So what’s hot, and what’s not, in the past week’s blogging? Here are the six most popular posts on Zelo Street for the past seven days, counting down in reverse order, because, well, I’m off out later. So there.
6 Mail Teenager Trashing Hits Rock Bottom Following their vindictive pursuit of Rory Weal and Elly Nowell, the Mail was now going after Paris Brown, whose Twitter feed was splashed all over the front page of the Mail On Sunday. The Dacre doggies are developing a creepy habit of pursuing teenagers.
5 So Farewell Then Mrs T Margaret Thatcher died on Monday. She commanded respect and made a difference, but remained a polarising figure for years after leaving office.
4 Gilligan Goes Goofing Again The Hacked Off campaign wrote to the Telegraph to correct the goofs of Andrew “Transcription Error” Gilligan. The paper did not respond, but gave the letter to Gilligan for him to lay into them again. Badly.
3 Diana Leftist No Hijack Horror The Mail made a number of accusations about what happened to the Diana, Princess of Wales fund of late. Here’s why this was just another pack of lies (no change there, then).
2 How The Mail Lured Paris Brown The Mail did a photoshoot with her. Then it set up a chat with one of its hacks. And then it deliberately destroyed her name in the name of selling a few more papers. Some call that kind of thing sickening. But to Russell Myers, there’s no problem pursuing and trashing teenagers.
1 Gilligan’s Hacked Off Goof Second week topping the chart! Andrew “Transcription Error” Gilligan’s amateurish attack on the Hacked Off campaign was given a good fisking. Real fish in a barrel stuff.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
