Hey, nice priorities!

Major news today included serious currency fraud on Wall Street as well as Bush being jeered at Buckingham Palace.

So what is the lead story on most websites and TV news programs? Something weighty about how US Presidents don’t often get booed in London? A piece about the massive amounts of fraud and corruption being uncovered on a daily basis in corporate America?

No, the lead story is – did Michael Jackson diddle a 12 year old? A grotesque crime if true, but not something that ought push genuinely important news out of the spotlight.

Bread and circuses. While Rome burns.
