It seems that Twitter has become the latest method of the press and various news outlets to gather stories for their sites and papers. Many news sites have reported on Stephen Fry’s twitter saying he’s thinking of disconnecting from the twitterverse. It’s fair enough for the media to comment on famous people, but really? Twitter?

Hello, and welcome to News Discontent. The purpose of this site is to provide an alternative view on current events and world news. It is mostly opinionated, and discussion is most certainly welcomed, if you agree or disagree with anything I write about then let me know…your views are important!

There have been several very newsworthy events over the past few days, mostly involving issues such as homophobia, racism, immigration, and the general public’s feelings about the BNP appearing on Question Time. The world of sport is no less busy, with the driver merry-go-round and FIA presidential voting in F1, Liverpool losing 4 games in sucession as well as the “beachballgate” affair against Sunderland in football, and the World Series in US baseball. I am still yet to determine whether any teams other than those based in the US play in the supposed World Series!

Keep checking back to this site, I aim to update at least once a day, maybe more if I have time, maybe less if I’m busy at work.

And above all, thank you for reading!
