It would seem that, according to the world’s media, we are all going to be wiped out by fatal bird flu any day now. The world is on the verge of a pandemic that will scour the planet clean of humanity.
What a bunch of idiots!
Why is it they can only sell a worst case scenario? Nothing much doing on the celebrity gossip front and England haven’t won anything lately, so let’ spread a little gratuitous panic, shall we? Mmm, yes, that would be fun. And what’s more, it will get everyone tuned in whilst we indulge in moronic speculation and display our ignorance like a shroud for, after all, there is no such thing as good news.
For some reason, the fuss they made about us all dying of SARS a few years ago springs to mind…
Perhaps if we’re really lucky, H5N1 will mutate into a form which only targets news readers and journalists!!!
