The sort of front page you only get to lay out once in your lifetime. Thank God.
.@ChtyCommission is “now considering whether it is appropriate to use our regulatory powers” in the forever war between @ChCh_Oxford & @MartynPercy If that doesn't get the parties round the table to settle it ASAP...@TurbPriestOxon thetimes.co.uk/article/c246ab…

Anti-vaxxers and anti-lockdowners don’t listen to MSM lies. They do their own research. Which is why they end up protesting against the BBC at a building the BBC left 8 years ago. twitter.com/disclosetv/sta…

Rather than using today's IPCC report as the trigger for one day's headlines I'd prefer editors and reporters to digest today's study and then use it as the basis for their journalism the other 364 days, and relate all issues to what we hear today.

Today's report from @IPCC_CH provides the most updated understanding of #climatechange. Here are a few links on how audiences get their news about this topic and how journalists can cover it 1. The best place to start is this #DNR20 chapter by @simgandi digitalnewsreport.org/survey/2020/ho…

I've posted my rather long response to the original proposals to criminalise forms of whistleblowing and journalism in the UK. It's a bad, bad thing to strip those accused the chance to argue a public interest defence. Here's why: medium.com/@arusbridger/w…
So happy to see the finals results of the first two @lmhoxford foundation year cohorts to graduate. Tally so far is two firsts; ten 2:1s and a 2:2. 5 students went on to achieve good degrees elsewhere. Huge credit to the students - some pictured here.
On the one hand, Boris Johnson’s government extolls the virtues of a free press. On the other, it’s clamping down on media freedoms by threatening journalists who write stories it finds “embarrassing” with 14 years imprisonment.@kennardmatt @PeterKGeoghegan @Snowden @arusbridger twitter.com/Ian_Fraser/sta…

It beggars believe that a government led by a former journalist is proposing laws to criminalise journalism. By me for the Mail on Sunday. dailymail.co.uk/debate/article…

Punch Sulzberger, Katherine Graham (and I) would have all faced jail under ⁦the sort of laws ⁦@pritipatel⁩ wants for criminalising journalism. I thought Boris Johnson believed in a free press? theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

A great double byline in today’s Guardian. But which is which ?
