G20 & the MSM: The Field of "Permitted" Opinion Narrows Further
There has been an astonishing hype in the British media for the last fortnight around the "Riots" which have been predicted for the G20 summit for the last two weeks. It is a fortnight since the first "Riots" newspaper billboards appeared in London. The news bulletins yesterday were dominated by the boarding up of shops and by earnest "security consultants" advising that people in suits are likely to be attacked.
The BBC reported fears that demonstrators would "Create unrest" in the capital.
Actually they won't create unrest. What they may do is manifest the unrest that already exists in the capital.
