Journalism Warning Labels may prevent that icky feeling after ready a sloppy article. Tom Scott, the creator of these smart stickers, thought that there should be warnings for bad articles just like there are warnings for content that involves sex, violence or strong language.

These witty stickers cover all the bases of bad writing from copy and pasting and Wikipedia sourcing to journalists hiding behind "some people claim." Scott's Journalism Warning Labels should be introduced in all forms of media -- they would surely save many a headache!
