Perhaps a new angle on the term ‘News Blackout’.
Social commentary Work on how personal worlds are becoming ever-more colored and darkened when looking out from the inside – blinded to the light – by habitual daily mainstream media news consumption from biased and agenda-ridden reporting in the hard press.
The reverse applies looking in from the outside, the masses blinded to the real world and instead ever more rooted in their opinions the more newspaper & magazine “Infotainment” grabs hold, holds sway, as their reality.

The antidote, thankfully, is to hand in the form of the internet and social media, where the full spectrum of opinion is more or less freely expressed and the individual has a vast pool of information from which to form an educated opinion.. and cast his vote.

  2. What a brilliant way to cover windows, every day could be a new ‘look’—which would please those who are forever changing their decor!

    Newspapers at the window are a great way of finding out how long it takes for your neighbours to redeorate, the headlines or date on the paper kinda give it away! 🙂

    I rarely read newspapers as i can’t believe much of what is written, most try to brainwash you into their way of thinking with biased reporting etc. ‘Murdochitis’ will thankfully never be an affliction for me

    • That’s good to hear Mrs B.
      The MS media will never be truly independent for as long as they’re up to their rag sheet necks in the pay of big business and commerce.
      Political satire is fair game in the press, you’ll notice – but they rarely bring out the big guns in exposing/targeting individual large corporations.

      I like the succinct ” Corruption blocks innovation ” strapline … that pretty much sums up the terrible impasse this country is facing generally, too.
