Why shouldn't crap journalism carry warnings?

A British blogger, Tom Scott (no relation) has posted an hilarious item about stickering "free" newspapers with warning labels such as the one above. [Hat tip to David Hayes over at TFEW]
It seems a bit strange to me that the media carefully warn about and label any content that involves sex, violence or strong language — but there's no similar labelling system for, say, sloppy journalism and other questionable content.
I figured it was time to fix that, so I made some stickers. I've been putting them on copies of the free papers that I find on the London Underground. You might want to as well.
Scott has created a template for you to print out your own labels and has thoughtfully created a U.S. version that better fits label sheets available here.
