The Telegraph giving Sadowitz a good review? Whatever next - the Express to admit Diana is dead?

Going a bit Adam Curtis.

Murdoch's papers carried out a character assassination on Gordon Brown when he wouldn't play their game. That much was clear even at the time. What troubles me is how easily the public and even other media bought into The Narrative. It's the same way they bought into The Narrative that the Lib Dems were irrelevant and unelectable. Enough papers said it, so comedians made jokes about it and this became popular knowledge. Once people actually heard from them on an even platform, like the televised debate, they realised The Narrative could change. It was not an absolute.

The fact the Lib Dems turned out to be cowardly turncoats is not the point...

Media has changed. With Twitter, Facebook and the internet in general, we can get our information and spread it through numerous sources. We can change The Narrative, just as we did with the phone-hacking scandal when so many tried to ignore it. Closing the News of the World achieves nothing, but it does point us in the right direction on what we can do next.

It should have been obvious from George W Bush what happens when you get someone in charge who the 'man in the street' can identify with, rather than the kind of person who is abnormal enough to want to be in charge of a country...

Paul McMullan is a comedy figure and really ought to be cast as Renfield in a new production of Dracula, but his shabby one-suited alcoholic pen-clicking demeanour mustn't distract us from the truth. This is a man who admits hounding Denholm Elliott's daughter to suicide with the aid of bribed police officers.

I'd seriously like to hamper the profits of that pub... but can't think of a way to do so that wouldn't involve inadvertantly promoting it.

At the Edinburgh Festival? Then you want to go see Jerry Sadowitz, Aug 6-14 at the Assembly Hall.

Jerry Sadowitz – Comedian, Magician, Psychopath!

“If you like Pol Pot, you’ll love Jerry Sadowitz! With his incorrigible smile and his propensity to hurl his underwear at female members of the audience, you’ll be so helpless with looking for the police, you’ll forget how much you paid to get in! Jerry is also one of the greatest card magicians in the world ,but with the planet in such a mess, WHO GIVES A F**K?? Just PayPal the money before one of us DIES."

"Funniest comedian in Britain" - The Guardian
"The most exciting act in town" - Metro

Age Restriction – 18+. ADULTS ONLY

You may have recognized one of +Thomas Hawk's images in today's Washington Post Blog piece. (Third row, juxtaposed in close proximity to an image of Wal-Mart).

Should photographers like Thomas be concerned about Google+ Terms of Service? It seems we are granting Google perpetual and irrevocable permission to change, commodify and redistribute everything we upload here. Does this ring any alarm bells for you?
