Quote of the Day

Adam Boulton blogs

“Two important sectors of our society now feel under a great deal of pressure, beset by plunging fortunes and public esteem: newspapers and politicians. As they go down they are turning in on each other with increasing viciousness – politician against journalist, politician against polititian, journalist against journalist.”

      One of them is the parasite and one the host, but they haven’t quite worked out which one is which yet.

      The 4th is the voluntary sector. Who do little more than try to scare people for money. Money that mostly goes on perpetuating their own self-existence.

      Mind you, without the MSM, they are pretty screwed. The Guardian and BBC regurgitates their press releases without the slightest bit of critical thought.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
