RT @Steven_Riggall @stilgherrian @abc730 I dunno OMG Hackerz! is a pretty good story angle [It’s 2012, time to move to Chapter 2 I think.]

Somehow, I’m suddenly feeling much better that the pub is showing competitive cooking on TV rather than @abc730 covering last week’s story.

Weeping. Weeping for you and the demise of your planet.

via Janetter for Mac

Watching civilisation collapse before my very eyes.

via Janetter for Mac

“Hosted by Sarah Murdoch” is a selling point? WTF?

via Janetter for Mac

If I owned a national TV network and my success depended on competitive onion-slicing, I reckon suicide would be the only honourable option.

@paulwallbank Has anyone so far explained why “social media success” is a even KPI for an arline or a telco?

Whinging taxi drivers. There’s something unusual.

via Janetter for Mac

Why do so many people piss away half their Twitter profiles explaining they’re not a puppet of their employers? Do you have doubts about it?

Well I’m enjoying @theprojecttv so far, but if @mpesce fucks it up there’ll be hell to pay.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Yeah well I can’t possibly base my work on such pathetic “role models” as your “good” self. Some of us have enquiring minds.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@KristianStupid @R_Chirgwin Why do we need to reference any fictional media at all? Surely if it’s actually news it can stand on its own.

@thomasking In line with the previously-announced policy, I commend unto to you the use of the scroll bar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thomasking

So, it seems journalists ARE given the tools to unearth facts from stacks of numbers, but choose to ignore them and peddle bullshit. Cunts.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Brocklesnitch: I asked my gf & she said they did stats stuff in investigative journalism. [Cheers.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SquigglyRick: We took a compulsory subject in research and stats during mine, but most seemed terribly uninterested… [Yeah, figures.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @R_Chirgwin: Ms T’s first year did, but that was a long time ago … [Yeah, I was hoping for post-WWII examples… *duck*]

via Janetter for Mac

Does any journalism degree, anywhere, include basic instruction in statistics?

via Janetter for Mac

I see TEN News has turned one chicken-shop hold-up into an Inner West crime wave. I wonder how liars face themselves in the mirror.

@jonoabroad You deal with it by not dealing with it. Accepting the character string “porn” as valid, that English isn’t the only language.
