Guardian editor spotted at Guardian Masterclass on making money from journalism

THE editor of the Guardian has attended a Guardian-run ‘masterclass’ explaining how to make money from journalism.

Katharine Viner was seen frantically scribbling notes at the two-day course, which was delivered by a teenage fashion blogger whose income is several times higher than that of the entire Guardian Media Group. It included modules on blogging, pitching to editors and making industry contacts.

Fellow attendee Mary Fisher said: “She was completely engrossed and asked some good questions about networking skills and how to get Google Ads on your blog.

“I saw some of her doodles too – there was a sad face, a heart emblazoned with ‘I love news’ and a sketch of Alan Rusbridger with crosses for eyes.”

At the end of the class, participants were greeted by Owen Jones and Polly Toynbee rattling charity buckets.

Go f**k yourselves, say experts who pointed out link between populism and war

EXPERTS who stressed the historic link between populism and the threat of war have told everyone to go fuck themselves.

As Britain raised the prospect of a war with Spain and Donald Trump set out his desire to annihilate North Korea, experts said they were ‘just so incredibly surprised’.

Julian Cook, author of Wars and How They Happen, said: “Every day for the last two years I have told anyone who will listen that populists really love the idea of war.

“And every fucking day all these arseholes were like, ‘what do you know, you so-called expert?’.

“No, you’re right, you’re all geniuses and I’ve only been studying this for 30 fucking years. You can all shit off.”

Meanwhile, foreign secretary Boris Johnson has insisted that ‘War with Spain’ was written on the side of his bicycle during the Brexit campaign.

He added: “The letters had to be very small to fit on the crossbar of my Grifter.”
