Wugazi

This is possibly the best album I've heard so far this year!

Wugazi is basically a mash up of Wu Tang Clan raps and Fugazi riffs, with a mix of hip hop beats and the original Fugazi drums.

If you've got even the vaguest interest in either artist, or even if you haven't, I urge you to check this out!

"Sophie's Desk"

“If you can’t have funerals in January, when can you?”

On the Beeb

To defend the BBC is usually to address it's criticisms. Very few of them are actually valid, so I won't bother.

Without the BBC the quality of media in this country would plummet.

Have you seen other English language media?

Yes there's some good TV shows that come out of America, and the Hollywood machine of course, even the odd film out of Australia occasionally.

But have you seen their news?

My god.

All news has a form of bias. Accusations of bias are launched at every media outlet, and this is fair to some extent.

However the BBC goes out of it's way to avoid accusations of bias, particularly political bias, and anyone looking with a critical eye can see that in comparison the BBC reports with less bias than their UK competitors, and a damn sight less than any American news outlet.

Yes they occasionally go along with the news agenda set by others, but for the most part on their national broadcasts they are as impartial as possible.

Compare this to their accusers. Every single newspaper in this country has a fairly transparent bias in favour of a certain world view.
The BBC has to find the middle ground here, and indeed try to report in a way that the majority of people will find acceptable.

Broken news

This just in: Nick Griffin to become editor of the Daily Mail promising ‘more diversity’, with Andy Gray taking over as chief women’s writer, and Jeremy Clarkson covering international diplomacy. Former Mail editor Paul Dacre declares new team ‘a bunch of liberal lefties’.
