Real News. Real Funny.
Feed_The_Walrus: I'm confused, the first paragraph speaks of the BBC being caught up in its own Phone-hacking scandal but does not mention the scandal anywhere and I was not aware of them being caught up in one.Child molestation and poor journalism perhaps but no mentions of a phone scandal ... perhaps they meant it metaphorically. all I know is that I just read about 15 paragraphs of shiate that I already knew.
Pista: Murdoch really is an oxygen thief.Yep, the Beeb horsed up. But the DG had the decency to do the right thing & take the responsibility.Not sure Rupe can say the same thing really. He just shut down a newspaper & left everyone reasonably farked.Don't even get me started on that slime ball Cameron.
j__z: SlaxlThe article talks of the reputation of the media sinking to an all time low but the profession has been in the gutter for at least a decade if not moreI may be a bit jaded, but it's been in the gutter from the beginning. These scandals and the attempt manipulate public opinion is nothing new, it's just more apparent these days with the dearth of information out there.
Slaxl: Can anyone here honestly tell me they can possibly think worse of a profession that has WND, Fox News, American Thinker, etc? It's hardly even journalism anymore. No one has any respect for them. Interestingly the closest thing you get to a "journalist" getting credit on here is Shephard Smith at Fox, because he's not as bad as all the others. That's a pretty low bar for anyone to live up to.
Zenith: so nothing to do with the celeb culture this old tosser has helped foster on the world. one of the reasons saville got away with it was because no one wants to believe the rich and famous could be that bad.sorry but they can.
