The media and Covid-19: making a bad situation worse

Twatter isn't so bad. Where else can you get reported by Gary Lineker, Laura K and Beth Rigby in 2 hours and have your ban overturned in less than 3 minutes?

Intellectual? No. Fun? Yes.

I wasn't overly polite but the twitter chaps found in my favour on each occaision. Maybe they will start to work out they don't set the agenda...we do.

Well I've got a couple of names for you.. starting with Kay Burley.
 
And the response has been the realisation among our political and other 'leaders' - from every state-sponsored organisation there is - is that any response to a question from the press will be manipulated to show an 'uncaring' heart. The public, conditioned from many years of Facebook, twitter and every left-leaning commercial outlet, seem to follow the lead. Any statement which tells the 'Apologise And Resign' reporter to do one is uncaring and therefor a vote-loser.

I say 'seem', but of course the actual response may vary from that shown in those media; the result of the last General Election was a vast surprise to the Press. Whenever I see a headline which claims to reflect The Public's Opinion, I read further down to discover that it probably doesn't at all.

In this case, that 'Momentum' poll (however it may have been conducted) has probably been a knife in the guts to many. It hasn't been reported on in the main outlets, though.
The in your face social media bubble seems to be a self feeding organism that whips itself into a froth in its self righteousness, forgetting that is indeed a bubble and not reality.

I have no doubt there's a silent majority who won't touch it for those reasons. They watch and take note and can hopefully be counted on to do the right thing as they see it.

So far, that seems to have been the case.

BREAKING NEWS: There are reports that Dominic Cummings has been seen walking on water. Robert Peston is demanding to know why he can’t swim.

Absolutely this.

He is, he is the Messiah. And I should know I've followed a few of them.

I am always amazed that when celebrities put their heads above the Twitter parapet, they can't handle the truth that not everybody agrees with them or hangs on their every word.
I don't do Twitter, but keep up the good word on my behalf.
Thank you for your service.
 
BBCradio2 the Feltz woman was on.
Top question, “Have you written to your MP demanding Cummings should be sacked”
Sadly I will not hear the responses.
 
Some lass now saying Dominic Cummings would have been fined if he were black.

FFS. I can just imagine her strutting up and down her street to take the applause for such penetrating idiocy.
 
Big grin from Hancock when he called Pesto for a question. Pesto still had to get a sly dig in at Cummings though.
 
Courtesy of Guido ...Sunday Mirror has been reported to IPSO for Fake News ... the circulation of the Guardian seems to be taking a bit of a hit ...

Guardian is down to 109k in April - bit awkward to lose 23,000 readers in only 3 months.
.... does The Guardian have a viable future as a print Newspaper ? Perhaps it is in its death throws and spewing bile for its last few months before disappearing up ....

So if the Politzi fine him £30 will this all be over?

I see a lot of people around these parts who have had visitors to their homes and been out socialising like it's 2019 without the fallout that some guy that no-one seems to like trying to look after his kid got.

It's also interesting that since these daily briefings have begun there has only been one person from a BAME background ask a question that had nothing to do with race or colour.
