Articles

With fifty years as a journalist, volunteer and priest, I published a variety of feature articles. During my time as a broadcaster and charity fundraiser, some of my activities have hit the news stands.  So, I also include articles that other journalists have written about me.

Journalism

If you are a practising journalist, media studies student or just wanting to get your story into the public domain, you will find my professional website of interest.

It contains a wide range of useful articles, including an essay on Fake News which I’m currently expanding to include the threat it poses to free debate.  I’ve recently updated a comprehensive article on News Values – first compiled in 1999 – which discusses how journalists decide which news stories to publish.  or broadcast media.  My website also contains a range of useful media tips for those wanting to work in the changing world of news journalism.
