Indy Looking for ‘Augmented Reality’ Editor

According to the advert, “The Independent is seeking a digitally focused journalist with experience producing and presenting content for a daily news-driven augmented reality service”. Surely there is only one candidate.

    ‘Augmented reality’.

    Truly worthy of adding to such as ‘interpreting events’, ‘enhancing the narrative’ and ‘truthiness’, as pioneered, if uniquely, by others.

    Hari's incest porn says:

    Why wasn’t Hari made to answer for this?

    One thing Hari’s apology fails to mention – by no means the only thing, but an aspect of the grubby saga that has not received nearly the attention I think it merits – is the incest porn that was authored under the same pseudonym of David Rose, using an email address identified with Rose – an email address Rose admitted had been associated with pornographic material. Because this pornography isn’t just incest porn. It’s also racist in content.

    The story, titled “How my little brother learned to be a whore,” describes a black man who comes to be sexually involved with his younger brother. It contains multiple references to stereotypical black behaviours, with descriptions that no black person would ever write himself. To give but one example: “I sucked my teeth and muttered,” writes the protagonist (who is imaginatively named Leroy Jones).
