The Media
The purpose of this thread is the examination of the peculiarities of the press, TV and the internet behaviors of the countries of the world. As an example, take the case of Oscar Pistorius who is being tried for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp. The case has received a good deal of international coverage.

I have a question. If Steenkamp looked like this woman, would the case be so widely covered?

Rather than this woman.

The first woman is quite awesome, actually. She has this bizarre disease that makes her body unable to grow any fat.

Portly? Do what i did - get hiking boots.

As for television there was a time it had a bit more class than nowadays. It is too hoi-polloi for me mostly so thank goodness I have other interests.

The Media

In case you haven't noticed it yet, the "Media" is/are these days nazi propaganda.

New nazis aren't like the ones Americans come to Europe to fight and kidnap their scientists - thanks Von Braun, now we can go to the moon -  (or sell their refrigerators, according to some historians). They've evolved and learned a lot.

A matter of attitude.

I'd love to see you go to the moon, Ms Belfrager.

Dilbert got a new animator recently. Compare.

Before


After


Comments?

Actually, there has apparently been a period of looking after a new animator. Some strips meanwhile are pretty bad.




Update: Ah, it's apparently guest animators month or something.

Why would you think I chose the word? I am simply reporting an announcement that was written in English supposedly by some native speaker/writer. It's your language problem, not mine.

I thought the regular Dilbert comics were static images.

Bande dessiné is by nature animated, frame after frame. Kind of cinema.

Only media I remotely trust is the BBC World service.

(A),(N),(C)BS all have their respective agendas, as does Fox. PBS isn't too bad.

I did always get a chuckle at the Daily Mail when I was in the UK.

Perhaps because you cited no source and you didn't use any indication that you were quoting someone else...? :)
Is that how "the media" works in your part of the world?

So comic strips are that kind of media in your part of the world. Or perhaps this is an anonymous forum.

As usual, a non sequitur answer... :) ersi, your English is too good to let me believe you don't know what you're saying, through inadequate grasp of the language.

The press you refer to, just psichological terrorists serving finantial capitalism.
