say. Well, here's mine, my lovely, great, steaming opinion. The world
appears to be blasting along at 110 per, straight into a financial, economic armageddon, with a good dose of religious war thrown in for good measure.
Or does it? Can we really trust our news media? There it sits, twenty four hours a day, pumping out rolling updates on nothing much, until something does happen, then we get constant coverage of the side of someones house (if it's a murder), a field (if it's a body), or some civic building (court case, financial collapse, important statement about deaths imminent).
What's the bias in all this news about? Well, misery and fear sell, so stories about murder, wars and people generally being bastards to each other make most of the news, rather than a man with a nice cat.
There's probably loads of books on it, which cleverer people than I would point you at; I think Michael Moore makes a point about it in one of his books. The point is, are things as bad as they seem? A group of scientists published a report last week which calls into question whether humans really are responsible for climate change. They're probably funded by oil companies or something, so that's probably a bad example, now I come to think about it.
I need answers, but can I trust Gordon Burns on North West Tonight?
