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?

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.
