Journalism Warning Labels
Contents Not VerifiedIt seems a bit strange to me that the media carefully warn about and label any content that involves sex, violence or strong language — but there's no similar labelling system for, say, sloppy journalism and other questionable content.
I figured it was time to fix that, so I made some stickers. I've been putting them on copies of the free papers that I find on the London Underground. You might want to as well.
I'm not sure how these newspapers would fill their pages without these.
Make your own!
For the UKIf you'd like your own set, grab an A4 13-by-5 sheet of stickers (they're labelled as '65 per sheet' or Avery L7651), and print out this PDF template.
For the USIf you're in America, then Scott has kindly put together a US version that fits on Avery's Letter-size 5160 labels or equivalent.
Around the worldNewscrud by Eric Donovan lets you apply similar stickers to web sites.
They've also been translated into several languages. I've not been able to independently verify translations: in some cases, jokes and references may change across cultures; the translators may also have added their own views. These jokes are not necessarily mine.
