I was going to do a cartoon on Blair after reading about his criticism of the media. Having read his speech though, I’ve lost the will to do so. Most of what he says is actually quite good even if it does rankle knowing about his own hypocrisy and lies.
Still, this is too funny not to quote:
The result is a media that increasingly and to a dangerous degree is driven by “impact”… an impulsion towards sensation above all else.
… today’s media… is like a feral beast, just tearing people and reputations to bits.
Do read the full thing though, the quote above is funny but by selection conceals what is actually not a bad point.
