The BBC News Website has changed its original headline:
SARAH PALIN LASHES OBAMA AT FIRST TEA PARTY CONVENTION
—bring your houseboy, and let’s party like it’s 1779!—to this one:
SARAH PALIN CONDEMNS OBAMA AT FIRST TEA PARTY CONVENTION
but, Liz Jones’s latest wibble—search for it if you like; I’m not going to link to it—retains its banner:
HONOUR KILLINGS? WHAT WE’VE DONE TO YOUNG EMMA [WATSON] IS JUST AS SHAMEFUL
Yes, she’s is referring to the highest earning actress in the World this year. According to Jones’s article, Hollywood’s paying Ms Watson fortunes to portray a “virginal schoolgirl” is in some way comparable to the Taleban throwing acid at girls who want to attend school in Afghanistan.
Where does Britain’s nuttiest columnist have left to go after this?
Related – The Daily Show had a go at OTT online headlines last week (skip to 5:10 – 4oD because Comedy Central don’t understand the internet).
Wow, she’s really far out there. This is pioneering journalism: opening up grand new vistas of nuttiness that others can then colonize. Liz should be lauded as a visionary.
“Where does Britain’s nuttiest columnist have left to go after this?”
Back to North Devon of course, where the locals have bad teeth and shoot holes in her letterbox when she tells them so.
