Welcome to another Splash Sunday, brought to you as I sit on my sofa, watching a documentary about the Queen (I blame The Crown for this…)
We’ve got six really great articles for you to read this week: from an investigation that featured in Private Eye, to a round up of 2017 in music, there should be something here for everyone.
We hope you enjoy the pieces we’ve picked, and, as always, email or tweet any submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or @SPAjournalism.
The scoop that Toby Young attended a secret eugenics conference at UCL made national headlines and made it into Private Eye. This story should be an example to all student news journalists. Phenomenal.
They’ve also laid it out in a really impressive, creative way. I’m sure you’ll discover a few gems that you’ve forgotten about or missed entirely over the course of the year.
Although, getting my hands on some actual tickets would be good, so if anyone has any going spare…
The writer also looks into how likely it is that the new manager will be able to turn things around.
However, I think this is a good example of how to sensitively report the news of a death on campus, while maintaining the tone of news writing.
I don’t think this story really needs an explanation. Surely that headline alone makes all of you want to click on the article to find out the truth?
At the SPA we’re big investigative journalism fans, and while this may be of a different ilk to most investigations we see, it’s a great read. Enjoy!
