the other week it was Domgate wall to wall, nothing else happened on the planet. This week it's Floyd wall to wall at the exclusion of all else!

dougy: "Is it wise to be so dismissive of something you know nothing about? " - I know lots about it, same as I know lots about soaps but never watch them. It permeates society via the great unwashed, I acquire knowledge without even realising it. I shock myself regularly by knowing answers about soaps on quiz shows!
‘ I see no value in Twitface at all’

I’ve just given you a value......
A more balanced view of world news.

You’re predjudice against Twitter is unjustified unless you’ve tried it. I keep up to speed with local events, the Yorkshire Dales, some humorous stuff, as well as the news. It’s kind of like a personalised Reader’s Digest (for those of us who remember it). It’s not evil or corrupt unless you want it to be. There are adverts which pop up but they’re very easily ‘muted’ or blocked and you never see them again. Go on, go on, go on.....try it.

jim 10:31, so we must create anti white racism to address alleged anti black racism? Two wrongs do make a right?
Osmosis then. Righto.

ZM, are you Jack Dorsey by any chance?
Clearly not. Equally, it's misleading to characterise measures designed to address imbalance as being biased against those who benefitted from that imbalance.
Nope, just someone who find’s Twitter a very useful ‘tool’.
For Funks Sake sake watching Dawn Butler on 'Politics' and she has placed a black power based collage/pic on her radiator so it is on camera ... jesus wept.
I doubt he would. He was black.
If she always has frames on her radiator then ...well... What The Funicular?
//I'm I the only one who finds the broken record approach annoying?//

On the news I can turn it off. To be honest, I find the "broken record approach" more annoying on AB than I do on the news.
//so we must create anti white racism to address alleged anti black racism? Two wrongs do make a right?//

Isn't that kind of what is happening with every cry of "Well, white lives matter too!"?
Tora - the media is perfectly capable of handling more than one story at a time, as it clearly does, every day.

The domination of one story is driven by the consumers of news, the delivers are news are driven by their consumers.

The domination effect has emerged from the way in which the public wants its news presented. If the public wanted a scattergun approach, then the media would provide it, but it doesn't, it likes to follow one story obsessively for about a week or so, and then move on.

It's human nature - back in the day, that's how we got hit records!
Maajid Nawaz on LBC. Had a succession of 'activists' on, just said, 'For a bit of balance, now we'll hear things from the police's point of view, so here's Janet Hill..........the chair of the Metropolitan Black Police Association.
Lol, made I larf, anyway.

You obviously believe that. I don't.
^ I'll admit that could be partly due to my subconscious bias.
Spicerack - // /The domination of one story is driven by the consumers of news, the delivers are news are driven by their consumers.//

You obviously believe that. I don't. //

Allow me to qualify -

I mean that providers of news are driven in terms of the format and presentation of news, rather than the news itself, that as I am sure you know, is an entirely different box of frogs.
Maajid Nawaz on LBC.
A professional journalist and agitator. Every programme he spouts on is about perceived racism. He is biased and is lucky to hold his views on UK media.He didn't get away with his carp in Egypt and probably justifiably was banged up in an Egyptian Gaol. Couldn't push his agenda there so complains about our system of democracy here.I always turn him off now he makes me puke.
I don't suppose you've ever thought looking inside a newspaper, or scrolling down a page?

On today's Mailonline front page: Sophie Wessex, sleep habits, colostomy bags, Amanda Holden's strong and sensible husband, Maddie, Isle of Wight postman, Rhian Sugden's jaw-dropping cleavage...

Jolly bad luck that there's not a lot of sports to cover at the momeht, but there are still crosswords to keep the old brain cells working.
