and while we're on the subject of the dirty media
I do not think the subject of the destruction of human life and happiness by the lying filth who pass themselves off as journalists (eh, Mr Murrill of the Reading Evening Post?) has been better written about than here by the late Heinrich Boll, which I have just read in English translation on the recommendation of a colleague who is a German scholar. Although my progress in German has not been very fast lately I have made a pledge to myself to have read it in German by this time next year. The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum was published in 1975. Not much published then stands up to today's reading. Hein?
