Tara Hamilton Miller‘s article ‘How cool are David Cameron’s Conservatives?’ has attracted criticism around the web, particularly from Hopi Sen. However, the comment section of the article itself was particularly critical.

Picked Politics criticises the coverage of the ‘most popular names’ story which reported (again) the growing popularity of Muhammad and its variations.

The Guardian reports a judge in Portugal has banned sales of a book about Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

  • John Horgan‘s comments: Journalism needs regulation like the Titanic needed deck chairs

Tim Ireland disputes Julie Moult’s understanding of Twitter after an article suggested Sarah Brown was given the cold shoulder by Demi Moore on Twitter.
