A Sense of Proportion?

There are billions of human stories in the world each day. Gaza is aflame, a new administration is making itself ready to take power in America, Russia continues to keep the gas shut off, poverty stalks the western world as much as the rest, Zimbabwe remains in a state of colapse......so what was the lead item this weekend? Prince Harry used the term 'paki' in a three year old video of his army mates. It speaks volumes about the British media's utter uselessness, and inability to use any sort of journalistic discernment that this deeply uninteresting, not terribly important story should have been their main item.

The blogger "Cranmer" has this response to it.
