The Terrible Journalism Thread

Recommended Posts

Not sure what the BBC are aiming for here.

- Steven Thomson says he didn't follow women's football

- When he was paid to follow it, he did.

- To justify his free holiday to France at the taxpayers expense, Steven Thomson explains that through being paid to follow women's football, he now knows a little bit more about it than he did two years ago.

The Daily Record's desperate attempts to link any transfer story in their transfer blog to Scottish football can be pretty cringey sometimes.  Chelsea's Ola Aina joined Torino today and the Record refers to him as "One time Celtic target Ola Aina"

Surprised they never consulted the thoughts of a Jorge Cadete or a Michael Mols for input there.

Anything to sell papers eh? Only, it's not working. And, just when you thought that social media was the replacement, along come crackers like this:

I fully expect a three page interview with Marco Negri about Kilmarnock’s new manager.

I think it was the Record who, before Alessio's announcement was made official, had written about him and got the opinion of Massimo Donati - a man with no link to wither the candidate or the club in question - to give his tuppence worth. I can just imagine them thinking who is Italian and has played for the club before, coming up with Manuel Pascali and then immediately binning that idea because he had no connection to the OF.

In any case I'm just glad that our board managed to keep the media (and everyone else) guessing. Made the papers look like mugs.

Kind of reminds me of the time they got Sebastian Rozenthal to talk about the death of General Pinochet.

Why the need to mention he's a former "Rangers" striker?

Scotland, yes, because it acknowledges he was an international. But why pick out a former club in the headline as well?

Overly sensitive.

It was his most high profile and most successful period in his career both personally and in terms of trophies. It's pretty relevant.

It literally mentions the two clubs in Scotland that he ever played for. If it hadn't mentioned Killie then fair enough, but it does, front and centre.

Aye. A few times I've seen them refer to ex Rangers striker whilst he was at Killie but I don't see too much wrong with that article.

This is one of my major pet hates but have to agree with the others that it's appropriate this time. It's not the use of the ex-Ranger/ex-Celt that's the problem, it's the misuse.

That's them accepting a Yes vote next time IMO.
