BRITISH JOURNALISM / POLITICS IS IT TIME FOR IT TO GO?
Previous | 1 | Next

Whatever the latest issue or scandal is, the press and political parties are not content to simply report on it, but have to constantly savage the people or organisations involved until it is dead and buried.

Sick of it.

the press feed the masses

unfortunately the masses are inbred feckless idiots incapable of free thought

hence the only news i partake in is on Radio 4, and the daily fail for the tits :)

I thought it was dead already.

I'm entirely fed up of all the political parties in this country, and all the politicians.
We need a fresh start. They're all lying, self-serving, tw@ts.

But he held on for a good year in the face of the evidence. They're all as bad as each other. If it's not expenses, it's being in the pocket of some major corporation, or lying, or perjuring, or kiddie fiddling.

Sack the lot of them.

I reckon nobody who wants to be a politician should be allowed to become one.

Just resigns, as in 9 months ago? That article is from February.

Absolutely right! The masses rely on the tabloids to tell them how to vote and what to think.

The thing that really annoys me, still comes back to the same thing that we have probably all discussed before:

Nothing ever seems to be the fault of the individual responsible anymore, it must always be taken to the highest level of responsibility.

Jimmy Saville was a paedo - It's the BBCs fault, sack the Director General.
Those riots in London - It's the police's fault, sack the commissioner.
Someone has an accident at work - It's the company's fault, sue the MD.
Banks causing a recession - It's the government's fault, sack the Prime Minister

And so the list goes on, and on, and on.

... by the way, I accept that the examples above might not be entirely correct, but are just to make a point.

The biggest indicator of the tragic state we are in is the adverts on daytime TV (or even kids TV which is often on in our household):

- debt settlement firms
- personal injury lawyers
- PPI claim firms
- and the one that REALLY does my fecking head in, "Payday loan" companies that charge 3 or 4 THOUSAND percent APR FFS!!

Hello? Did anyone notice the 2008 debt crisis that is still very much with us? Did the word "debt" not register? And now we have apparently completely legal loan sharks advertising on TV!

Duncs speakth the truth.

Hardly anyone wants to except responsibility for their actions these days - why except the blame yourself, when someone else can take it instead. Not helped by the medias constant finger pointing and hype.
Just look at the story Giles posted about the Lambo and the mechanic. He wasn't happy with just getting the car repaired (and I'm guessing that there may be a bit of compensation involved too), he got the media involved, so that the whole world could see that there was BLAME here.

The sooner the Revolution/Cleansing starts the better..
