It’s bad enough that so many people watch this crap. It’s worse that so many people spend so much time talking about it. It’s a disgrace that this is apparently the most important thing in the world today.
Come on people, get a grip. I thought Ross/Brand was going to be the year’s low water mark of non-news. Leave this shit to ‘Heat’ and start being journalists. Remember investigating? Exposing? Holding people to account? It’s not like you’ve finished everything else and writing about dance competitions is the only news left. We should be proud of you, not regretting you were ever taught to write.
I know your business model is tanking and your newspapers are going to wither and die but you could at least have the decency to go out fighting so we’re sorry you’re gone, rather than breathing a national sigh of relief at your wholly deserved demise. And don’t get me started on your sorry cousins on TV and radio. At this rate, the sooner all mainstream news services are fragmented into obscurity the better for us all.
