God Jul

December 3, 2007/11.06

Christmas is set to be glamorous over at Hennes & Mauritz: we preview some of the Swedish retailer’s offerings for the season.

/5.18

[Cross-posted] I spotted the below on Ninemsn today and thought, ‘Poor Brian.’    I clicked on the ?rst link and found quite the opposite:    It’s not as embarrassing as the network, and the Murdoch Press, reporting on the Miranda Kerr incident two years late and getting the venue wrong, but it’s still an about-face.    Netizens will […]

San Francisco Chronicle reports Miranda Kerr–Paris Hilton incident

November 29, 2007/12.11

Fascinating: after our post exposing the Miranda Kerr v. Paris Hilton incident at Victoria’s Secret to be false—or at least ridiculously inaccurate, with media outlets getting the year and the venue wrong—the Chronicle’s SFGate.com still reported it. It has taken the post down now, but not before Google News found it:      Yes, we are […]

Murdoch Press claims Sophie Anderton offered sex, drugs

November 24, 2007/23.52

The Murdoch Press, using an undercover reporter who almost goes under cover, reports that Sophie Anderton has resorted to vice (use your imagination) to help fund a property in Notting Hill. There’ll be enough moralists lecturing Ms Anderton on what is right and wrong but let me say one thing about the modelling industry: this sort […]
