Hey, nice priorities!
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.
