I am incandescent with rage at the sycophantic BBC coverage, and the sight of British toadies bowing and scraping to this odious man. I thought he was bad before. This puts the lid on it.

Thank you, I was wondering if anyone else had been feeling nausious at the way the BBC covered this. I was eating my breakfast during the "exciting" preparations.

Than I read this:

A Catholic MP has accused the BBC of ‘institutional Christianaphobia’ over its coverage of the Pope’s visit. Mark Pritchard is urging Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt to give the corporation’s director general Mark Thompson a dressing-down for its news stories on Catholicism and Pope Benedict XVI. The Tory, who is vice chairman of the parliamentary group for the Holy See, said the BBC had displayed a form of ‘blatant, anti-Christian bias’.

I think we're getting close to the crossover point where it will become impossible to tell if an article comes from the mainstream press or the Dail Mash and the Daily Mail is actually the funniest publication available. a sort of Satire Event Horizon beyond which all the rules of reality and humour break down and no matter how ludcrous a notion you imagine it spontanioulsy will have happened rendering the concept of satire meaningless
