Queensland Inundated by Thin Young Girls
The horrific floods in Queensland have resulted in pointless death, misery and destruction whose effects will outlast those left mourning.
Walking amongst these tragedies - filming, dictating the human reaction, carelessly over-using hyperbole to secure a greater market of bug-eyed public for advertising business - is a remarkably inappropriate phenomenon. Standing in the fore-ground of all this abject horror is an army of extremely well-dressed, young, thin and good-looking girls.
This Aryan race of dainty princesses is called on to interpret, analyse, deconstruct the suffering and loss of whole communities with the vocabulary of an ATM.
One knows not which ugly fact to balk and then vomit at first.
If TV news reporters were recruited from the general public, why don't they look like the people they interview in their vox populi pieces?
