Blow the whistle

The NUJ have a 'Blow The Whistle' campaign running.

You should support it. Tell them about shoddy cheap journalism wherever you see it.
It'd be really good if Councillors - in particular - could turn up a bit of heat on local papers and their refusal to report local government with any accuracy or sense of responsibility.

The local paper where I grew up (let us call it the "Salopian Moon") has (or at least had; it's been a while) a little bit of a reputation for printing the names of people who thought they weak speaking off the record. Apparently this happens to non-Tories far more than to Tories. Which is a big surprise to everyone, I'm sure.

And they are so fecking thick that they continue to speak about contentious things 'off the record' to journos? There's a Darwin award in there somewhere.
