Danny Schechter 1942-2015 - an appreciation.

Danny Schechter, surely one of the greatest, if not the greatest, American journalist of the twentieth century sadly passed away on Thursday 19th March 2015 after a brave battle with cancer. His prolific output, commitment to truth, justice and humanity should be a beacon of light to young journalists everywhere. Here is my tribute to the News Dissector with whom I corresponded for 14 years.

Why we boycott the Sun Newspaper. Don't buy it, don't read it!

As you may be aware the people of Liverpool have been involved in a long, protracted and nasty battle with the British state, and their mediums of communication. In particular the Sun newspaper, or as it's known here the Scum. We don't buy it, we don't stock it in our newsagents. If you visit Merseyside you will not find a copy of that shit in any of our railway stations, railworkers amongst many others refuse to have anything to do with it...Don't ask for it because you will be causing offence. <br/>
