THIS ^^^^ the behaviour of the british press has been frankly disgracefull , the phone hacking , payments to the police for information and the actual influence they've had on political parties and whatnot has put them up there with MP,s ( expenses scandal , and well just being slimey double dealing gits ) , The Police
( see Hilsborough cover up , Stephen Lawrence fiasco ) and NHS management ( not the nurses and doctors who generally work bloody hard ) for sheer mistrust about anything they claim to be true .

Maybe it's just because I've actually read most newspapers at one time or another, but "the British Press" has just as much meaning as "the British public". Which is to say, precisely none.

Tabloids (the ones at the center of the phone hacking et al) are so full of shit I actually become angry when I read them due to misrepresentation, omission, and fear-mongering.

Broadsheets (while not perfect) are a goddamn sight better, and we have several political bases covered with the big three - Guardian, Times and Independent. You can follow that up with news reporting from Channel 4, BBC and Al-Jazeera and by listening to all of it, you manage to draw together something resembling the truth.

So to hear someone lump them all together and say that they're collectively full of shit says to me that you're equally happy to be lumped together with room-temperature-IQ dickheads who beat their girlfriends, never have a job, and cause most of the workload of A&E when they get into drunken fights; and that other people should treat your opinions with the same respect as they'd treat those of the above. Because we're all "the public" right?

But just like the Menenzes case (and dozens others) this reads like the government flexing it's "Fuck you, we can do whatever we want thanks to 9/11" muscles. The question is, what happens when they flex them too far, or too many times in a short period.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
