Well, all sorts of things are going to fly under the media’s radar this week, aren’t they?
My two favourite tweets last night:
- @sixthformpoet: The Pope is hardly the first person to lose interest in their real job so soon after joining Twitter.
- @RyanSheales: The Pope is going on extended hollandaise #ExBenedict
This morning there’s a whole bunch of mean-spirited ageism and ableism, which is much less amusing.
What’s piqued your media interests lately?
As usual for media circus threads, please share your bouquets and brickbats for particular items in the mass media, or highlight cogent analysis or pointed twitterstorms etc in new media. Discuss any current sociopolitical issue (the theme of each edition is merely for discussion-starter purposes – all current news items are on topic!).
