Gone but not forgotten

I am not going to name you - I wouldn't dream of it - but why did you remove the post? I received it as an email and really liked it. Our newspapers are dreadful - and it is very hard to know which version of any story to believe. I usually read the Guardian, the Independent and BBC news online. And in the evenings, I watch Lost and Bromwell High!

Haha, I feel guilty when I post long comments, I suppose. It seems like a stroke of bad blogger etiquette, as if I'm taking a liberty of some kind.

As for the unreliability of the press, I, too, piece together several different sources, though, of course I have my favorites, and now, with the advent of political blogs, streching from Paris to Kenya, I can creep even closer to the truth; unsurprisingly, it's almost always somewhere in the middle.

It is a sign that the newspapers are not dreadful dontyathink? If they all siad the same then we would think they had been told what to think. Nope. Not with you.

I was listening to Tom Paxton in the car today- showing my age again- he has that great song about the Daily News. I like to think our broadsheets are not that bad yet, also the BBC, though they do seem to live in a parallel universe, as when I read that we are all very angry about Blair not tellling us where he was on holiday. Am I bovvered? does my face look bovvered? I don't think so..

IR and I were talking about the Daily Mirror and the reporting about the silent pianist in there -not the (ex) broadsheet papers - I was trying to be helpful by providing links to the broadsheets (well some of them) - not 'dissing' them. Yougetme?
