Fucking hell, News Ltd websites run some shit they call news, don’t they? Check out the main pic at dailytelegraph.com.au:
Yes, you read that correctly. The royal newlyweds weren’t able to watch a movie on a flight. It’s a perfect example of investigative journalism and front page news that should be taught to journalism students everywhere.
At heraldsun.com.au, it’s such important news that it’s an Editor’s pick:
I don’t know why the “royal couple” means a photo of half that couple. It’s not like it’s difficult to find a photo of them together.
News.com.au also ran this story, along with “news” about Apple fakes in China (holy shit, get outta here), an expensive boat, and an entertainment reporter saying she likes trashy mags but most of it’s made up. Yet nothing about Uncle Rupert. Funny that. (And I have to thank @agnte for showing me that’s not even news.)
News Ltd owns 70 per cent of the Australian news media. Just think of all those stories that aren’t being covered while online editors get their teams of journalists to put other people’s stories about trivial bullshit on their websites.
Update: Editor’s pick at dailytelegraph.com.au is now a video of a dog jumping out of a car window. You couldn’t make this shit up.
