The internet is for porn

This describes beautifully everything that is wrong with so so much of the media and their politician slaves.

I sometimes worry that politicians care too much about these tabloid fulminations, when the editors don’t really mean to be serious, and don’t really have a moral position. If they did, we would all be obliged to investigate the private lives of tabloid editors, to see whether they could really pass judgment on the rest of us.

It’s an op-ed piece written for the Telegraph. Why are we so happy to have faceless editors tell us what we should be alarmed about, and be our moral barometers?  Why are politicians so happy to let the media set the standards? Why are we so busy judging people?
