The mad world of news media
I was wondering today why the BBC news on both TV and radio led with a story about badger culling? I know I could be accused of being a city focused "townie", but how is that even a news story? And why is a higher priority than other stuff that is still happening in the world? War, famine, crime, even stories of people doing good stuff?
Seems bonkers to me - and I'm not naive about these things (I did media studies at uni...)

Meanwhile happy July 4th to anyone who stops by from the USA (Although as a Brit should I really be cheering for that?)

I live in the countryside and in 2 1/2 years I've seen one badger. What a menace.
