Normal transmission I mentioned yesterday, but what is normal? A read of the papers today and I am pretty much feel a bit down about how much bad news there is around. None of these things warrant a full review, but lets take a look at some of the “low lights”.
Firstly, a man has been charged in the UK for murder but his defence states that he didn’t murder the lady, but instead simply had sex with her corpse or as she was dying of stab wounds. He apparently didn’t notice!
Then we have the trial starting for former NSW Aboriginal Affairs minister Milton Orkopoulous on 34 child sex and drugs charges. Remember this is a seemingly educated man who was a Minister in NSW Parliament.
Is it the power of the media and the drive to see the webpages filled with fresh and new content that this stuff gets highlighted? But perhaps that is not a bad thing as these things are undoubtedly happening and hence it is a mirror of society that historical times didn’t communicate to the people as quickly when the web wasn’t so fluid. Or is it a bit of both in which the media pump more stories out but the stories are getting more frequent and horrific?
