columnist Suzanne Moore tweeted a ten point guide to journalism

Journalism As a useful corrective to my sentiments in the previous post, yesterday columnist Suzanne Moore tweeted a ten point guide to journalism which someone has usefully collected together on Storify. Point five says everything:
5) No one else has your voice. You may not be able to sing but you can love singing. Loving is much harder than hating in writing.
Point seven nearly made me cry.  Given the quality of writing in some commercial products, I'm not sure I agree with point nine.  But otherwise, Baz Luhrmann should remix the acoustic version of Jessie J's Price Tag with Moore herself reading this list over the top.  Yes, indeed.
