A UN panel’s view that Julian Assange is being “arbitrarily detained”, David Cameron’s prospective deal with the EU and the announcement that Friends’ Matt LeBlanc will host Top Gear are the three topics Jimmy and John tackle in this week’s podcast.
You might recall that way back in, er, October the United Nations published a report on Cyber Violence Against Women and Girls.
Two things happened. First much of the media regurgitated its claims without question, and then a few bloggers started pulling apart the report, which was replete with errors, phoney assertions and even a citation that linked to the author’s C Drive.
The whole saga was catalogued by the feminist writer Christina Hoff Sommers, who debunked the stats and slammed the “totalitarian” recommendations of the report.
