Journalism Warning Labels

Isn’t it strange that the media carefully label any content that involves sex, violence or strong language but there’s no labelling system for wacky journalism and other questionable content? (like this blogpost :-)
Geek comedian Tom Scott designed a solution for this. He made a sticker template which is downloadable at his website. It’s up to you where to put them.

    The sticker design is going round the internet very fast. Tom Scott who designed the stickers is very pleased with translations. I already did the Dutch version, and Portugese, Polish and Swedish are now also available.

    Excellent idea, we should apply this on venezuela’n newspapers… journalism is awful lately.

    This is a good idea but if you go around slapping these on newspapers you don’t own, make sure to place them so they don’t obscure the text. Obscuring the text itself would be a form of censorship.

    Although it may affect only one reader per sticker, I don’t know what’s worse: an article that offends intelligence or a reader who misappropriates such a sticker simply because they don’t like an article.
