This is Not The Threads Election

Welcome to The Addition, where I cover the crossover between media and tech. There is a new episode of “House of Comments”, the politics podcast I co-present, out. This week we focus on how UK prime minister Rishi Sunak has had to apologise after he departed D-Day 80th anniversary commemorations early. Listen here Threads News Fail Threads has been live for a little under a year. While it has undoubtedly made some progress, it has failed to become the hub of online conversation in the way...

Welcome to The Addition, where I cover the crossover between media and tech. My apologies for the lack of a newsletter on Friday. I managed to hurt my wrist playing football and finally went for an X-ray that morning. (I know, I know...) It turns out I have a minor fracture. It also turns out that, according to the surgeon who looked after me, typing helps the recovery, so I don't have an excuse any more! House of Comments, the politics podcast I co-host with Emma Burnell, is doing extra...

Mehdi Hassan's new project, Zeteo, is already making waves. Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn had to apologise to Britain's Chief Rabbi for comments he made when talking to the former MSNBC host. Gary Lineker's recent appearance also raised some eyebrows. The BBC hasn't had much to say on whether his comments about the war in Gaza are in keeping with the social media guidelines written for the former footballer. Euro 2024 starts on June 14, with Lineker set to lead Aunty's coverage. Up For Debate...

Women’s sport is having a moment. In the UK, the Women’s FA Cup Final between Man Utd and Spurs was attended by 76,082 fans on Sunday (including me). That’s just shy of the record-breaking 77,390 who went to Wembley last season. Today, Arsenal Women announced that they will use the club’s main Emirates Stadium as their base from next season. A huge move, but perhaps not a surprising one given they keep selling it out. Over in the US, basketball player Caitlin Clark is a phenomenon. She has...

On this week's podcast, I spoke to the New York Times media reporter Ben Mullin about NPR and the outburst from its former producer Uri Berliner. As I understand it, Berliner's colleagues were somewhat shocked when his essay was released by The Free Press. There are now concerns about him being dragged into the right-wing media ecosystem in the US. Worth keeping an eye on what podcasts he pops up on. There is... uhum... febrile speculation in the UK today that prime minister Rishi Sunak will...
