The Rise of the Journalist as a Door to Door Salesman?

You’ve got to hand it to our chief Henry Peirse, he’s no word mincer. Last week his tweet looked pretty much like a grumpy declaration of war: “Anybody that thinks the #futureofnews #journalism is about training reporters and journalists to be entrepreneurs is a moron”, said Henry, and all jumped in the ditches and poked …

Are you on the Map?

It is not that we object to being called at 3am to be asked “Just out of interest, who have you got in the Solomon Islands?” It is what we do! Then again, if general curiosity grips you at ungodly hours of the night, or if you really do need a correspondent somewhere, anywhere, feel …

Reporting Gaza from Tel Aviv

This has been a strange week for providing international news coverage. Once the Israeli attack on Gaza started we immediately contacted our correspondents there to check they are safe, sound, and available. Safe they are not, but Gaza is where they are based and they were keen to make their news known. Our Israel correspondents, …

Friends with Benefits

This week we recommend you check out interesting blog entries from our friends at the International News Safety Institute. Top Pakistan TV anchors sent death threats for condemning Malala attack and a fascinating interview with James Rodgers, who has covered conflicts in Chechnya, Gaza and Iraq, and now published a new book. ‘I want to share with …

Let the Royals Play for Us

The summer is most certainly over. It is sometimes hard to tell in the UK but I’ve cunningly learned over time that you know for sure when the rain keeps falling but your feet start freezing. Experience is everything! The silly season of journalism was late this summer. The queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics …

Missing the Spirit of the Moment

The British exhilaration over the Olympic and Para-Olympics games must have puzzled some spectators. In July they unanimously converted overnight from a grumpy and grunting “this is going to be dreadful, I’m getting out of London until it is over” kind of mood, to a state of national exhilaration which threw them back – as …

Mind the Gaff

Politicians, especially US republican ones, are known to put their foot in it when it comes to world facts. George W Bush has broken some world records when it comes to factual gaffs and us, journalists, were the first to get on his case for it. Mitt Romney is constantly challenging Bush Junior’s title, with …

When the Public Has Something to Hide

Hundreds of people, according to the Jerusalem police, watched the lynching of 4 Palestinians in Zion Square, at the centre of the Israeli capital, early morning on Saturday 19th August. One of the victims, Jamal Julani, was beaten to the ground and the mob kept kicking his head long after he had lost consciousness. He …

“It Will Be Messy”: An Interview With Stephen Starr, author of Revolt in Syria

This week we were lucky enough to chat with our Syria correspondent Stephen Starr, just as his book, Revolt in Syria: Eyewitness to the Uprising (Hurst 2012) is coming out. He sheds some light on one of the most intriguing of all the Middle East countries. The reviews are quite startling. Noam Chomsky said: “This …
