    The Tab isn't leftist and that is the point of The Tab... A bit of satire and shock added to the news. It distinguishes self from other student papers
    By being full of more ****e than the other ones?


    What The Tab does is neither satire nor shock. Calling it satire is an embarrassment, frankly.

    I enjoyed the article! Twas funny and tbh I've seen worse on the forum than I have in that article tbh

    That's the point of The Tab btw... To shock people

    No it's there to allow students to get a strong portfolio together so they can apply to formal media establishments. It's obviously a tabloid (doubt anyone didn't make that jump) but that doesn't mean it's there to spread lies for the sake of selling, it's a platform for student journalism.

    A poorly written, article written by a feminist Jew (see surname: Gold).. Could she play the victim card any more?
    Yup! I'd bet my bottom dollar daddy is loaded as ****, too. She fits every single feminist stereotype in the book. Another incredibly privileged western woman finding the tiniest, pettiest non- issues to be offended by.

    Right, so now that inept shambles of an article has been ripped to pieces on here, you now backtrack and claim it was satire.

    It wasn't remotely satirical or shocking. It was just patronising rubbish.

      That was probably the most boring article I've read in a while. I didn't really see anything funny and she took forever to say absolutely nothing. If that's the standard of journalism these days, then we're ****ed.

      ONE probably unfair article = the whole paper and all its authors, editors and features are full of ****e??

      Well yeah...that's probably the reason why some people write for The Tab and other student magazines. Experience and clippings for a portfolio.

      As for lies... What about the article was deceptive? Although I find the point about no women being on there to be a bit far fetched... There's plenty of women on here!!

      Its a pretty popular news outlet though, so it must be good for more than bolstering the old CV.

      Again... I said The Tab's aim is generally satire. I didn't say that that article in particular was satire.

      What a terrible article. What a terrible newspaper. Are they seriously trying to be worse than the Daily Fail?

      You know what's the most disturbing part? This could have been a piece from Daily Mail or the Guardian and nobody would have noticed. Just google Guardian/feminism. This is the standard of today's ''journalism''.

      Unfairness is only part of it.
      Lazy, poorly written, improperly researched, deliberately misleading, entirely unfunny... They could describe any of the articles I looked through linked from the main page.

      I'm struggling to see the point of it. If it were satire then it would be more obviously funny. If it were shock it would be more extreme and parodying. As it is, it just seems to be stuck in a no-man's land (pun intended) in between, and a horribly messy one at that.

      It's just bad. God help any of those people if they ever attempt a for-real career in journalism that goes beyond BuzzFeed (and even they would reject them on quality grounds).

      "3. Blonde, brunette or red-head?
      Again, another question which focuses solely on women’s appearance."

      Oh no, how dare people have preferences, because no women ever have preferences.

      I hate people.

      The Tab can do satire, really, really well, it's just inevitable it sometimes has to publish **** because the journos are whoever hands in copy.

      Check out this absolute screamer about the perils of going to John's, published just afer the infamous Samantha Brick Mail article.

      However, in an effort to make this less pornographic and more scientific, it instructs us not to look at the women’s boobs, but at their fat. Like choosing a pig at a market


      Somebody should probably tell her that boobs are​ fat.
