Over the edge

leave a comment »

I’m writing on apparent ridicule examples of today’s media world. I call it Over the Edge. An example, today, and this story is true, the commentators of NOS television for the Tour de France, told all viewers at channel 1 (public broadcast) that bystanders who hinder the ‘peleton’, the cyclists who race by, must be publicly be trialled through – or by means of – social media. This, as the commentators (and former cycle pro’s) Maarten Ducrot and Herbert Dijkstra)  is already happening in Belgium (and not just in the case of cycle races); the public as the judge and the audience as the executor. For me, this example is very much over the edge!

Do you have any examples I might use? Please comment on this post.
