Required reading, Nazism, etc.

SAD to see that UK Press Gazette is going monthly. As a weekly it was required reading for most journalists.

Don’t know if this particular feature is still running, but years ago they used to ask sub-editors to submit spoof headlines for historical events. One week the event in question was the burning of the Reichstag in 1933. The winning headline was: “Scorch! What a Fuhrer!”

Genius.

    I’m a bit surprised that they’re even bothering with a monthly version.
