Everyone except the industry and 86 MPs and peers knows something must be done to curb the press's abuses of its power Listening to the familiar, self-justifying nonsense being peddled by the booze industry as the government finally squares up to imposing a minimum unit price on alcohol left me with a sense of deja vu. Where else had I recently heard such special pleading from an industry which is often recklessly indifferent to the destructive c...

Great journalism has always been based on adding context, clarity and compelling storytelling to facts. While the tools have improved, the art is the same: explaining the who, what, where, when and why behind the story. The explosion of data, however, provides new opportunities to think about reporting, analysis and publishing stories. As you may know, there’s already a Data Journalism Handbook to help journalists get started. (I contributed some...

Debtonation.
(Photo Source: the Telegraph) In response to yesterday’s news of Mark Carney being appointed the new governor of the Bank of England, I wrote the following piece for the Guardian’s Comment is Free section, published on November 26. I argue that George Osborne’s choice for governor of the Bank of England will do nothing to prevent the next collapse of the financial system. The original article can be read here. Today the chancellor confirmed that ...

The Bank of England is not an institution in crisis (or, at least, not as far as I can tell). It has of course been criticised for not providing any decent warning or pre-emptive evasive action, as banks grew to become lethal weapons of mass destruction and markets become dangerously over-heated, in the years before the great crash of 2007-8. But few would argue that its performance was as lamentable as that of the Financial Services Authorit...

The proposed merger of Penguin and Random House might be too late for a publishing industry seemingly set on self-destruction There's something quaintly touching about the spectacle of two publishing conglomerates – Bertelsmann and Pearson – arranging for their book-publishing arms (Random House and Penguin respectively) to huddle together for warmth against the icy blasts coming from California (Google and Apple) and Seattle (Amazon). When the d...
