Warning: Banality Overload

So I woke up this morning and, as usual, flipped on the news to see what the latest was.

Sky News were running on the collapse of the Dow, the 9.6% drop on the Nikkei, and the downgrading of General Motors. It was their lead story, and after a brief run-through of other news they were straight back onto it as a rolling story, with multiple correspondents reporting from various locations.

I quickly flipped over to Pravda to see how they were spinning it.

To find Susannah Reid and her cohort with guests on the sofa, earnestly discussing the merits of putting coffee-shops in municipal libraries.

At which point my head exploded.

Crisis? What crisis?
