Harry Potter MotW #62

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 


Harry Potter Moment of the week is a weekly meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share one favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!    For information on how to join up & for upcoming topics, click here.

  Quibbler or Daily Prophet?


This one's an easy one for me, hands down: The Quibbler.  Sure they have flaky, sometimes crazy stories and theories but at least they're not a propaganda paper owned by Ministry officials covering up truths as they see fit. *seethes*


The Quibbler gave Harry Potter a chance to tell his side of the story when no one else was willing to listen which seals the deal for me.  Plus it's run by The Lovegoods. Gotta love that! Thinking of our lovely Luna reading the thing upside down always brings a smile to my face :)

  1. I had the same reasons! I'd probably end up being subscribed to both, you know, see both sides :D But I prefer The Quibbler :D

  2. Yeah, Same for me. I'd absolutely pick the Lovegoods over the greedy people behind the Prophet! Here's my HP MOTW!

  3. You know that I agree with everything you said, and I picked the Quibbler too. What I loved was that when we were introduced to Luna in the first place, she had one in her hand. It became a part of her identity so it's hard not to love it! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  4. Haha, that scene 'you're just as sane as I am'

    I would also pick The Quibbler even when my blog was inspired by The Daily Prophet. I really like goofy/quirky stuff and I bet it's filled with those nonsense facts :D

  5. Haha love that gif! I think the Quibbler would get on my nerves after a while even though it's probably quite interesting! I know DP would really wind me up but I love Rowling's message behind it :)

  6. I'd read The Quibbler just for the articles that are a bit off-the-wall. :D I love that it also rallied behind Harry and let him speak at a time when he was taking such a horrible drubbing in the wizarding press!

  7. I'd actually pick the Daily Prophet. I know it can be a bit corrupt, and Rita Skeeter works for it, but I kind of love Rita Skeeter. And I kind of love all that the Daily Prophet represents. It was one of the things in the series that really resonated with me and helped me connect my world to the magical one. I liked that it had this presence throughout the whole series. I like what it taught readers about judging what you see in papers/magazines. And I think it was 100% necessary to demonstrate how much of a public image Harry was. Also, think of all the awesome Lockhart moments too.

  8. Definitely The Quibbler! Though if The Daily Prophet ever got their act together, then I guess I would favour them for real news and The Quibbler for fun :)
