It’s June, which means posting here is at a reasonably slower rate. That’s right, even slower than usual. But fear not, because now we’ve done something rather clever. Here’s a rant that we’ve spread over two posts, rather than one (the usual amount of space and time a rant is generally allowed to have).
This first part is part of a show broadcast in January on BBC4. It’s Newswipe with Charlie Brooker and in this clip mister Brooker himself introduces a colleague (well, they both work for The Guardian, so colleague is the best term) who will give her opinion on whether celebrities are always the best champions for good causes.
