The director of Spain’s national library, Biblioteca Nacional, has whipped up a storm in the teacups of publishers by stating that she doesn’t read newspapers.
“I haven’t read the press for two months. I don’t watch television or listen to the radio because the tension they express upsets me so much I can’t work,” said Rosa Regas.
A quote on Roy Greenslade‘s blog, attributed to Daniel Patrick Moynihan, rightly puts some perspective on the rage against the gloom and doom purveyed by the papers.
“If the newspapers of a country are filled with good news, the jails will be filled with good people.”
