Media Stretch

The non story about Messrs Brand and Ross and is the entertainment equivalent to the politics story of Messrs Mandelson and Osborne.

Both were non stories which have been stretched out by the media until something happens. It is a pain of our times that multi cahnnel 24/7 has not evolved into greater discourse or depth or opinion or detail, but repetition and the elevation of the ‘dumb waiters’ of society to some exalted position.

Now I could go on about the tawdry details of each story but ask yourself this. It is one think for Sky (the red top of the broadcasting world) to peddle this nonsense but should you and I pay for it involuntarily. Yes, I am referring to the tax that is the BBC. To inform and entertain. The BBC seems to struggle on both counts. It is high time that the exact nature of this increasingly commercial beast is addressed. No other Government owned operation: Post Office, NHS is run with such little oversight. Allowing a bunch of middle class, left wing, retards is tantamount to dereliction of duty. As for their diversity! Yes, if you’re reflecting the diversity of a table of frappucino tasting people¬†in an Islington brasserie tucking into a bowl of ¬£10 olives perhaps. Do not let this sore fester any longer!
