The Guardian | The Sun

Russell Brand lost his cool in a televised interview with a reporter, made another video about losing his cool, and tweeted that he plans to sue The Sun for calling him a hypocrite, Jason Deans reported Wednesday for The Guardian.

The comedian pays rent for his London home to a firm registered in the British Virgin Islands, often referred to as a tax haven, according to Wednesday’s Sun.

Brand, who has previously called for a revolution and has appeared at anti-capitalist demonstrations, responded to allegations in a story on the front page of the paper by saying on Twitter that he intended to sue.

11 years later, Idi Amin’s son objects to Guardian obit for his father

Ugandan dictator Idi Amin died over a decade ago, in August of 2003. Like news organizations all over the world, The Guardian published an obituary that told the story of how Amin grew up, came to power and then led with a bloody, iron fist. (As noted in the obit, the International Commission of Jurists in Geneva estimated the death toll during his leadership to be at least 80,000 and likely closer to 300,000.)

Amin’s death and the obits that followed it are old news. But not for his son, Hussein Amin. He recently wrote to Chris Elliott, The Guardian’s readers’ editor, to object. “Allow me to raise my displeasure at a Guardian obituary about my father, Idi Amin,” he wrote.

Amin, it seems, intends to run for public office and wants to clear some things up about his dad. Elliott detailed the request and his response in a fascinating column. Read more

8 women accuse Ghomeshi of assault, harassment

Good morning. Here are nine media stories.

  1. Women say Jian Ghomeshi choked, assaulted, harassed them

    The former CBC host's accusers "describe a man obsessed with his image and power, and someone who they say has little or no respect for barriers," Kevin Donovan and Jesse Brown write. Most of the women stayed anonymous but "Trailer Park Boys" actor Lucy DeCoutere put her name to her charges. Ghomeshi's alleged behavior was not confined to his private life, the report says: One woman said he told her “I want to hate f--- you” in a meeting and later "cupped her buttocks." When she complained, a producer asked her “what (she) could do to make this a less toxic work environment?” Ghomeshi, who is suing the CBC following his dismissal, did not comment. (Toronto Star) | Dan Savage: "Ghomeshi isn't a safe, sane, and consensual kinkster. He's a reckless, abusive, and dangerous one who has traumatized some women and lucked out with others." (The Stranger) | Melissa Martin: The "'pattern of behaviour' Ghomeshi accused his accusers of trying to create, it existed long before their allegations did." (Nothing in Winnipeg)

  2. Tim Cook writes about being gay

    "I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others.
