How NOT to do mobile journalism


After spending several hours at the Chatham Historic Dockyard on a freezing cold Wednesday morning, my group partner [who I won’t name and shame] and I walked away like we had just made it as big-time journalists. We had turned up at the dockyard with a clear plan of action: to find the BBC comedy, Quacks, film-set and to interview several of the cast members – which was incredibly naïve of us to think that we would actually be allowed to do so, but nevertheless, we were big-time journalists ready to break our first CFJ story.

We couldn't help but notice a familiar byline on the Express website's coverage of Kanye West's meltdown this morning. That's Lauren Meechan, who graduated from the CfJ's BA programme this summer, and has landed a great job as online showbiz reporter for the Express - having applied through LinkedIn.

Congratulations Lauren.

An outsider looking in – a Muslim’s perspective of America


So unless you’ve taken a trip off to a distant planet the last few weeks, you’ll know Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States of America. The more likely scenario is that you’ve been in a weird hybrid hibernation – sleeping for a while, waking up to check if it really happened, then pretending it didn’t by going back to sleep - since the dramatic result of a fascinating, but very depressing election. I wouldn’t blame you. We’ve just endured arguably one of the worst elections. We witnessed two candidates who were not particularly liked face off.

Now you're probably thinking, "Katie, get over yourself, it's a bloody mobile app." and I couldn't agree with you more, but let me explain to you why I was so invested in this app.
