“Narrative tension is primarily about….” A fascinating interview with the spiffing Ian McEwan in the New Yorker. It is very long though.

“This looks like another case where the news media opted for making an emotional connection with their audience rather than enlightening anybody, where emoting took precedence over analysing important events or explaining the world – a symptom of the trends in journalism which some of us have criticised for more than decade.” Mick Hume at Sp!ked on the press coverage of the sad death of Ivan Cameron.
