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…

    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?

    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…

    I find Superman an offensive and sexist character. He should be called Superperson.

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

    Perhaps we need another judge led enquiry.

    This is dreadful news.

    What will happen to office romance? Getting into costume in the elevator? Mentoring the cub reporter?

      Never did I think my two worlds of Geekdom & Political interest would collide.

      And that Office Romance is so last Century; Superman is dating Wonder Woman now, do please keep up.

        Mister Mxyztplk says:

        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.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
