The Times they are a-changin’
Posted by Polonius on 20 December, 2006
The London Times used to be a respected newspaper of record, but since the advent of the Dirty Digger, it has become a tawdry rag that will support whichever political party it is in his interests to support. That in itself would be no great concern; the troubling thing is that the Tory and Tony parties are convinced that Murdoch’s readership are precisely the sort who are stupid enough to vote however he tells them.
Against this background, it is surprising to read an articulate and considered article that expresses concern at the recent behaviour of the UK media.
