Steven Spielberg’s new film, The Post, is so important for journalism today

Jan

“There has never been a more exciting, exhausting, and dangerous time to be an investigative journalist than now, especially, of course for women.” - Meryl Streep

A rise in fake news and media corruption makes Steven Spielberg’s new blockbuster film, The Post, more important today for investigative journalism than ever.

Meryl Streep stars as Katherine Graham, the first female publisher of The Washington Post, and Editor Ben Bradlee, as they face making the decision to expose government lies or lose their newspaper completely.

Happy New Year, chaps. I hope everyone is enjoying going to the gym and not drinking and doing all the other January things I definitely should do but don’t because I have no self control.

My Thoughts on New Year Resolutions

Jan
13

New year resolutions are absolute garbage. I am sure this sentiment is shared by many people who realise that every year they make promises to themselves that they will never keep. Now, these promises are not unrealistic, they are just small promises we make that will never happen. Classic New Year resolutions include, “I’m going to be a lot healthier this year”, “I’m going to start going to the gym more”, “I’m going to pick up a new hobby.” but even as we say our resolutions we know for a fact that we are never going to see them through.

Jan

To say Star Wars: The Last Jedi had a bit of rocky start with fans of the series is an understatement. Whilst being one of the highest rated films according to critics, fans scored the film at only 49% compared with the critics 90%.

Dear Logan Paul

Jan

Over the course of the holidays writing this blog post has been in the back of my mind as I have continuously pondered on what to write. I wanted to write about something I felt strongly about, one where I could voice my opinion slightly more. And then something happened over the course of Christmas and it became clear to me what it was that I should write about and at first I didn't know how to go about it. Now, I feel like I've found that way and it is a blog post in the style of a letter.

Dear Logan Paul,

Poor journalism and bad English were among the disturbing findings revealed by Adam Landau in his insightful blog post (Who is writing local news? 31 December, 2017). Below is an equally revealing article by someone who has been writing local news for as many years as I have.

"No one cares about this sport only you play"

Jan

Shaky hands, racing heart, sweaty palms, nausea (bit of an exaggeration here) - this is my big chance to clear the name of something I’m so passionate about: KORFBALL. And well, to clear my name in front of all the people who think I’m crazy in love with a sport that doesn’t exist.

What is korfball? I’d rather not fail a thousandth time explaining it, watch the video.

Why am I crazy about it? Unfortunately, there’s no video about this one.

"Radio is dead"

Jan
09

“Radio is dead.” This is a sentence that I have heard numerous times. In fact radio isn’t dying. Radio content is gaining more demand than ever before; it is the way that we listen to radio that is changing so dramatically.

Maybe I am oblivious to the fact that radio is dying. It is, after all, my ambition to work in radio; maybe I can’t admit the truth.
