lamenting the limey limelight

Parting shot of Britain's Tony Blair, erstwhile prime minister and spinmeister:

""The fear of missing out means today's media, more than ever, hunts in a pack.

"In these modes, it is like a feral beast just tearing people and reputations to bits. But no-one dares miss out."

You wish you were feral beastlings, you Brits, but it's more like pussycats or ferrets, depends on the publication.

The Independent which used to run cutting edge foreign news, has their clapped out international editor Leonard Doyle on assignment in Washington getting vox pop on odious Paris Hilton. He ain't no Mika, clearly.
