The really vile thing that the Guardian and the others do is publish lists and 'scientific studies'
created by PR firm: the genius list, the wits list, the study showing people who drive SUVs have
better sex lives etc. Alright, I made the last one up, but you get the idea. These are always
created to promote something and they always do bullshit things like put Jeremy Clarkson just after
Oscar Wilde among history's wittiest people. 

Meanwhile, in America, Democratic presidential outsider Dennis Kucinich has been trying to get Dick
Cheney impeached. Nothing about this in the Guardian, nothing on the BBC. For fuck's sake.
