News blues

Today I read a very telling article at The Times. Apparently Blair was not a good prime minister and never was. Its interesting however that the paper actually supported the Blair administration whilst he was in power and waited until his departure to condemn him. Its good to know how the media treats the subjects that make it rich when they are no longer useful.

Another story which made me cringe was: 'Stress risk' for British troops. Of course there is going to be stress! Its part of territory and something you accept if you take the job. Perhaps the media should consider how much stress every single Iraqi faces in their life every day trying to stay safe. They don't have a choice and can't leave when things get bad.

Do you agree? To help you decide take a look at Jibjab's movie: "What we call the news".
