Filthy Sky News
I watch too much of Sky News, usually from bed in the morning in preference to the BBC 1's oddly co-presented and patronising output targeted presumably at children getting ready for school. But tonight's Sky News disturbed me more then they usually manage. It was a report on Iraq, that moved within a few sentences from describing a mass grave, (presumable of Iraqi soldiers), to the reporter, someone called Alistair Bunkall (appearing intrepid and maybe soon to be honoured in some media award ceremony), describing the Iraqi army as pathetic. It is unusual to hear war-dead, or victims of violence being described as pathetic, but here's the link http://news.sky.com/story/1290489/isis-massacre-tikrit-satellite-images-emerge.
