Norway’s second largest tabloid is offering readers a button at the top of its Web site that will remove all articles about Anders Breivik, the man who went on a murder rampage in Norway last July, and now stands trial.
As Journalism.co.uk points out, this is similar to a Guardian experiment last year when they too had a button to remove articles. In that case, the offending media frenzy readers sought refuge from was the royal wedding.
Any story you’d like to see removed from the news sites you read?
Would you use this thing to control your television? We’re not sure either. It looks like an epically confusing controller along the lines of the Atari Jaguar’s epic 17-button monstrosity. But a recent Nightline report on Google TV briefly revealed this thing to the world. Wow, that’s a lot of buttons, isn’t it? source
