The Times vs Night Jack

with one comment

News International feel the ire

Unlike some I’m not too afraid to link to The Time on this issue, I think it is actually rather a good idea to allow those who haven’t delved into the world of the blogosphere to understand the depth of feeling over the outing of Night Jack and the poor editorial judgement (in my view) of The Times. I repeat, I have no argument with the legal position, only with the journalistic stance, and I still cannot see what has been gained by the public in learning the identity of Night Jack. I can see what journalists may have tried to gain, it’s called an upper hand – how bloody silly!

  1. What a shame!!! I was in Newcastle today and found my way down Grainger Street somewhat blocked by a noisy, placard-waving gang of what looked like ne’er-do-wells. Turned out they were a rent-a-gang group of supposedly journalists. They were holding a demo demanding “freedom for journalism”. a shame because they hadn’t thought along those lines for Night Jack.
