Journalisted Weekly: Fuel panic, Cruddas and Galloway

April 4th, 2012Posted by in Journalism

Journalisted is an independent, not-for-profit website built to make it easier for you, the public, to find out more about journalists and what they write about. It is run by the Media Standards Trust, a registered charity set up to foster high standards in news on behalf of the public, and funded by donations from charitable foundations. Each week Journalisted produces a summary of the most covered news stories, most active journalists and those topics falling off the news agenda, using its database of UK journalists and news sources.

 

Fuel panic, Cruddas and Galloway

For the week ending Sunday 1 April.

  • Fuel panic dominated the headlines
  • Peter Cruddas’ resignation over the donor scandal, and George Galloway’s surprise by-election victory covered lots
  • A major report on last summer’s riots, Spain’s most austere budget since the 1970s, and the final changes to the legal aid bill covered little

The Media Standards Trust, which runs journalisted, won the ‘One to Watch’ category at the Prospect Think Tank Awards
