Why is it al­ways us in the wrong?

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

IT was an­other week of tabloid news­pa­per-bash­ing on Chan­nel 4’s 10 O’clock Live.

We gen­tle­men of the pop­u­lar press, they reckon, are all lazy, prej­u­diced, sexob­sessed privacy-in­vaders with­out a shred of hu­man com­pas­sion.

In other news, Char­lie Brooker said Arab women look like nin­jas, Lau­ren Lav­erne snig­gered at an anal sex in­nu­endo, David Mitchell did a gag about gypsies and Jimmy Carr did one about John Terry.

Those last two were about high-pro­file crim­i­nal court cases. I thought they were still on­go­ing but I guess they can’t be – oth­er­wise the right-on gang would be break­ing the law and putting jus­tice at risk by com­ment­ing.

And that is some­thing only tabloid jour­nal­ists do, right?
