Generally most stories I see that actually interest me I source from friends sharing on Twatter or, occasionally Facebluck. MSM covers kooky stories, disasters and feel good pulp.
We see the pressure that journalism and the media are under from governments around the world when journalists are jailed in countries like Egypt, or murdered, or silenced in various other ways. But it’s not until we get a global picture from something like the annual World Press Freedom Index that it becomes obvious how endangered a free press has become — even in the United States, which has fallen steadily in the media-freedom rankings every year.
If nothing else, this kind of overview reinforces one thing: Namely, the necessity and importance of having alternative forms of media and speech, whether it’s Twitter and YouTube and Instagram or a media entity like WikiLeaks. These can be blocked and content can be banned by governments, but it is harder to do. In effect, it forces repressive governments to play a giant game of Whack-A-Mole by going after every individual user who posts a photo or uploads a video.
Difficult to ban or block
Turkey, for example, has been trying very hard over the past year to get content removed from and/or blocked by Twitter — including an account belonging to an opposition newspaper — and the government’s court orders for personal information have skyrocketed. To Twitter’s credit, the company has resisted these orders, and is fighting others in court, and the social network remains a crucial lifeline for many citizens who are trying to keep track of what their government is doing to its own people.
Blue eye shadow? Is she fucking taking the piss? Total fashion violation.
I presumed with RTD returning to Tv with the bloody wonderful ‘Cucumber’ this would happen. And WOO HOO. Lets all just forget about the simply awful ‘Miracle Day’, get rid of the shit house American characters and get back to Wales. Or just England, just not America. AND ON TV AS WELL.
Broadchurch star Eve Myles has discussed the rumours about Torchwood returning for a number of new radio plays.
Torchwood co-star John Barrowman revealed the news last month, adding that there was a possibility it could lead to something on TV too.
Speaking exclusively to CultBox, Myles confirmed: “There’s been talks about it for a while, but I’ll believe it when it lands on the desk really, and I’ll see about it then. I certainly wouldn’t turn it down. Anything with Torchwood is something I’d love to do.”
Asked if she finds the show’s extended hiatus frustrating, Myles commented: “Well, I’ve kind of got past the frustration now. I think it’s more frustrating for the fans. It’s so damn popular, and the fans are still screaming for more, all over the world whenever I do signings and make appearances and talk about the show.”
The actress continued: “It’s as popular now as it’s ever been. That’s what’s frustrating about it. The fans want more, that’s the catalyst; that’s where the frustration comes from. The fan-base are the most loyal fan-base in the world, and have been since day one.”
She added: “So we’ll see what happens. If I get a call to come back, I’ll be there, and I’ll be doing it for the fans as well as Russell T Davies. I’d love to be able to put an announcement out tomorrow saying we got a Season 5, and that would be thanks to the fans, because they’ve not stopped plugging it for us.”
Fucking hate Davey Wavey, he is so much apart of the problem for young gays, be pretty and half naked or have no worth, but this rocks, apart from them being called ‘Seniors’, FFS they are just people who have lived more, age is irrelevant.
