Journalism Warning Labels
A UK comedian has created a series of content warning stickers to make newspaper reading safer.
UK Comedian Tom Scott noticed that the media typically issues warnings for content that includes the topics of sex, violence or strong language. He’s designed a sticker sheet that includes even more warnings for things like articles copied from press releases, unverified anonymous sources, and opinions masked as news. His aim with the stickers is to make newspaper reading safer. He’s been putting the stickers on copies of the free newspapers in London subway stations as a public service.
