The Rarely Wrong


Recommended Posts

This is Alan Reid MP today in Parliament:

 

"...As other hon. Members have said, importantly, local newspapers run campaigns on behalf of their local communities. They are often champions of local communities on a range of issues, which the internet and video media would never replicate. Local newspapers are embracing new technology, and nearly all have web pages these days, but running campaigns and providing information cannot be replicated by the internet."

 

Discuss, with reference to the Rarely Wrong, and the planning application debacle.

 

What a load of old bull:censored:.

The internet has been excellent in allowing people who share a common opinion to gather and share their interests. For example consider the protest march organised by Si on here last year for the planning application. The use of OWTB and the Internet helped spread the word quickly and effectively so the peaceful protest march could be carried out as soon as possible after the planning result was revealed.

 

This guy sounds like he is living in the past. 10-15 years ago, when the internet might not have been freely available to people as it is today, he might have had a point.

 

As for the chron, they have only just re-designed their flaming website!

One day, the right honourable Alan Reid MP is having some problems with his computer at his office in the houses of parliament. He cannot get it to work, so he rings up IT support.

 

IT Support Guy: “Hello, IT support”

 

Right Honourable Alan Reid MP: “Hi, erm, I have a problem with my computer”

IT Support Guy: “Is it plugged in?”

 

Right Honourable Alan Reid MP: “Erm one sec, erm er no”.

IT Support Guy: “Try plugging it in”

 

Right Honourable Alan Reid MP: “Erm er ahh, it’s working now. Thanks”.

 

IT Support Guy: “No problem mate”.

Agreed, if anything the exact opposite is the case! The internet, and particularly forums, can be very influential. It's not always a good thing though. The obvious example (OWTB) is, in my opinion, too close to the club and maybe even too influential. Also forums spread more crap than good, obvious example applies again!

Mr Reid. I invite you to pick a TV station, pretty much any station right now. On it is what is called the greatest example of the power of the New Media there will ever be.

 

Go to bed good Sir. You're time has come.
