Chris Horkan

Portfolio site for a Manchester-based journalist and web developer

Posted on October 16, 2008 No Comments

Launched in April 2007, is a satirical website covering the worlds of politics, media, culture and sport with spoof news stories, commentary and opinion. The site is edited by ‘two of Britain’s least respected journalists’: Neil Rafferty (ex-Sunday Times and Press Association) and Paul Stokes (ex-Scotland on Sunday and The Scotsman).

Since its launch, the website has seen remarkable traffic growth, with it now receiving hundreds of thousands of visits and several million page views each month. It has expanded to offer a T-shirt range and a book, Halfwit Nation, which was published in October 2008.

My involvement with began in December 2006 – I built an initial website and then redesigned it the following year.
