Last night after the BBC News the announcer announced “The Lottery News”. How ironic that the “winning” numbers in the lottery qualifies to be news. It followed the news that 4 firemen were tragically killed in an arson attack in England, and Mexico was experiencing serious floods. But then I suppose that Postman is right — even the “serious” news is just entertainment. And “The Lottery News” is the tragic announcement that millions of deludedly expectant people have just been ripped off for another week.
