'Government makes interviews boring,' says Sky News sage
According to this article in today's Guardian,
Sky News political editor Adam Boulton has accused the government of launching a "second generation of spin" by boring TV viewers to death.Now, it happens that I occasionally watch a local TV channel, charming in its insularity. It takes a news feed from Sky. I have to admit that Sky frequently gives the most up-to-date information on a breaking story. For that, it is to be commended.
However, I would raise three major criticisms:
1. News items do not need noisy fanfares and accompaniments. The intrusion is very irritating and totally unnecessary.The notion of pots, kettles and black is quite unsuitable here. Morons in glass houses and stones is far more appropriate.
