It has been 24 hours so I’ve decided to stop biting my tongue.
I really wanted to read the blog on The Birmingham Post’s site about the West Midlands Police and Channel 4 Dispatches debacle written by James Treadwell, criminologist at Birmingham City University.
But I kept getting stuck at the headline.
No, really. Scandle!
It has remained up there for 24 hours now.
Should I point this out on the Post’s blogs? Or, given some of the recent suggestions regarding my previous criticism of a Post blogger – namely that if I don’t like it I should simply stop reading it – should I just ignore it?
But then it all goes back to the crux of the newspapers and blogging issue for me.
So I decided to point it out, pedant that I am.
[Edit: The headline has now been changed.]
[Edit: According to urbandictionary.com, scandle refers to someone who “tries to be ‘cool’ at myspace but expodentially fails”. I’m not sure it fits with the Post blog.]
