How Charlotte Church kept cool in the eye of a tabloid and Twitter storm

Jewell, John 2015. How Charlotte Church kept cool in the eye of a tabloid and Twitter storm. The Conversation 2015 (12 Oct)

Abstract

I’ve written elsewhere about the effortlessness with which the BBC’s Question Time programme seems to habitually generate controversy. Regular guests, such as George Galloway, David Starkey, Russell Brand and Germaine Greer apparently guarantee higher viewing figures, if not nuanced political repartee. And perhaps this is the point. Question Time in the 21st century is not only about allowing the political elites to pontificate and obfuscate – these days comedians, movie actors, reality TV stars and pop singers are afforded the opportunity to air their views before a studio audience and millions watching at home.
