    something i saw on twitter relating to the role of media in shaping opinion , no wonder newspapers are failing financially .



    although they are uk newspapers their " irish " versions follow a similar editorial line

    The media are the lowest form of scum.

    Yet people get their news from them.

    Somewhat ironically they are still better then peeps getting their news off social media!

    Semantics plays a big part in shaping opinion in the more high brow media outlets, still they are all fucking liers.

    The death toll is now 50 , with 39 wounded some critically , I extend to all the victims loved ones my deepest sympathy at this time. The man who did this is a v sick person , there is a picture of a 3 year old boy who he shot in one of the UK papers , it brings reality home .

    Not only is what this pathetic man did reprehensible and disgusting as is any terrorist attack on the innocent , the beliefs that propelled him are the stuff of nightmares and he is not alone in this. Full on no holds barred Nazi worship , no more no less.

    I owe a few an apology here , DR, Goatboy and Gonzo , wires crossed, I was not getting at them personally, they condemned this atrocious act . I see some further thoughts on the response based on Fatigue type stuff, and maybe the theories put forward have some accuracy , to me I am suitably not surprised at the response .

    The front pages posted by Joggon are a good example of how media ferment thought processes , the death of Princess Diana and the media impact on the population in UK is now formally studied , perhaps some should ask who is forming their opinions and attitudes.

    There are a few obvious absentees from this thread , in the future if we unfortunately have a terror attack by a Muslim and they start at it I will be all over them in a helpful educating balanced like way .

    I find it interesting the prominence to the live streaming and the naughty social media as against the victims/event itself / the man /his disgusting beliefs in the Media , important yes that important to be the Headline main story ?

    Bit like the Brexit voters, they target the lowest common denominator.

    It is funny you say that Barney, I would be interested in a survey of the media consumed by Brexit voters both print and TV . I would perhaps expect a definite trend , but could be wrong .

    The increase in violence in UK towards migrants, the Rise of the far Right there in conjunction with it, i saw a report that connections between that Animal in NZ and UK connections being looked at .

    Among the victims was a man who had fled the from Syria and felt he was in a safe haven.
