Updated Politics - Murphy (two new entries) : Frontpage news?
I noticed that the Netherlands has a tendency to neutralize the news quite a bit. Essentially all the newspapers deemed quality-newspaper by our government, which probably means they own most of the shares of the Press Group that is the mother company to all these newspapers, have a tendency to do this. They sometimes report something that’s really bad, but then they just make pretend all of the negative effects don’t really exist.
I took a trial-subscription of three weeks to “De Volkskrant” figuring I’d document all of the neutral news and what the effects really were of these things happening in the Netherlands during that period. I think I’m not the first to complain that they deny all of the facts, since now they simply don’t print anything anymore. Instead a terrible song, check the page on Politics - Murphy, now adorns the frontpage and all of the newspaper but the frontpage pretty much focuses on foreign news, as if nothing happens in the Netherlands.
And who says what they say happens abroad is even correct?
The government also has a tendency to buy all of the shares of our major airport as well as the airline that it hosts the most. They make sure ticket prices stay low, so we all think everything is okay. They can put up 744MM euros for an airline, but they can’t afford to finance the police, army, healthcare, education, and infrastructure. A bit double isn’t it? With the government, to differ I beg.
