Mistakes, I’ve made a few, but then again, too many not to mention… With apologies to Ol’ Blue Eyes and Paul Anka, I was reminded the other week of one the many both major and minor cock-ups that have littered my media career to date.
In media circles, fake news is the hot topic du jour. It’s not a new phenomenon, of course; fake news has long done the rounds in our newspapers, on radio, on television and online. I’ve been thinking about the perhaps unexpected role footballers’ post-match interviews have played in its current surge.
There’s no doubt High Definition in its ever advancing forms is the universal television viewing future. I’m by no means as confident about 3D…at least not for watching football.
Football and television have long been natural bedfellows. We all remember great World Cup incidents. Why? Because we saw them live, as they happened, along with a massive global audience, on television.
