The revised edition of Peter Burden’s News of the World, Fakes Sheikhs & Royal Trappings, received attention in The Guardian, today. Burden’s revised publication contains the scoop behind the Max Mosley case and reveals the other side of claims in the Fake Sheikh’s autobiography. It also bares all on the B&B naturists, which is what drew the interest of The Guardian’s Media Monkey, who reported that,
The revised edition of Peter Burden’s book… features two controversial pictures newly inserted by the author, one of which Monkey would rather forget. It shows the paper’s chief reporter, Neville Thurlbeck, reclining in a state of unfortunate undress, his blushes saved only by pixelation. Expect a torn-out page and an errata slip from the publisher if News International heads to the courts once again.

Waseem Mahmood, author of Good Morning Afghanistan, is again showing us how the media can be used for good with his new project, Ye Hum Naheen. What started out as a song became a worldwide anti-terrorist movement, with more than 62 million people in Pakistan signing up. In his own words, Waseem explains why he decided to take action.
The inspiration for the song came from my children who were tired at the way a minority of misguided young people were vehemently putting forward a message of radicalization and terrorism that was at odds with what the majority of Muslims believe. It was time to re-address the imbalance, and from the smallest child to the oldest person, Yeh Hum Naheen sought to give a voice to the voiceless. [...] The objective of the Yeh Hum Naheen foundation is to build on the essence of Islam as a faith that promotes tolerance, peace and harmony removing prejudices within the community and amongst non-Muslims around the world.
The Independent has published an article about the phenomenal success of Yeh Hum Naheen, including an interesting interview with Waseem.
