The post about the recent NHS story got more page views in one day (over 1000) than anything else I've written about.
I'm interested in what constitutes news. By its very nature it is not ordinary. I remember a lecturer telling us that he was pleased and reassured when the newspapers reported that a vicar had run off with a schoolgirl, as it was only newsworthy because it wasn't the norm.
It's easy to forget this, and begin to believe that what we read in the newspapers and listen to in the media is the norm - or the 'real world' as it's sometimes put.
Does what you read/hear in the media represent your day to day life, your real world?
For your sake I hope not!
