Giles Coren is always right

November 22, 2008

Well that might be going a bit far, and will have some of you spitting comments filled with columnist-induced venom, but today’s offering more than merits it.

I’m not normally a fan of just linking to articles, but Mr Coren’s take on why we don’t need to hear about ‘the r-word’ (recession, just don’t say it loudly, the kids might hear) in every piece of journalism, and why reality TV really does represent the biggest waste of our time and colective hope. Amongt other things in something of a journalistic tour-de-force.

Bravo. Should firmly be part of every PR blog to celebrate good journalism, not just complain about the (sometime) difficulty of dealing with them.
