    They see stuff on news and start to think if itís all a conspiracy ffs
    Talking of news just heard 3 o'clock news on BBC radio 2

    Lead story they were all over it like a rash but they didn't comment one way or the other. Instead they had a sound bite from the political editor of the Sun.

    No bias of course.

    I think they should do a better job of social distancing themselves, but their job is not to be squeaky clean, its to bring us the news.

    In your example, the robber is the person who made robbing illegal in the first place.
    Important footage? Important in what way? To give your confirmation bias free rein?

    The trip made by Cummings may or may not have exposed members of his family to the risk of infection but, if it did, the number of people involved was probably low. Compare that to the number of people involved in the media scrum that you seem to want to turn a blind eye to and everyone else they then associate with. Iím surprised that you could bring yourself to type such twaddle.

    Fed up with this to be honest. I am afraid this is detracting from the main issue. He should have walked yesterday. He is doing a press conference at 4pm in the ROSE GARDEN on DOWNING Street (live on Sky)
    His breaking of the lockdown is an insult to the intelligence of those who have died and family members not allowed at funerals. A lot of people have children with autism and I sympathise with that. However if Jo Public did it they would get fined.
    He breached the lockdown and in his position he should have gone.
    I hope that he has called this to announce his resignation.
    Unfortunately any credibility that our PM had has gone so why should we believe anything that comes out of his mouth. And this is coming from someone who voted for him.

    Exposed just his family? What about the emergency services if they had had an accident en route and they needed to treat at least one patient suffering with Covid. Isn't that a factor? The number involved was probably low? That's OK then!

    Agree about the press pack, as said earlier. Can't use that to deflect Cummings' actions though.

    I'm not pushing for him to be sacked by the way. Just an acknowledgement and apology from him that he made a huge mistake/poor choice whilst many suffered by keeping to the rules and a suitable admonishment from No. 10. Instead, no apology and a rewriting of the rules. Let's all now follow our "instincts" guys!

    I agree with puppy both media and Cummings are in the wrong it’s no use trying to say ones ok and ones not both were in the wrong and I expect Cummings and media will never apologise because they are arrogant

    Interested to hear your views on these stories Mr Top as an old pal.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52798032

    Just wondering like...what would you say to these people yourself?

    (Just thought you might be looking in on this thread as you were on earlier so not trying to drag you in)

    Also please notice that this comes under "uk politics" before you say it aint political this.

    Hoping of a reply but not expecting it by the way

    ???

    Which bit is unbalanced/ biased? Looks pretty factual to me. Real life/ death stories.

    Are you saying these are false stories?
