A penny finally drops

I was amused to read this story yesterday on EU Referendum

Struggling with that concept, I have to admit that I have had enough. From tomorrow, I am no longer going to buy a daily newspaper, breaking the habit of a lifetime. But enough is enough. Something has to be done about the media and, if the "customer is king", a customer has spoken.

I came to the same conclusion about 20 years ago, when the idea of a Saturday supplement had ceased to be a figment of the Grauniad's April Fool's machine and became reality, back when the first glimmers of the meeja-celeb culture were starting to show.

It's a pity that the Economist is rather unsound on the EU, and is rather milder than it was back then when I started reading it.
