This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

Just thought of another: Radio & TV presenters
Some are good - intelligent, articulate, interesting.

BUT, if the Radio 1 breakfast show is the "top seat" in broadcasting, how the fuck is Chris fucking Moyles the best possible person they could've chosen out of the entire country? And what about the One show? For fuck's sake - It's BBC 1. Is there really nothing better they could be doing with BBC1's airtime than have Adrian Chiles fat face flapping about on it? I find it hard to believe that there is no-one else in the whole country who could go on TV or Radio and be less brain-meltingly annoying or mediocre. Just find two or more actually interesting people and sit them in a room with a camera, it's not like there's not enough shit going on in the world that you have to fill airtime with stories about funny shaped vegetables.

Which also leads me to this: Why the hell does the media feel the need to pander to the lowest common denominator rather than fly slightly higher in the hope that it might encourage the masses to engage their brains a bit further.

Why do Radio 1 wander out onto the street with a mic to ask braindead twunts their opinion on the news when they always get the same response: "Well, y'know, I fink, it's, um, it's quite bad, innit? And they, um, should like, um, do sumfink about it?"
Why not ask someone who has a brain for an actually interesting opinion or analysis so that the inarticulate twunts might learn something, even subconsciously.

I thought the stated purpose of most media (pr0n aside) was to inform, educate and entertain.

Moyles is a turd
but I dont get why people hate Adrian Chiles (Child/Childs?) so much.

Anyone care to explain?


ps - the Nor'n Irish bird on The One Show is delish.

I have to agree that there are times when I get pissed off with Moyles' self-promotion and his sycophantic cum-guzzling 'crew', however on the whole, I quite like his show.

I wholeheartedly agree though when it comes to Fearne Cotton & Greg James (I had to look their names up). What a pair of talentless, pointless fucktards. I'd cheerfully twat the pair of them and replace their 'shows' with white noise. It can't be any worse.

And don't even mention that Scottish bint-whore Edith-fucking-get-innnnn-Bowman.

Ever since I lost my iPod out on the piss, and being told by the wife to wait until Christmas instead of buying a new one, I have taken to listening to Radio 2 and Radio 4 when I'm out and about.

It could just be that I'm an old fart, however?

must have been seriously starved of attention as a child

Well I don't think he was starved of anything else, the fat cunt. Despite my earlier post, I DO get fucked-off listening to him banging on about how he's lost SO much weight, and his cum-guzzling crew telling him how well he's done.

He's still a fat cunt. Stop eating the pies and sweets and you wouldn't be such a fatty-boom-boom. That stroll up that mountain made fuck-all difference. He must have been chewing on Snickers all the way up and Mars on the way down. Fat fuck.

Yes, I'm on a diet. What?

Ratings. That's the simple answer to every question you've asked. Moyles is popular, people like him. I like him. Childs and the one show attract loads of viewers, though on that one I'm not sure why. They interview dozy individuals on the street is because most of our country, and therefore most of their viewers, is made up of similar dozy individuals. Focus groups (and ordinary people in pubs and office canteens) say they don't like or trust expert opinion, and that in a democracy, the views of the man in the street are what should count, and they genuinely believe "I think it's a disgrace, the Government should do something about it" is cutting through all the "bullshit" that would be talked by experts, and getting to the heart of the matter.

Media has never been about educating and etc, it's always been about selling advertising space, and the BBC is drawn in to needing to compete by numpties who think that unless they produce the same populist crap produced by all the other free tp air channels, then they shouldn't get public money. Ironically, that means that public money is spent on giving them something they would have got for nothing anyway, rather than a genuine alternative choice. This wonder, we call The Market. It makes all things good.

If you want to.know where to place the blame, it's our crappy education system. Those people really ARE paid to educate, and yet unthinking sheep is what they turn out. And I reckon they should....err....y'Know, do somthing abaht it.
