RT @leannuh_renay: The goth chick from Breakfast Club was hotter before Molly Ringwald gave her a makeover don’t @ me.
@alasdair_clark @garydunion The Wire season 5 is the best illustration of that :)
@alasdair_clark @garydunion It’s sad. I remember saying ‘I’m a journalist - I was taught to never make stories up’. Inevitably, a lot of folk just laugh at that.
@garydunion ugh hate all that patter. Had this in the summer when I reported something I witnessed on the day of the orange march in Glasgow. My girlfriend witnessed too - some even demanded I get her to back up my story, as if she was fair game for abuse too. Vile.

What was your first job as a journalist?

It was a work placement at my local newspaper. I sent them a letter asking if I could come in once a week to count as a school "subject".

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Not that I can recall.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Zoe Barnes. Not that I approve of her methods of course...
