My New Favorite Stickers: Journalism Warning Labels

The best stickers I’ve come across since Srini Kumar’s books of stickers (Sticker Nation Vol. 1 and Vol. 2). Tom Scott, these are genius, thank you!

It seems a bit strange to me that the media carefully warn about and label any content that involves sex, violence or strong language — but there’s no similar labelling system for, say, sloppy journalism and other questionable content.

I figured it was time to fix that, so I made some stickers. I’ve been putting them on copies of the free papers that I find on the London Underground. You might want to as well.

    I am amazed at how many people blindly believe what the news media produce. “It must be true otherwise they would not have printed it” or ” they can’t tell lies on the six oclock news” How easily they are controlled.
    The news media is not there to inform us but to entertain us – while controlling what we think.
    It is also used to divert our attention away from other issues (remember O.J. ?)
