LESS HYPE, LESS SPIN, AND JUST THE (GRAPHIC) FACTS, BABY

the_independent.750

We need more editors like Simon Kelner.

And less art directors.

Less decorators.

Less designers.

Less cosmetic journalism.

Less infographic artists.

And more visual journalists and editors like the editor of The Independent.

Today, all the British papers are using the same BIG words about the “savage cuts” announced by the new government:

“Dramatic”

“Agressive”

“Huge”

Well, that’s easy hype and spin.

The reality check is this front page.

“Show, don’t tell” at its best.

The rest is bullshit.

Non sense.

Garbage.

Bad journalism or, better, lack of journalism.

We are here to tell the real story.

Not just propaganda stuff.

With front pages like this one you cannot say more with less.

Caviar Journalism.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
