The fantastic John Pilger looks at the pitiful role that the media took during the Iraq 'war' attack and the recent history of media manipulation in the modern world. (Excellent but slightly depressing esp the horrible excuse of a person from the BCC)

The Shock Doctrine is the latest documentary from acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom, co-directed by Mat Whitecross. Based on Naomi Klein's bestselling book, The Shock Doctrine argues that America's 'free market' policies have come to dominate the world through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

Both the film and the book argue that governments all over the world exploit natural disasters, economic crises and wars to push through radical free market policies. Klein calls this 'disaster capitalism' and in her view, disaster capitalism is as effective as psychiatric shock therapy at wiping our collective memory.

The film concludes that the result is often catastrophic for ordinary people and hugely beneficial to big corporations. The documentary also adds to Klein's thesis - which was written before the recent market turmoil - and includes an analysis of how the financial world got into its current troubled state.

West Memphis 3 documentaries now available on youtube. I'm watching them again - finding the whole thing as fascinating / baffling as the first time I saw it.

Be warned - the content can be very harrowing. Here's a link to part 1:

I listened to the first of this years Reith Lectures from Grayson Perry this morning, "Democracy has bad taste". He is a really engaging and an articulate speaker adeptly putting the knife into large parts of the art establishment; he is also very funny. I'd definitely recommended listening to it. Hopefully the other lectures should be good too.

Parts if it also reminded me of regular debates in this community regarding what constitutes bike porn and who should be the arbiters of good (bike) taste.
