Gotcha! Corrections and Clarifications Time…

If only there was some form of statutory regulation to stop the unruly press from writing stories that are completely untrue:

All the Guardian’s many, many news and comment pieces yesterday will be corrected and clarified with due prominence, won’t they?

What about the BBC, which proclaimed “it was the feminists wot won it” and put the unconfirmed story, described by a Sun spokesman as “wild speculation”, in the main headlines on the News at Six and the News at Ten?

And there was this latest great Labour social media success:

Not to mention the premature celebrations from the less popular parts of the internet:

The greatest trick the Sun ever pulled was convincing the world Page 3 didn’t exist…

BREAKING: Threedom! Page 3 Back in The Sun Tomorrow

All that ink spilt in vain, Page 3 never went away. Back in The Sun tomorrow, you can see Nicole, 22 here.

Looks like the Guardian, BBC and Times have boobed…

UPDATE:

BBC‘s Patronising Page 3 Coverage

BBC News at Six decided speculation about Page 3 was more important than ISIS, the NHS strike and even the death of Corrie’s Diedre last night. Lucy Manning went a bit Emily Thornberry as she “went to a building site to ask some of the Sun’s readers” what they thought, being more than a little patronising as she waved a copy of the paper at them. Meanwhile, Have I Got News for You’s charming dig at the unemployed doesn’t really work since the models have been given year-long contracts:

And how did the BBC website describe Samantha Fox? Striking a blow for the sisterhood by dubbing her “Fox, with her big hair and personality”, also quoting an excitable Roy Greenslade: “cheeky and pretty and lovely”. Sneering metropolitan liberals.

Page Threedom

threedom

A few months ago Guido had dinner with the editor of The Sun David Dinsmore and asked him about Page 3. His view was that as long as the market research said his readers wanted it, The Sun would run it. Has the research changed or has the No More Page 3 campaign’s success in gaining support from the likes of the Girl Guides risked making the brand anathema to 51% of the population? Guido suspects the reasoning – if indeed it is actually the case that Page 3 has been discontinued – is a mixture of both.

Ending Page 3 would give a victory not just to people who never buy the newspaper, it would give a victory to people who would rather Britain’s most popular paper didn’t exist. Laurie Penny, the former stripper turned left-wing feminist pundit, summarises that view succinctly:

Mind you, the quality of Laurie’s media analysis is revealed in this tweet:

She appears to think newspapers can have an odd number of pages…

UPDATE: You can see today’s actual Sun page 3 here. Note well the bottom of the page…
