Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This morning I saw an interview with an Austrian government representative who tried to bring this point across very carefully, and had to repeat it multiple times to a clearly dissatisfied public TV journalist.

this is unfortunately becoming the norm, constant leading questions that breathlessly attempt to corner the subject into going beyond what he says into speculative territory of what the worst thing that could/will happen would be. there's a kind of obsessive compulsion to amp everything up into the scariest possible level.

us? but we are only reporting! media is out of control in the same way big banks or the MIC are. coincidentally...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
