Tabloid Hysteria Over Climate Change And More Dead Trees

CLIMATE Change is big news. It’s big news at the Daily Express, where climate change hype is met by ant- climate change hype. MacGuffin investigates:

THE Daily Express doesn’t believe in climate change. This front page from last week made that clear. The quote marks around fraud show it is a quote from someone else but the phrasing makes it clear the, ahem, ‘world’s greatest newspaper’ is of the same mind.

That was emphasised again on Tuesday 8 December when their Environment Editor’s feeble article about Copenhagen was given the headline A load of hot air!

Gordon Brown Chops Down And Plugs In A Tree For Climate Change

ON the day Gordon Brown built up the heat in readiness to fly off to Copenhagen to talk about climate change –

“This perhaps the greatest challenge we face as a world and this is the turning point that can either work for us or it can fail – This is one of the great endeavours of our time – to bring the world together to deal with the problem that has been caused essentially by the richest countries but is now affecting some of the poorest countries in the world. If we do not act, all of us are going to be worse off” –

His wife stood outside his house beside a gigantic chopped-down tree covered in lights. Bah humbug!

Adam Lambert On The Early Show, In Pictures

lambert-noshADAM Lambert is last season’s runner up on American Idol. At the American Music Awards, Lambert’s music took in a rubbing a dancer’s face into his crotch. If it helps him hit the low notes, so be it.

He then got off with a male band member and stuck his finger up in the air. Lots of people tuned in, 1,500 complained and Lambert is no longer a lump of reality TV dross – Lambert is edgy and challenging and turning telly viewers gay.

Lambert then went on GMA stands for ‘Gays Made America’. But he didn’t – his performance was cancelled. Do instead he stuck his gayness of The Early Show, and families tuning in got to see a pretty ordinary signer with dyed hair – think Jess Conrad meets The Producer’s Hitler – sing a song.

The X Factor’s Jedward Will Kill Us All Says Climate Change Expert

greenshirts2WANT to know how the X Factor could bring about not only war with China but the end of the entire planet? Writing in the Irish Times, John Gibbons tells you:

Time to discard our delusions and get real

Shows like the X Factor fuel the fantasy that anyone could, if they tried hard enough, be the next big thing. Positive thinking sounds innocuous, even benign, but it differs from cheerfulness or normal optimism in that it often extends to believing that the world is shaped by our wants and desires, and that these can be willed, genie-like, into existence.

Stick with it:

In Generation Me, psychologist Jean Twenge points out that “we simply take it for granted that we should all feel good about ourselves, we are all special and we all deserve to follow our dreams”. Over the last 25 years, international studies have tracked a strong rise in narcissistic belief among young people.

X Factor: Dermot O’Leary Wants Joe McElderry Locked Up

dermot-john-and-edwardREAD X Factor presenter Dermot O’Leary’s news column in the News of The World:

“The X Files – Dermot O’Leary’s brand new column reveals why John & Ed are still in it”

It’s Dermot ‘literally’ O’Leary right here on this page, literally. Dermot O’Leary, people. Coming right up. Literally. Any moment now…

Dermot O’Leary will be right here on the Anorak pages, literally, here…

Well, they did it. They defied the odds, they beat the boos and they rode roughshod over everyone’s expectations to make it through the first week unscathed.

They took the knocks, rode the wave, hit the highs, trawled the lows and literally scaled the scales. It’s John and Edward, Ireland’s late-developing answer to The Proclaimers, and the answer to the question ‘What’s more annoying than the Proclaimers’?

Katie Price And Peter Andre In Slash Horror

katie-peter1MORE Peter Andre and Katie Price news as amid a fight at the Mayfair Hotel, bookmakers slash the odds of the pair reunited their camera crews and giving it one more shot.

Ladbrokes has reduced the odds of a Peter Andre-Katie Price re-renewal of vows (they renewed their vows on a TV show having made their original vows before God and OK!) from 100/1 to 4/1.

Whether he bookmakers would take money from Katie or Peter’s PR camps is a moot point. The odds are one thing, the size of the betting market another. A wager of anything over a pound might be turned down by the bookmakers, suspicious of fixing.

One day on from news of a reconciliation, Peter Andre, along with Mel B, her husband Stephen Belafonte, Chantelle Houghton and Nicola McLean are dining with Katie’s former agent Claire Powell at the Mayfair Hotel. That’s them bathed in an orangey glow sat before plates covered in hand-reared breast meat.

Now You Can Buy The David Beckham Condom

beckham-condomDAVID Beckham’s sleepy face is to feature on condom packets on sale Madrid’s Thyssen-Bornemisza museum shop.

It’s not a tacky stunt – it’s art, possibly modern art. It’s also a chance to look at Day-vid while you blow up two johnnies and tie them to a broom handle version of Her Poshness.

All condom packet designs are taken from the gallery’s Tears of Eros exhibition later this month, a name that sounds like a euphemism or the name of a Zurich swingers club.

Dirty Sanchez Star Matthew Pritchard Stab Pictures

matt-pritchard-knifeDIRTY Sanchez star Matthew Pritchard has been stabbed in the neck and back. But where else was he stabbed?

PA: “Matthew Pritchard was with his girlfriend when he intervened in a row in a shop on Monday.”

The Sun: “Dirty Sanchez star stabbed in Co-Op

Daily Mai
l: “Matthew Pritchard, 36, was with his girlfriend in Budgens at Toftwood, Dereham yesterday, when he intervened in a row between two fellow shoppers.”

Want more facts? Says the TV star:

“I went into the shop with my missus, and this guy was in there. He was having a go at the staff and saying: ‘I’ve been in the scouts prison for two years, what are you asking me for ID for?’ He was getting really out of hand and by this time I was fuming because there were kids in the shop and it’s not right.

“He was effing and blinding. It was disgusting.”

Says the man who appears on a TV show named after a sexual act that involves wiping a line of poo under your lover’s nose.

I said ‘don’t you speak to women and children like that’ and pushed him out. He saw me coming towards him and I saw him get this knife out and he slashed me down the neck. I thought ‘Oh my God, he’s stabbed me’. My missus saw me and was screaming. People in the shop gave me a towel to put pressure on my neck. The blood started coming through that.

“I thought I was about to go to sleep at any point. I was telling my missus to tell my mum I love her.”

As ever, Twitter does the PR and Pritchard, a minor star on minor telly show on a minor telly channel makes the most of his moment in the limelight…

Diane Kruger ‘s Laughs It Up

Diane Kruger, who stars opposite Brad Pitt in Inglorious Basterds, is in conversation with OK!:

“I’m on time even when I try not to be. I’m German. I’m responsible. I’m neat. I iron my tablecloths.”

Bing a typical German, when she’s in Mallorca she naturally irons her condoms.

Missy Ga-Ga-Gates

OK! catches up with Gareth Gates, Suzanne Mole and their daughter Missy, who was born in April and “very well behaved”.

Gareth and Suzanne are “introducing Missy to the world”, which to her eyes looks like an OK! hacks with a syrup-leaded pencil and a photographer. And there’s the sound of mum talking about Missy’s birth:

“It was so easy. We decided to go for a Caesarean… I had a new procedure called a natural section… instead of being cut open, and having the baby pulled out, they find the head first and then bring it out.”

Or your stomach. Hence “natural section”.
