Not just me then...the "Scumset".... "A lot of our overseas listeners are amazed at the amount of coverage that was being given to this issue". Euro meltdown, rampant "fuel poverty", Obama 'causing' possible dollar debt default, various wars and other non-important news. From EU Referendum, Reason departed...and it is definitely the impression I have; I even listened for most of this afternoon to the live broadcast of the Commons culture select committee on the phone-hacking scandal. Richard at EUR goes on: "What is wrong is the totally disproportionate coverage. And yes I did check ... there has been far more media coverage today than was given in the newspapers to the outbreak of the Second World War." FFS!
P.S. Why is it, that in the full glow of spotlight on media behaviour, the likes of Dan Sabbagh at the Guardian can spout such shit; can lie, blatantly and patently in public? He has a few possible excuses: either (a) Dan was drunk or on drugs (or both...or worse?) (b) didn't actually listen/watch or possibly (probably?) (c) had written most of his article before the event. No wonder his article wasn't open to comments.
