Journalism Daily: Candy Box billboards; Chicago Tribune’s new innovators; VentnorBlog reports Vestas

Journalism.co.uk is trialling a new service via the Editors’ Blog: a daily round-up of all the content published on the Journalism.co.uk site.

We hope you’ll find it useful as a quick digest of what’s gone on during the day (similar to our e-newsletter) and to check that you haven’t missed a posting.

We’ll be testing it out for a couple of weeks, so you can subscribe to the feed for the Journalism Daily here.

Let us know what you think – all feedback much appreciated.

The Candy Box fake news billboards: the pics and video

It’s had widespread coverage elsewhere, but Journalism.co.uk thought it worth contacting Horsham’s Candy Box owner, John O’Sullivan, for some images of those now nationally notorious fake news billboards, that the local council took such issue with (see Journalism.co.uk main site for an update.) Perhaps even better, is O’Sullivan’s lament on YouTube, inspired by the Anthony Hopkins Sky HD adverts. See end of this post for videos.

Here are some examples of the billboards (taken on O’Sullivan’s mobile phone):
