Journalisted Weekly: Riots, Premier League kick-off, and continuing debt crises

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.

for the week ending Sunday 14 August

  • This week’s undisputed lead story was the rioting across England
  • New Premier League season, US and Eurozone debt crises, and Syrian fighting covered lots
