Recommended read - Charlie Brooker

Charlie Brooker is always worth reading and listening to, but his Guardian column yesterday on the media's obsession with public apologies was particularly good.

He wrote:

...even if [John] Terry had been caught having sex with a Cabbage Patch Doll in the window of Hamleys, he'd still be a better role model than any tabloid newspaper.


Step out of line and the press will encircle and kick you. And kick you and kick you and kick you until you beg for forgiveness. At which point, if you're lucky, they'll chortle and sneer and move on. They must be frightfully proud.
