Self fulfilling prophecy

Well you can say what you like about the latest financial crisis, at least it is keeping down the numbers of stabbings.  If you remember when knife crime was in the news, the number of stabbings actually increased as a result of the hysterical media coverage.  Every detail was explained, right down to where the knife was probably bought (I am not sure, but, they may have even had a link to QVC to show the different ranges of knives, I didn’t watch all the channels).

God only knows, what the reports of a dishevelled Pete Doherty, taking drugs and yet still able to date a beautiful supermodel, did to our youth.  I know what I would be doing if I was a horny impressionable teenager.  Don’t even get me started on how much extra work Kate Moss has picked up after the public were informed of her drug habit.  When is the media going to realise most people out there are unable to distinguish between the real news and a “claims direct” advert.  The news should be just that, “The News”, and not, a “Aren’t you glad you’re not Britney” show.

Anyway, six months of banging on about the credit crunch, and now we are all surprised that the financial markets are in turmoil. 
Here is the answer, I say don’t dwell on bad stuff; let me run the news; there would be a lot more skate boarding dogs and kittens up trees.  Come on, think about it, a squirrel that can actually water ski, you don’t see that everyday do you?  Of course, that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.
