Apathy frustrates reporter's efforts to fill space
Express-Times | Submitted by: Geräuchertes
"Since 9-11, you sort of rate your disasters," says one randomly questioned passerby in this montage of "man on the street" interviews by a newspaper determined to cover the Columbia incident, despite the lack of actual information - and the public's lack of interest. "Nobody was even talking about it. There was a rumor that Eminem died, that was the big thing today. We found out it wasn't true." The article then proceeds to explain that "Eminem is the edgy rap artist popular among young people."

Take a holiday in scenic Baghdad!
The Age | Submitted by: Xiao Li
"The first thing you see as you cross into Iraq is Saddam Hussein, smiling and striding purposefully towards you. The entire party suddenly rises as one, terrified. How can he possibly be here in person to greet us? But then you see another Saddam standing next to him, and another, and then you realise that Saddam appears to be everywhere. It's a classic Middle East phenomenon: the men carefully craft themselves to look uncannily like the leader."

As much freedom as the State will allow...
Spiked | Submitted by: Tobermory
Orwell would have a field day: "This trend has important implications for free speech. The arguments for new privacy rights rest on the notion that free expression and privacy rights need to be 'balanced' against each other. This effectively means that there is no such thing as a right to free speech - or, indeed, a right to privacy. The right to privacy has been redefined as a state protection from hurtful public discussion; and the right to free speech has become qualified by restricting speech that may cause offence. The decision about what can and cannot be said in the public realm about people's private lives is an arbitrary one, taken by a judge."
