Introducing SH!T WATCH: Our eye on the media.

Welcome to SH!T WATCH, a brand new weekly segment that’s getting back to the heart of what this blog is all about: calling bullshit on various things – particularly the media. So what’s been on our radar lately?

Shout-out to popular women’s website Mamamia who this week decided to start branding year-old memes with their own logo:

Just thought we better pass it on.

Also quick question regarding PEDESTRIAN “Turn down for what” TV – is this an office in-joke? Was the intern in charge of social media this week? Or did you really not realise you posted the same status sell three times in the space of a day or two?

Turn down for…originality?

The Daily Telegraph stayed true to it’s notoriously shitty form, by not only sending photographers to greet a grieving man who’d just lost his twin brother, and publishing them for the world to see – but also failing to exercise even the most basic editorial abilities:BuPnkI-CcAE2mWeAlso there’s this gem, which…points for sheer absurdity, we guess?

Bloody Gillard’s reign of terror is never going to end, is it?

And just when you thought it was only celebrity and entertainment websites that were notorious for the elusive status updates, music sites like AMH and Music Feeds decided to keep the punters guessing (and clicking) with their Soundwave 2015 clickbait.
