Guardianista Pigs Walk on Two Legs

Not really sure what to make of the Guardian’s advert, the management seem very proud of it. Alan Rusbridger says it is about what they mean by “open news” as they move towards a mutual form of journalism. Meaning probably that they won’t pay for content, the HuffSlo Arianna model of slave-journalism is already mirrored over at Comment is Free (of charge). So many wannabees crave having Guardian bylines that they will write for free. Which is just as well, because that is probably the only way the Guardian is going to avoid bankruptcy.

In the newspaper’s reception they have put stuffed pigs staring at Guardian staff as they walk in:

Given the amount of hypocrisy at Kings Place in the building that is the HQ of left-of-centre hand-wringing; the hundreds of millions in offshore GMG corporate holdings in the Caymans tax haven, the half-a-million quid a year reward for failure paid to the editor of a loss-making paper that rails against high-pay, the columns from the multi-millionairess anti-poverty campaigner Polly Toynbee, the support for comprehensive schools from journalists who went to and send their children to private schools, it seems fair to quote Orwell to them:

“No question now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

After all, the Guardian’s pigs do walk on two legs…

    Public service notice says:

    The Guardian is worse than the Mirror.

    I see Polly is moaning about tax credits today, can someone explain to her that it is a massive waste of money? better of to lower tax for everyone.

    Whippersnapper2 says:

    Not only do they walk on 2 legs but much more frighteningly they breed into the gene pool. Disgusting anti-Semitic piece of garbage the rag is. I am delighted to say I have NEVER paid money for a copy in my life ….ever. In fact one of my more pleasurable moments a couple of years ago was to delete them from my browser. It’s amazing what kick you can get from a click. (of a mouse) Try it….

    Just who else in the UK, apart from the low earners, pays the full amount of tax? Does the low earner have the opportunity for tax avoidance like those on high incomes. Where is the fairness, where is the we are all in this together.
    How can tax avoidance be allowed?

    While you are on newspapers

    Is anyone keeping a running score on the number of journalists arrested and charged ?

    I see the defence correspondent of the SUN was bailed yesterday

    That must make about 20 journos in total ?

    No one covering the Rig blow out in Nigeria 17th of Jan. No wonder they have to do the global news on LOOPS as every one needs to get it about 20 times till they believe it.
    State sponsored Media started with Thatcher smashing Fleet Street to pieces. No balanced news. Immigration lies, Phoney Drug War, WMD. A bankrupt country with bankrupt policies. Make sense really

    Cameron goes zooming off at my expense to some Euro Summit to discuss the fuckin economic crisis. He manages to give an impromptu Press Conference. in his first sentence he refers to the term economic growth three times. He then goes on to talk about Syria and human rights violations before walking off.

    I tell you the guy is a complete and utter wanker.

    The problem with the Guardian is it’s read by the BBC and taken by the BBC as THE source for all news stories.

    “…By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The Guardian and The Independent. ­Producers refer to them routinely for the line to take on ­running stories, and for inspiration on which items to cover. In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told ‘it’s all in there’….”

    The way the DWP works is this.

    You send a copy to them. They lose that too.
    You send another copy. They send it to somewhere like Liverpool to have it opened.
    Then it is sent somewherre else while it sits in a pile until they allocate someone to look at it.
    If you are lucky, after a month they might read the letter.

    The DWP is totally, utterly fucking useless.

    Pedalpoweredwheelchair says:

    Not completely accurate: The Irish are North Atlantic haplotype semi-purists who have far less non-Caucasian DNA in them. The irony therefore being that the “earliest” Britons are more closely related to the Irish and the Basques than to the various Johnny-Come-Latelys who turned up in the UK – Jutes, Angles, Saxons etc.

    Ultimately, yes, we’re just one great race called “Caucasian” but the group’s defining DNA type is found most strongest in western Ireland and then weakens as you head east through mainland Europe.

    Boring as that is, what it means is this: There’s no true racial difference between an Englishman and a Scot BUT The most “British” of the two is still the Scot/Irishman/Welshman or the Cumbrian Englishman….the more Celtic ancestry you have (and Celtic is just a cultural label) the more chance that your family has been here for far, far, far longer.

    But fuck it, who really cares? Everyone knows the Irish are the master race in the western world.

    3. They use up tit bits

    4. They are good company – NO! – don’t laugh – The Great Man himself enjoyed their company too!

    In contrast:

    The Grouniad Tendency

    1. Are thick as shit

    2. Do not go anywhere except when paid

    3. They only go on the best hols / hotels / and do not get on wiv life except on very narrow and highly ‘refined’ terms

    4. They do not taste good – if you doubt me, – fancy a mouthful of Mad Hat or Pol?

    5. They only frequent the best ‘foodie’ shops and pseudo-shitty restaurants

    6. They only have one understanding of tit-bits

    7. They are LOUSY company!

    That is a better reply than mine Albacore, which went by the by due to the modding. Anyway, the use of the exclamation mark is always a give-away: he’s a humourless chap who needs to lighten up.

    having watched the advert it sounds like something put together by a 6th form art student (sorry to 6th art students who could do better).

    Wating the public to provide you with free stories is very sad. I wonder how many free interns and work experience people the guardian really has at present.

    I bet the guardian next trixk will be to close the observer as they have never really liked it and replace it with a Sunday guardian instead.

    I am not a numbers man but how does this tally with the % fall or rise in sales of the paper?

    Bored of this shit says:

    The Guardian do pay their interns.

    Guido’s piece this week was about a two week work experience programme not an internship.

    They are two separate things and shouldn’t be confused.

    An internship is effectively on the job training, where both the employer and the intern gain something from the scheme. Which is why both Guido and the Guardian are right to pay their interns.

    Work experience is usually much shorter (in the case of the Graun it’s 2-3 weeks), and designed to give the person a bit of an insight/taster into a particular role or industry. In this case, the employer gains very little from the arrangement; the main benefit is felt by the person on the work experience.

    Guido is no doubt aware of this difference. But his writing relies on the failure of his below-the-line readers to make these distinctions or to critically analyse what he or his intern, Neo-Guido, write.

  142. 142

    Neo-Guido isn’t an intern. He is staff, well paid staff. No wonder he is the playboy of the blogosphere.

    Portsmouth City Council is the most corrupt council in the UK if not the world says:

    Robert Mugabe and Goodluck Johnathan. Brilliant Handy, get the Government to pay you to take in Immigrants, get your boys to build and house them with you providing the planning permissions, and get their rents paid by the council, killing many birds with one stone. Your boys launder their drug profits making millions in the process, you and your council cronies get backhanders and you get huge political donations. A genius scam, you remain our hero, we are all following your lead in Africa. Who else could have moulded politics, the public sector, and crime, all in the same package and make millions from it, brilliant. Boaz.

    Leftism is a mild mental disorder says:

    Yeah, I agree….One can laugh at the Guardian for thinking they give ‘the full picture’ on the world, because just like the people at the BBC they only tend to meet people like themselves, and so therefore genuinely believe, and because they are so out of touch their self importance makes me chuckle. As most BBC/public sector jobs that are advertised within newspapers appear in the employment section of the Guardian (making sure the ‘correct kind’ of people are found- lefties) it is harder to laugh at the BBC for peddling the same sort of nonsense. Mostly because it forces me to pay £145.50, under threat of jail, should I wish to have a colour television in my house. Lastly, the idea of sticking mock-ups of wolves and pigs (representative of ‘the man’ presumably) in the reception so as they finish their cycle ride or car-share journey from Islington, with only so much time for a granola bar, the staff walk past to be reminded of their lofty quest to jump on the next trendy bandwagon and keep the little people informed….is so unbelievably pompous and narcissistic I can barely believe it.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
