No News Today [May. 20th, 2018|09:33 am]
Tony Grist
My mother kept asking who the couple on the front page of her Sunday Telegraph were so I took it off her and started turning pages to find something that wasn't about the Royal Wedding. And I turned the page and I turned the page and it wasn't until I reached page 24 that I found what I was looking for.

"Clearly nothing happened in the world yesterday," says Ailz. "So thank goodness for the Royal Wedding. Without it the journalists would have had nothing to write about."

It isn't that nothing happened. It's that it's something at least pleasant in a world where everything else seems to suck. I didn't watch - no tv - but Harry has always been my 'favorite' .

The media wants us to think everything sucks. Bed news sells (or so they think) and good news doeesn't. An event like the Wedding gives the game away. Suddenly the bad news disappears because there's no room for it- and actually it wasn't so very significant anyway.

Harry has been allowed to be real. He got to be a playboy and a soldier and have adventures- and consequently we feel as if we know him. William- as future king- has been cossetted and protected and so comes across as rather dull- which may or may not be fair. I strongly suspect the media were told "You can have as much access as you like to Harry so long as you leave William alone."
