It’s The Times. Tip your head back and look down your nose at anything that isn’t royal. The Times in a nutshell.

My first thought was “They have got to be kidding.” What a horrid angle – agree with all of you – this reeks of Rita Skeeter!

Wow – everyone is right – what a weird series of articles. Some very negative, and the different writers were so very contradictory. The “wizarding news” tabloid section makes Dan out to be some wild “bad-boy”, while another section comments that he’s very grounded spending money only on real estate and art. One section calls Rupert clunky and not too bright, another calls him sweet. The movie critic doesn’t like Dan’s acting (but the same critic calls Goblet of Fire the best movie), but another writer says he’s honed his craft and noted his “critically acclaimed” acting in Equus. Meanwhile it’s an all-out love fest for Emma Watson (who I like, this is not her doing at all), who is called the most phychologically interesting of the leads, gorgeous, smart, etc., etc. – just an odd bunch of articles. The English press is very strange indeed – at least here in America, our tabloids are tabloids and the regular press is not.

The Times and Sunday Times these days are not what they were—along with a couple of UK tabloids, they are owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns the New York Post and Fox Television, I believe. Far from pro-royal, they are anti, while being pretty right-wing. They are also very anti-BBC, partly I suppose because of Murdoch’s own media interests.

It seems some forms of media can’t truly appreciate Harry Potter – or the actors. We can;t expect any different, I mean, that’s what Rowling showed us with hags like Rita Skeeter and the Daily Prophet. The news always has a biased slant to it, and, as Dumbledore once said, “The Prophet is bound to say the truth once in a while, if only accidentally”, so we can take heed from Rowling’s words that the media really is quite stupid.

I didn’t know Rupert Murdoch owned The Times until today. I knew he owned The Sun and The New York Post. Both are tabloid rags. That may explain the tone in much of this article. I wonder if he’s hired Rita Skeeter.

Ahhh – Rupert Murdoch – well, that explains everything.

LOL! Looks like someone at The Times read the comments.

Images were the only decent the supplement. Most of Leaky’s readers could have done a far better job than their ‘journalists’.
