We gave up on newspapers a few years ago, we can get all the news we need either off the net or by watching the box.

There`s a free paper that available at train stations, can`t remember what its called, but i usually bring one or two copies home each week for lining the litter tray.

What part of the media exposed the MPs expenses scandal?
And what part of the media exposed the current scandal?

Apparently today in US a group of the News Corps shareholders have filed a lawsuit claiming the Murdochs are not fit and proper people to be running the company.
This gets better and better Grin

Thats a small step in the right direction Grin

Do we need newspapers? Yes, I think we do. Do we need newspapers like the NoTW and its kind, and sadly now The Times (happy to publish government progaganda rather than get to the truth)
then no.

Do we need papers like the Guardian yes. This particular newspaper has made be buy newspapers again, something I never thought I would do. I've also started getting 'i' occasionally now which is more of a overview of the news but its free of made up stories.

True enough, not that I'd bother with the Guardian either but their information was sourced somewhere and the stories could just as easily have been brought to the public's attentention via other, nion-newspaper, media.
If all newspapers disappeared tomorrow, in a month's time most people would forget about them.

Hmm...but I seem to remember the Telegraph also tried to crucify George Galloway for something he didn't do...
I also seem to remember that the Guardian, like the craven BBC, fully supported the invasion of Iraq at the time (though they've changed their tune a bit now it's become more fashionable, and indeed right and proper, to deplore the invasion).
I have to say that I read both the Guardian and Independent (on the internet) but I still take some of their stories with the same pinch of salt as when I read the Daily Mail (of course, I only read the Daily Mail... for a laugh - it's really just the same garbage that you get in the Sun and Mirror, only dressed up a bit and pretending to be a serious paper.

Nice enough idea if you like that kind of thing, Pablo but on-line petitions aren't worth the paper they're not written on.
12 Jul 2011 9:29AM
It is better to get people to write individually to their MP whatever rather than sign a petition.

Several thousand letters clonking on his desk over a short period of time have more impact than half a dozen or so sheets of paper arriving at once, bear the thousand signatures.

Quite Jas.
In fact on-line petitions don't even arrive unless someone opens the appropriate window.
And even then, they're meaningless.

Which by all accounts, means they lose out on approx 9m each year! Don't think it will be long before something sticks against this rag also and it ends up in the same graveyard as it's sister!!

If you write to the plonker IN the ministerial seat, IT WILL BE forwarded to YOUR MP he has to write the question to the minister and reply to you!

this petition has almost 200,000 signatures we are governed by an almost hung parliament, if daves mate decides to eject dave will be short of a vote or 2, mostly the condemn's coalition use knee jerk government, so this HUGE un published petition will weigh heavily

so 2 mins or pick on me? if you have 2 mins (really 1 will do!) if not pick nit holes and vote for "mudrock the hacker" like jabba the hut but in slime

ps a hung parliament "one on each lamp post!"
