Big bad wolf like you’ve never seen him before…

Not showing this one to the kids for a while… Good snapshot of where the media is going (outside of the happy valley that is Northern Ireland of today…)

    It’s all a little counter-intuitive.

    Surely the Guardian is one of the main media outlets responsible for the actions and attitudes that it is pretending to mock.

    The liberal, left-wing Guardian naturally takes the side of the Big Bad Wolf. Look at how they tried to protect Saddam.

    ‘Look at how they tried to protect Saddam.’

    Er, really?

    The Guardian actually supported the invasion of Iraq.

    Billy,

    Yea, right! Seems like every influential left-wing writer in Europe, apart from one or two like Hitchens, was opposed to Bush and his policy in Iraq. Maybe the Guardian allowed a token article or two for the war to create an appearance of balance, but, c’mon, to say that the Guardian supported Bush is stretching it a little. Funny enough, I vaguely remember the Observer lending some support, at least until the going got tough.

    But, hey, I stand to be corrected. Honestly! Got a link?

    Not that it’s not beside the point, but here’s the Guardian’s editorial after war was declared:

    Actually, you’re right. I confused the Guardian with its sister paper, the Observer, which supported the invasion. The Guardian was more critical, though it stayed within the acceptable spectrum of opinion.

    But I didn’t say either newspaper ‘supported Bush.’ Unless you think that supporting Bush and supporting the invasion of Iraq were one and the same thing?

    Otherwise, your post is just a generic broadside against ‘left-wingers’ – though one wonders what you even mean by that term?

    go compares, three little pigs more like it, for my 4yo.
