opportunities and mentoring to a network of nearly 200,000 young people across the creative professions. The charity has given away more than £2.3 million to around 62,000 beneficiaries, helping filmmakers, visual artists, designers, theatremakers, writers, actors and a long list of other creative folk get their careers off the ground.
It was hard to beat Kay Burley's response ('I'm sure your mother is incredibly proud of you, Dylan. I know I would be') but this is a poem about the prank and how it felt symptomatic of a much wider issue.
All in all, SASUUM initiated the eye-opening dialogue that will usher in a new dawn of engagement with African affairs.
On numerous occasions, I have seen mothers so absorbed in their task of interacting with their smartphones that they totally ignore the child's plea to talk and interest them in what s/he is observing and thinking.
The present system of the BBC Trust is out of date. It is wrong to consider that an organisation be run by a trust as well as by a company that it is supposed to manage the business. It would seem perfectly normal to understand that the licence holders are no different than shareholders.
On Sunday, The Huffington Post UK imposed a 24-hour ban. On men. We decided to only use pictures of women on the front page - except for Richard Branson, who we'll get onto later. You may well be thinking this is censorship. This is prejudice against men. Yes, it is.
I am a great supporter of this fundamental principle of democracy and I expect it is exercised in good faith and without deliberately distorting the obvious truth. An article published on 8 March by the Daily Mail, with the title "Romanian fury over Channel 4 documentary as their MPs ask: What if we made a programme saying all Brits were alcoholics and paedophiles?" doesn't make me question the principle, but the author's good faith and respect for the truth.
Oborne is right that HSBC's behaviour in helping clients avoid tax was shameful (if not illegal) but he's wrong that the Telegraph's response was just as shameful or immoral. If you're a cynic like me, you might view it as not terribly unusual. And you might wonder how interested the newspaper's readers will be once the story has died down.
The entire press industry seems to be founded and carried out upon a contaminated money making, ego drilling field where journalists who do see better get ensnared in the pressure to oblige their editors and proprietors.
Let's change the narrative. We fought side by side during WWII, we are close allies in Nato and partners in the EU, we are "Europeans", people who believe in the same values, friends and neighbours. It is true that each local authority in England must have experienced change because of immigration. Local circumstances, tensions or problems cannot be ignored. But let us try and think how to integrate migrants better.
