The history of the American Revolution isn’t the only thing the New York Times is revising through its 1619 Project. The “paper of record” has also taken to quietly altering the published text of the project itself after one of its claims came under intense criticism. When the 1619 Project went to print in August 2019 as a special edition of the New York Times Magazine, the newspaper put up an interactive version on its website. The original opening text stated: The 1619 project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. [emphasis added] The passage, and in particular its description of the year 1619 as “our true founding,” quickly became a flashpoint for controversy around the project. Critics on both the Left and Right took issue with the paper’s declared …

Wow - "The paper of record.
The NYT and the BBC need an independent "diff" tool run continuously over their content.
To this day, I don't understand why every article they publish doesn't have a "history" like one finds on Wikipedia pages. It would be so simple to implement.

The BTec First grades have been delayed. What caused the problems with the results?

Every single photo has a young girl doing a traditional man's job.
I'm sure there's no agenda.

First photo: Keep your eyes on the car, young man. That's how accidents happen. And take your elbow out of that drip-tray.

We could play a game of how many Photoshop errors there are in that first photo.

Ireland is being used by the US and the EU as a weapon to attack Brexit.

The Irish hate the British, or rather the English. And Brexit is seen as an ENGLISH thing. The Irish elites would be thrilled to see England made destitute, humiliated, become a pariah, "cancelled". Were that to happen, I dare say that there'd be street parties in Ireland and parts of New York.

The left is Internationalist in outlook, so is at the very least sympathetic if not outright favourable to the EU. Also that Internationalism means that the US Left has may ties with the UK Left, so will take it's cues in solidarity from its international brethren.

Brendan O'Neill must know this - he is an excellent journalist and is of recent Irish heritage.

The ancient bear, unearthed by reindeer herders, has been hailed as a find of "great importance".

Anyone else wondering if they "devoured it with relish"?
You have to have read Solzhenitsyn Gulag Archipelago to get that.
Zeks from a Gulag found a prehistoric salamader, and were so starved that they "devoured it with relish".
Relish as in the emotion, not the sauce.

David Cameron says he has "misgivings" about the proposed law to override the withdrawal agreement.

Not that I care what he has to say, but Cameron has hardly spoken out against the Bill. He's just said he has some misgivings and that such a bill should be a last-resort. forgive me if I've missed something, but didn't Boris and the Tories say that the so-called controversial bits were a last-resort, ie it says the government MAY do things, not WILL do things.
This rticle is mostly BBC spin rather that a attack from Cameron. Most of the article is not even about Cameron's words.

Video of the incident shows a figure approach their vehicle, before opening fire and running away.

I bet the BBC hated writing this article. This is a VERY short article written in a very neutral, and Trump isn't invoked or quoted, as he called them "Animals".

"Protesters shouted anti-police slogans and ..."
The "protesters", presumably mostly-peaceful, were Black Lives Matter protesters, a small fact that the BBC appears to have missed.
They were shouting "We hope they die", and then threatening the crowd-control police at the hospital with "You're next"; the BBC missed that too.
