Weeknotes 2022.13

A few things I’ve been thinking about this week. The thirteenth post of a series.

Three years on, I still think this is a tabloid exposé or social media outrage just waiting to happen.

I caught a glimpse this week of Sky News’s 2019 election branding—“The Brexit Election”—and wondered whether, given all that has happened since, anyone there regrets giving their coverage a title with such a narrow focus. Though, it’s not like Sky were alone in concentrating on that single issue.

Given the major tests of the resulting Government in terms of competence on health and foreign affairs, I wonder if journalists generally feel like the election campaign coverage rigorously tested the parties on those issues.

Having to trudge to work through ice and snow on the day before the cold weather alert service closes for the year feels like cutting it fine.
