Hack of the Week Award!

This week’s Hack of the Week comes from The Telegraph, the so-called intelligent broadsheet which can’t be bothered to do its research.

It’s one of those profile pieces that collate as much info about an individual and throw some quotes in – this one is even accompanied by an “big head” caricature of RTD.

Basically, an uncredit hack has spliced together a series of statements about Russell T Davies, as seen below:

His first big break came with his first television drama: a six-part serial for children entitled Dark Season, which starred a young Kate Winslet. He went on to produce scripts for Cluedo.

His own working methods are unremarkable enough: “I sit down at the computer and I treat it like homework. I do it as late as I possibly can. You have to let it stew.”

When he is stuck, he leaves his apartment and heads for Tesco where he has some of his best inspiration.

It’s like a sort of “Who Am I?” with the answer at the top of the page.

Cheap, worthless and obvious filler, I never imagined that our Hack of the Week award would go to The Daily Telegraph!
