This advert for the Guardian's open journalism, screened for the first time on 29 February 2012, imagines how we might cover the story of the three little pigs in print and online. Follow the story from the paper's front page headline, through a social media discussion and finally to an unexpected conclusion.
Lá diz o povo “quando mija um português mijam logo dois ou três”, e não o diz por acaso - são muitos anos de estudo; e olhando para o estado lastimável em que se encontram as esquinas de becos e travessas e as ravessas dos prédios, é medida a implementar rapidamente e em força na Lusitânia, com alguns acertos, Lei da Paridade oblige - «logistically, women are counted out of participating».
A minha dúvida “anatómica”, chamemos-lhe assim, é como é que uma gaja consegue fazer uma mijadela para uma «plastic drinks bottle filled in the comfort of the bathroom» (?!?).
Depois da leitura dum post no contra-informação, resolvi ir investigar para saber mais qualquer coisa. E, ou há qualquer coisa que não bate certo, ou o Guardian trabalha para a agência de informação do Governo Sócrates…
«The project, which will generate clean electricity for more than 1,000 family homes in its first phase, marks the latest step in Portugal's moves to become a leader in developing renewable energy sources»
«Greenpeace UK's chief scientist, Doug Parr, said the UK government's energy secretary, John Hutton, should take urgent note of the developments in Portugal.»
"Wave technology invented in Scotland is powering Portuguese homes and making money for Portuguese suppliers, because our government has consistently neglected the renewables industry here in the UK."
Partindo da célebre pergunta de Henry Kissinger durante a Guerra-Fria "When I want to talk to Europe, whom do I call?", David Marquand analisa o “Não” irlandês ao Tratado de Lisboa e as perspectivas para o futuro da União Europeia num mundo que se tornou “unipolar”:
“Be bold, Europe, or remain a fat, rich political pygmy
The great question for Europeans as it takes shape is brutally simple. Do we want our children and grandchildren to live in a world run by the Americans, Chinese, Indians and perhaps Russians, or are we prepared to make the qualitative leap towards the federalism that Kissinger's question implies, and become at least a quasi-superpower in our own right?”
“the question really isn't whether cameras reduce crime; the question is whether they're worth it. And given their cost (£500 m in the past 10 years), their limited effectiveness, the potential for abuse (spying on naked women in their own homes, sharing nude images, selling best-of videos, and even spying on national politicians) and their Orwellianeffects on privacy and civil liberties, most of the time they're not. The funds spent on CCTV cameras would be far better spent on hiring experienced police officers”

“In 1968, a walkout by a group of women machinists at Ford led to the Equal Pay Act. So why, four decades on, does a massive gender gap at all levels of earnings mean industrial tribunals are clogged up with cases?
Forty years ago, a group of women sewing machinists at the Ford Motor Company plant in Dagenham saw red. They discovered that men who were doing the same work as them - making the car seats for Cortinas and Zephyrs - were being paid 15 per cent more.
The women walked out of the plant on 7 June 1968 in support of a claim that would not only pay them the difference but that would recognise their skills and put them on a higher grade. Many of them were former dressmakers and took pride in their work which they felt was going unrecognised. They wanted to be put on the same pay level, grade C, as the paint spray operators in the plant. As this was the group of machinists responsible for making all the seat covers their action rapidly brought production at the plant to a halt.”
Da urgência de um “Processo Microfone Dourado”; agora que o ex-Shadows vem afirmar que perdeu a Eurovisão por manipulação de resultados a mando do nosso ex-condómino da Jangada; o ditador Francisco Franco:
“40 years on, congratulations may be in order”
“Sir Cliff demands trophy after film claims Franco plot denied him Eurovision win
For years, Sir Cliff Richard has endured jibes about almost everything: his music; his faith, his relationships. Even his competitively-priced Portuguese wines. But while the singer has stoically turned the other cheek one wound has festered quietly for four decades - coming second in the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest.
That stain on his career, however, may yet be removed. An investigation in Spain has uncovered skullduggery which, it says, shows the dictator Francisco Franco had the vote rigged, ensuring that the Briton, then a 27-year-old starlet, never had a chance of winning with his song, Congratulations.”
Na melhor tradição de Mao, muda-se o povo; elimina-se o povo, se preciso for. O povo, esse empecilho.Património da Humanidade, sem humanos:
'They are like bandits'
“The Chinese authorities hope that the shrine at Wutai Shan will be considered for designation as a Unesco world heritage site. Local residents, however, claim they have been forced from their homes and relocated away from their livelihoods in preparation for the bid”
“Imaginem que a ETA tinham uma escola em Portugal para a formação de bombistas, em campos de treino protegidos pela polícia portuguesa; imaginem que as autoridades portuguesas abasteciam a ETA com armas compradas com dinheiro obtido através da venda de droga, negócio onde as autoridades portuguesas estavam enterradas até a pescoço. Seria um escândalo com uma dimensão inimaginável. É o que está a acontecer neste momento com o governo Venezuelano e com as Farc.” (Tradução livre).
“Se Hugo Chavez quisesse, poderia forçar as Farc a libertar Betancourt amanhã pela manhã. Era só dizer: ‘vocês a entregam ou o jogo acabou para vocês na Venezuela’. A dependência das Farc com os venezuelanos é tão grande que eles não poderiam dizer não”
