First topic message reminder :

So it's up to you to decide what stories and articles go into this weeks copy.

Do you think you would be a good editor, fair and balanced, hard hitting and radical, more red top or broadsheet??

Your decisions this week could influence millions. Cool

He can fill his own threads with his hateful dialogue, when he starts trying to fill mine with his nastiness I will tell him.

What he has also shown in this thread is, he has a very over inflated opinion of himself.

We are all different, so this isn’t a dig, but I HATE that kind of publication.  

It’s everything I don’t want my daughter to look at.

Back on topic....

I would like to address this point again, I think it's interesting. .

Eddie, don't you think magazines, especially ones designed for women, would be good if they published only natural untouched up photo's of celebs, fashion, makeup models etc.

Magazines, especially nowadays, are filled with unattainable images of 'perfect' looking people. Not a line or a blemish, they present a totally unatainable look that no one can achieve. Even ordinary people now photoshop their own images before they post them online.
This image of false beauty is brainwashing people so much,  many of them are now walking round with identical inflated rubber faces and bodies....and God knows what's happening to their mental image of themselves.

Nah, she's moved all over. She spent a good amount of time in Colorado, where she went to university.

You went to university in Colorado? I thought you said you went to Fr. Worth Jr. College?

Nup...but I did have a high school mate that moved to Georgia.  We haven't kept in touch.

You said you were an orphan.  At what age did you move to Texas? You never attended any college?

I was adopted at birth, so I really wasn't an orphan.

I was 13 when I moved to Texas.

I attended college in Arlington. Part of that insipid UT system.

So your Texan daughter has no kids?

Seems like a thing these days.

Arlington, eh? No wonder you have the A&M mascot as your addy...Arlington was in the A&M system prior to 1965, when it joined up with the University of Texas system.

Where did you live prior to Texas?

A & M is a good school.  I have connections with their law school.

I lived in Pennsylvania for a few years, but it was in the north Philadelphia region.  A far cry from Allegheny County.  Anyway, it made me an A's fan, and I still am today.  Twisted Evil

So you would turn it from a newspaper into a tawdry scandal rag, full of bullshit from over opinionated writers, who don't give a damn about the truth of the news, just their warped and weird take on it.
Don't we have enough of them in Britain already?

Question is would you use the likes of Owen Jones or Katie Hopkins?

Who said it would be tawdry? Who says the people writing don’t give a damn about the truth? Who says an honest piece of writing has to be over-opinionated?

Wow. You have some very bitter thoughts against people writing their opinions...

Is that why you joined a forum?
