“In this view, the writer’s job is not to share insight or perform acts of journalism or entertainment, but more a kind of PR filtration duty for a specified “community”. The process of turning industry news into blog posts even has its own quasi-formal language: engaging and sufficiently stripped of marketing to be readable—with a hint of snark to establish that all-important critical distance!—but punctilious in its servicing of reader expectations.”

kings of new york movie – The King’s Speech movie – a stammerer’s view
The movie did great things for awareness of stammering and the stage play, on which the screenplay was very closely based, had the same effect – although, sadly, it has now closed after a short run in London’s West End. The story gave stammerers and non-stammerers ‘permission’ to talk to each other about this often embarrassing subject. King George VI died in 1952 and, whilst we know a lot more today about the causes and treatment of stammering, there is still no cure and, in many parts of the country, the NHS does not provide any speech therapy service for adults. For an interview with Colin Firth about his role as the King in the film, please go to www.stammering.org For more information on The Monster Study, see en.wikipedia.org If you are in the UK, and want help with your speech, please ring the British Stammering Association helpline on 0845 603 2001 or visit www.stammering.org The BSA is the national charity and is run by people who stammer, for the benefit of all those whose lives are affected by stammering. If you live outside the UK, and want advice about stammering – or simply want to learn more – you can still go to www.stammering.org or to any of these other leading sites www.stutterisa.org (International Stuttering Association), http (USA), www.stutteringhomepage.com (USA) or http If you like to see an adaptation of this video, spoken in Swedish, please go to www.youtube.com
