The ‘news’ of the world

  1. 1. The ‘news’ of the world? At 12.30pm on Sept. 3rd 2013 all bar one of the four/five newsagents’ hoardings for the Lancashire Telegraph were identical. These hoardings were on King Street, from the traffic lights at the bottom of Buncer Lane to the traffic lights at the bottom of Montague Street. No images were used, nor colours, just black and white text stating: • “CHILD SEX BEAST GETS 16 YEARS” • The other hoarding displayed: “ROVERS TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY LATEST”

The paintings, the songs, the hysteria that surrounds her crimes have made her a public force. It is currently one used to reinforce harmful stereotypes and raise politicians' approval ratings. It would be better harnessed to provide lessons in how to prevent the administration of justice being crushed by the steamroller of populist pressure.” See: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2000/oct/17/gender.uk
