    yesterday i turned on sky news and here's how bloody ignorant they are of the fact that Blair cocked up:

    MAIN HEADLINE:
    BOTH TWINS ARE DEAD
    Both the conjoined Iranian twins undergoing high-risk surgery to separate their skull and brain have died.

    SECOND:
    MISSING GIRL IS FOUND
    The six-year-old girl who was thought to have been snatched by two men near her home in Brighton has been found safe and well.
    Summer Haipule was found at a neighbour's house.


    must be a pretty slow day for news i thought.

    but THIRD:
    PM BACKS IRAQ EVIDENCE
    Tony Blair says Britain did the right thing to remove Saddam Hussein from power and he stands by the Goverment's decision to go to war with Iraq.
    He made the comments as he appeared before a committee of senior MPs to defend the Government's handling of the Iraq crisis.



    so let me get this straight. news of two iranian twins joined at the head and a girl who was lost for a couple of days are more important than PRIME MINISTER OF UK DEFENDING THE GOV.s HANDLING OF THE IRAQ WAR, IN FRONT OF SENIOR MPs.

    FCUK SKY NEWS!!!
    i'm sorry but i had to vent.

    It's not a question of importance, it's a question of human interest. The conjoined twins and the missing girl have generated alot of human interest, and if you did a poll I would think that more people would rate thoes stories as more important than Tony Blair saying what he was expected to say.

    You're missing one link in the chain.

    It's actually a matter of profit
    Human interest is directly propotrtional to sales.
    Generate more profit by reporting more varied human interest

    which explains the historically low voter turnouts of western democracies

    forget human interest, buy People or Us, or whatever. I could care less if some bus takes a nosedive down a cliff and kills a bunch of foreigners. didn't know them, not my region, not my concern, not my business.

    Myfiles-

    It has been long enough that it might profit to explain your, ah, reasonings for your apparent lack of caring?

    We are entertaining newcomers, after all....

    Seriousness?
