|Why does the news have to be so graphic?|
at 13:28 9 Mar 2017
I’m not easily shocked or a prude or someone who gets offended at the drop of the hat. But why does the news (on all sides) have to be so graphic? Using CCTV or privately shot film of terrorists in the middle of shooting innocent civilians. Or showing mothers hugging their dead children who were murdered in Africa.
I don’t understand why the news have to be so sensational – yes, attitudes have previously been changed due to shock-tactics but showing dead bodies simply to enhance the story seems wrong to me. Just wondered what others felt.

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good pram/ baby friendly restaurant in Ipswich for a late lunch on a weekend?
not really fussed on type of food as long as its good.
|‘The Sellout’ by Paul Beatty |

Hi, I’m about to finish ‘The Sellout’ by Paul Beatty and wondered what people thoughts were about it? Personally I found it quite difficult to read and at times (well often) I just felt that large chunks of it read like a rant.
In parts funny and an interesting plot idea but I found it to be a bit of a disappointment.
