There is probably no truth in the rumour…..
……..That post Leveson, the National Council for the Training of Journalists will be renamed The Walter Duranty Centre for Responsible Journalism, in order to fit in with the brave new world of journalism that the National Union of Journalists , the Labour Party, naïve tragedy victims and sleazy celebrities approve of.
Links for those who don’t know who Duranty was. Walter Duranty was a stain on journalistic history, and acted as a paid mouthpiece for Josef Stalin while Stalin was committing genocide. It is high time that the Pulitzer Prize committee changed their policy and removed Duranty’s prize.
