Is It Bird, Is It A Plane? No It Is Super-Blogger!

Star reporter Clark Kent, aka Superman, has sensationally quit the Daily Planet to set up his own blog. DC Comics have revealed that Superman is making the print-to-digital shift because he has “too much journalistic integrity” to carry on working for the newspaper. The saviour of the world says that he doesn’t want to become a “grizzled ink-stained wretch”, and has become disillusioned with the dead tree press because he “believes news should be about, I don’t know, news?”. Desperate colleagues attempted to convince him to stay but were forced to admit that “times are changing and print is a dying medium”.

Superman is tipped to “come into his own in the next few years as far as being a guy who takes to the internet and to the airwaves and starts speaking an unvarnished truth”.

Guido welcomes the competition…

    Bentwhistle says:

    My position is perfectly clear: I make it my business to know absolutely nothing about what goes on in the BBC. This means that I cannot be blamed for not acting on information that I do not have. It also clears my head for the more important questions of the day: dare I have an extra hobnob with my morning coffee?

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Of course, while he may actually be blogging in Metropolis, the business will be in Nevis as an asset-protection strategy should he ever be sued for libel, and he will claim to be a citizen of Krypton and not subject to any restraining orders. Of course, he has it a lot easier in the States so far as libel law goes. Still, better safe than sorry…

    People who claim to be able to fly, see through walls (and clothes?), and disrobe in telephone boxes need looking into very carefully.

    I am shocked to hear of this liaison with Wonder Woman but it is difficult for me to keep up with all these things.

    I always fancied doing her myself.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
