Tab Wins $6 Million Funding

Popular student website The Tab has received another $6 million worth of backing in an investment round led by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. It’s a hugely deserved success for Jack Rivlin and Joshi Herrmann, whose rowdy reporting and network of wannabe hacks have disrupted the old student media establishment first in the UK and then Stateside. The loss making site’s growth has now been funded to the tune of $10 million by venture capital… 

The Tab and its sister site babe have local editions at 80 universities in the UK and US, its young hacks get a proper grounding in breaking real stories and Fleet Street is now awash with old Tabs. Not hard to see why they have caught Rupert and Rebekah’s eye, indeed even Guido has a Cambridge Tab alumnus on the reporting staff…

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
