Israel/Gaza

An extremely interesting - and some may say contentious - article, detailing the 'unseen' side of life in Gaza.

For more I can but refer readers, once again, to that 'must -read' blog Your Freedom and Ours.

I can only repeat - probably in vain - to the media; if we must have reporting then can we please have 'balanced' reporting? Or is fiction now presented as fact?

Travellin Media?? Yeah, well - some/few actually stick their necks out to do reportage..... most of the spineless fucks look for the social side... = for the most part hanging out, getting smashed and having those useful PR folk providing copy... ahh-bliss

It's just too easy to not rock any boats and pour low grade tat into the corporate infotainment MRN* mincer.

Pond life / shit flies - take your pick.

Sad fact that diligent and responsible reporting is a rarity - has it ever been thus?

GFPT, you are probably right - has the media ever faithfully and without bias reported anything?
