"Can we film the operation...

Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a
Running bet"

Don Henley - Dirty Laundry

Made a fool of yourself on TV? Portrayed yourself as someone thicker than two short planks nailed together with extra thick nails? Taken part in racial bullying on a prime time show? We'll lambaste you in our editorials, harangue you on the front pages and poke fun at you in our letters column.

What's that? Suddenly announced you're dying of cancer (after ignoring abnormal cells on a smear test 18 months ago)? Come this way, we'll pepper the public with how brave you are, pay you mountains of money for "your story", and revere you as though you were the daughter of god himself. We'll make the general public sympathise with your plight, forgetting that three months ago we were organising a flaming mob outside your house.

Whatever your views on Jade Goody, the about face and hypocrisy of the media piss me right off.
