HuffPo’s Carla Boobs

Back in September the Huffington Post’s UK editor Carla Buzasi took to her website’s comment pages to issue a rallying call against writing about women’s bodies:

“The fascination with bodies, celebrity or otherwise, isn’t exactly something new, of course, and shows no sign of abating. But here’s a thought: why don’t we just stop?”

That must be why today her website has launched a new theme called “Breast is Best” based on the concept of ‘Photoboobing‘. Or in other-words – funny pictures of titties:

Apparently the cutting edge of online journalism, that claims to adhere to the PCC code and campaigns rigorously for right-on “wimmins issues” is hoping to bring it’s readers the “best boob discovery moments ever documented.” Remember that the next time their writers are bleating about Page 3.

    I will get my tits out for a million dollars. Follow the money. says:

    The huff po comes across as a very mixed up media outlet in deed. Suffice to remember that page 3 will remain because it is part of a multi billion dollar industry which is sanitised to keep the punters in the dark about the true nature of female exploitation. The whole murky industry is upheld under the guise of upholding freedom and choices campaigns. It is laughable how many punters buy into this so called democratic argument without even considering the true nature of the murky world of this industry which is a far cry from choices and freedoms for many of the women involved. We will never learn about such abuses because we are constantly fed a sanitised and democratic agenda to be protected at all costs.

    mmm only a caption competion and Richard and Mark and you can accuse Huff po of plagarism .

    Whilst Fraser Nelson has said a few remarkable things today , the paralell story that caught my eye in telegraph was from Andrew Gilligan who had resigned in protest from the NUJ , now the NUJ used to be must have , aspect of being a journalist , for helping with those more tricky moments in reporting and a bit of a club . Why , well it seems as though the NUJ has come out in favour of Levenson type regulation , not only that but no request from NUJ members was sought (which is all the more odd when you think about it) on what stance the NUJ should take , no debate , no meeting for journalists on a matter directly to with their profession ….. The front page was not held …

    In case you just thought Rotherham was untroubled for Labour and Tom Watson wasnt in a flap , Ive read one report , where the council finance chief has been suspended and another that the NHS chief has resigned , whilst finance troubles for Rotherham NHS are materialising .

    MPs have been treated to Amazon telling them they have found some £7bn of secret sales … being as they are internet based , “they were in a shoe box and fell down the back of the filing cabinet ,where we found them while hoovering the office ” hardly bears thinking about ..

    mmmm Greece gets 40bn eu written off (someones money I suppose) so it can get 44bn eu in bailout loans , the rest of deal sounded like longer to pay at a lower rate . portugal however passed as sort of stable and Spain has entered its banking merger phase of credit meeting debt in some sort of matter /anti mattter mixing chamber , not heard about Cyprus .

    I’m sick of the bleating of journalists about Leveson. It was the Guardian that started this whole mess off backed by the BBC. Anyone who has seen the whinging coming from Mirror Hack Susie Boniface (AKA Fleetstreetfox) about Leveson and ‘Dishface’ (her name for Cameron ho ho ho very funny) is enough to make you sick (she’s the one who went through Cameron’s bins to dig out the nappies from his now dead son because she wanted to prove that he wasn’t using environmentally friendly nappies) yet she forgets Cameron is the only leader sticking up for the press, her beloved Ed Miliband (someone she gushes over) wants to fuck her trade up yet if you read her blog there isn’t one bad word about him.

    I’m going to piss myself laughing if Cameron is forced to regulate the press, the blame won’t be with him, but the Guardian, BBC and the Labour party.

      Very good point. Making prostitution socially acceptable, removing stigma, and state regulating with a focus on protection and health of the workers would be a much more progressive way to approach one of the currently more inconvenient realities of life, rather than false deal the likes of Harman promote. It would be even better if women were not forced down this path though as a result of gross mismanagement of the economy though.

          If you ask a competent local taxi drіver to take you to New Street, he will offer you the option of setting you down on the edge of the labyrinth to complete the journey on foot.

          Moor Street and Snow Hill, the Chiltern Line stations, are both a very short way from New Street on foot, but not of course if you are disabled or old or carrying heavy luggage.

    One-term Dave, dragging the Tories to their grave, says:

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
