"I started it because I'm a big softie and can't bear the thought of people being alone on Christmas Day," Millican wrote in an article in the Standard Issue magazine. "This is for those who don't choose to be alone, but who are, for some reason, on their tod/bob/lonesome. Be it because they have no family, are estranged from their family, it's not their turn to have the kids, even just that their partner is at work, whatever. Alone and would rather not be," she added. As an example, Millican said she likes to post about what she's watching on the television, so other users can do the same and have a discussion on the program that's running. But Twitter users poured in with all kinds of ideas. There were those who posted pictures of their pets, including friends of Millicans' like Scottish comedian Susan Calman: Millican herself joined in with a picture of her cat, as well as announcing her dog's impending walk: Many users posted pictures of food, reminding themselves of how fun … [Read more...] about Just #JoinIn if you’re feeling lonely at Christmas
The article from the "Wings of China" in-flight magazine was first brought to the public's attention on Wednesday by CNBC producer Haze Fan, who tweeted an image of the magazine to London Mayor Sadiq Khan, asking him what he thought about the comments. A spokesman for Khan said the mayor's office was drafting a statement in response to article. The text at the center of the controversy reads: "London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people." The magazine also advises visitors to not "go out alone at night" and for women "always to be accompanied by another person when traveling." Two London MPs have since urged China's ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, to issue an apology to their constituencies. Labour Party MP Vivendra Sharma said he was "shocked and appalled that even today some people would see it as acceptable to write such a blatantly untrue and racist statement." Some … [Read more...] about Air China in-flight magazine sparks outcry over ‘racist’ guide to London
The German Press Council is a voluntary self-regulatory organization for German newspapers, magazines and online media. It monitors compliance with a 16-point press code. If it is infringed, the Press Council may issue a public or private reprimand. DW spoke with journalist Manfred Protze, spokesperson for the council, to discuss Bild's controversial coverage of the G20 Summit. DW: Under the headline "Wanted! Who knows these G20 criminals?" the German tabloid Bild published pictures of people protesting during the G20 summit without obscuring their faces. Manfred Protze, is it legal for a medium to hunt down alleged perpetrators that way? Manfred Protze: Bild was dealing with the public conduct of people in a context of events that were absolutely of public interest. They were not isolated people in isolated acts; they were connected to a larger event. And a medium can of course report about such events. Every participant of a demonstration - even peaceful ones - must accept … [Read more...] about G20 summit coverage: Can a newspaper issue its own manhunt?
