How come only just now...

Its been pretty obvious that tabloid newspapers are populated by evil fecktards for a very long time. So, like, why is everyone only just realising this now?

These papers have been employing some of the most immoral methods to gain information on sometimes very slight moral infringements by others, and whipping people up into fake, hysterical fury (when not just using the information they've gained to tittilate), and all of us have surely known about this for most of our adult lives. They have been putting massive, undue pressure on politicians to get their own way for a heck of a long time, and we have done nothing.

What changed? Are we not, as a populace massively hypocritical for only just now giving a shit?

I want the whole tabloid pressy to go down in flames, and I want the Daily Fail to be the biggest casualty; I want that immigrant hating, homophobic, lying piece of crap to be wiped off the face of the earth and for all of the sliced white bread eating Daily Wail readers to have to do the unthinkable and actually think for themselves. And if the Sun could vanish up its own arse, that'd suit me fine.  But there is something about this, its like the people are being manipulated into anger against the Murdoch at just the right time, its like we're pawns in a battle between media influences, and I resent that. I resent that a lot.

I suspect that there isn't just more to come on phone hacking, bribing the police, and controlling politicians, there is also more to come from the other side, there will be counter claims and revelations to come. It'll get dirtier and dirtier.

  • New Bike Time Soon?

    Pondering on bike 3. Bike 1, the daily hybrid, is a fairly rugged bike to take up and down kerbs (as thats what cycle lanes tend to do), to take off…

  • So what will I use LJ for now?

    So what will I use this for now? Random musings? Might not be a dreadful plan.

  • oh...

    ...I've still got a livejournal. Completely forgot.
