News Sunday 10th April

TV news fails to deliver as per usual. CNN showing a repeat of Larry Ling Live from November 2004. Sky News are showing a repeat of the mornings political show as are BBC 24. The election's well and truly under way. Now the wedding's done and dusted and after all the wall to wall Pope coverage, after the Shiavo coverage...

And of course "Don't mention the War". The issue most definately pushed the back of the current agenda. Saturday's anniversary in Baghdad was barely mentioned in the media. Not even the Independent referred to that hundreds of thousands [well, maybe tens of thousands] gathered in an anti-US demonstration and demanded they leave Iraq. Demands were also voiced for Saddam Hussein's trial to get underway. CNN made a brief mention as did BBC24 in the early hours of Sunday morning.
