Vodafone, however, says this is incorrect, and that when my contract is taken over, the 50% deal would cease to apply. Continue reading...

Press standards: the vital bond of trust that journalists have to win back | Jane Martinson

Amid the shock and grief of the Manchester Arena attack one local paper got it right. This is whySarah Lester was at home with her young family when the night news editor called to say that a loud noise had been heard at the Manchester Arena. Some were saying it was a blast, others that it was part of that night’s Ariana Grande show. “There was a lot of chatter on Twitter,” said Lester, senior editor of the Manchester Evening News, who worked for most of the next 72 hours.A few hours after the bomb went off at the end of the concert, and long before the emergency response service was up and running, social media users were being urged to look to Lester and her team for the truth. “I recommend you follow MEN newsdesk to get FACTS from the people who are there,” tweeted talkradio host Iain Lee. Others in New York and South Africa said the same.While the media were widely condemned for their response to the Manchester bombing by last week’s review by the former head of the civil service Bob Kerslake – along with the fire service and Vodafone’s National Mutual Aid Telephony service – the 150-year-old local newspaper was singled out for praise. Not just by Kerslake’s panel but by the bereaved families and other victims. “Our local paper … they’ve been amazing,” one told the review. Continue reading...
