He?s a rock star and a voice for the world?s poor. Bono can now add something new to his resume ? journalist.
Bono was a guest editor of the U.K. newspaper The Guardian on Tuesday. He used the space as a way to bring more attention to Africa.
The front page of the paper yesterday had block letters saying ?NO NEWS TODAY,? and then underneath it, “Just 6,500 Africans died today as a result of a preventable, treatable disease.”
The front page was on a red background, which was to support Bono?s red campaign, which launched in January and urges corporations to sell their products with a red label with one per cent of profits going to aid in Africa.
Bono also wrote an editorial for the paper addressing issues in Africa.
