Daily Bollocks - my answer to journalism

Hellooo!

So today I have had no work to do (yay!) so I started looking through old files on my computer and I found a thing I made called "Daily Bollocks". 

The press at the moment is ridiculous. I am the first one to admit that I love buying magazines and I love reading interviews, but what I don't love is reading gossip.  I don't really see the point. Interviews are by and large different, they normally (although not always) contain these weird things called facts. I find it strange that we have accepted that journalists don't need to put facts in articles - surely people's lives aren't that boring, and if they are - don't write about them! I also hate reading interviews that are the same in every single magazine and seem to bring up information that we all know and don't care about. 

Daily Bollocks is a spoof of a magazine/newspaper, which incorporates all of my annoyances. I also made a collage type thing of some made up headlines.  The "news" in Daily Bollocks is old, but you will get my point (I hope). Let me know what you think...

Katie :)
