So Why Did You Do it ?

A line from a folk song questioning the motives of a Soldier who took the life of an innocent. I don’t know the real in’s and out’s of that tragedy but once again I look at the tabloid news papers in this country and ask the same question.
Over the weekend we have seen two tragedies. The first was on Saturday during the Spurs v Bolton game where Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch, as far as we know he is still fighting for his life. The second happened on Sunday at the end of the Scottish Communities Cup Final. Kilmarnock and Liam Kelly should have been celebrating the greatest day of their lives. Unfortunately Liam’s dad Passed away after having a heart attack near the end of the game.
The easiest and most decent thing to say after these tragic events is rest in peace. You let the family grieve . You give them space to try and come to grips with the loss of a loved one. That is called human compassion, what we all expect from each other.
Sadly The Sun has seen fit to lead with pictures of Fabrice Muamba struggling for life and Liam Kelly distraught at the end of the Cup final.
Liam Kelly, his father and Fabrice Muamba mean nothing to these animals. They are nothing more than dead meat stories to  be sold at a profit for the Murdoch Empire.  Just as the 96 were good copy.
The Daily Record are no better. They will just as easily flog any ones hardship to turn a pound.
The Celtic Network have always asked that Celtic supporters consider where they spend their money. We have always took the position that it is better for people to make their own judgements. That has not changed.
However we now ask Celtic fans to stop buying  these rags. We are calling for a boycott of all “Tabloid” newspapers. Not because they are anti Celtic but because they are parasites who suck the life out of society for profit and give nothing back but prejudiced bile.
New media is here and it is free. You can choose to enjoy it or ignore it. What you don’t have to do is buy it and fund 3rd rate churnalists and Right wing media Moguls.
Think about it.

  1. Spot on James! You have to ask yourself, if the shoe was on the other foot and it was the person writing the story or taking the pictures who was affected by the event if it was acceptable to them to have it broadcast in this way! Shocking!
