50 Shades announcement triggers journalistic copy and paste frenzy
JOURNALISTS are frantically copying and pasting from Wikipedia following the announcement of the lead actors in 50 Shades of Grey.
Tabloid ‘showbiz’ editor Julian Cook said: “I’ve pretty much worn out the ‘C’ and ‘V’ keys on my keyboard as I race against deadline to lift enough biographical data from Charlie Hunnam’s Wikipedia page.”
Journalist Emma Bradford said: “I pasted Dakota Fanning’s Wikipedia in one big chunk, including the picture. Then I added the headline ‘Young actress embarks on erotic journey’.”
“After that I went for a fag.”
