28 Responses to My Media: Chris Barrie

  1. It’s got a decent TV guide on Saturday. Just saying… However, I often find myself looking at the Richard & Judy column in the Express just to see what inane babblings Madeley is spouting to the world. How they stay employed anywhere is a mystery to me.

    Craig Charles: crack addiction.
    Robert Llewellyn: fat slur.
    Danny John Jules: binmen knife attack (allegedly).
    Chris Barrie: racist.

    Whatever next?

    >Chris Barrie: racist.

    Erm…allegedly?

  4. G&T Admin

    I think the purchase of the Daily Mail is enough evidence to not require an allegedly.

  5. G&T Admin

    I thought other evidence suggested he was a Times reader?

  6. Apropos of nothing, here are two scans from Heath’s cartoon in the most recent Mail on Sunday :


  7. > Whatever next?

    Hattie Hayridge: people trafficker?

  8. Norman Lovett: Miserable Bastard.

  9. Surely not!

  10. Shocking revelation, I know.

    Go on, give him his football back.

  11. > Apropos of nothing, here are two scans from Heath?s cartoon in the most recent Mail on Sunday

    And how did you have a Wail on Sunday to scan that, hmm?

  12. I didn’t scan it. A friend, who was at his parents’ at the time, did. He’s also written a letter of complaint, and intends to take it to the Press Complaints Commission if there’s no follow-up.

    I thought you’d jokingly scanned in some ’50s comics or something. Jaysus.

  14. >I thought you?d jokingly scanned in some ?50s comics or something. Jaysus.

    Seconded. Those look like caricatures out of World War II-era propaganda.

  15. He buys car and bike magazines! Listens to football! He must be a national front member…

  16. Well at least it wasn’t Mohammed. OR the winner of a French pig squealing competition.

  17. >I thought you?d jokingly scanned in some ?50s comics or something. Jaysus.

    Seconded. Those look like caricatures out of World War II-era propaganda.

    … pretty much the point he made in his letter, yeah. His basic argument was “I understand the artist is a 70-something, set-in-his-ways bigot, but don’t you have editors for this kind of thing?”

  18. Chloe Annett: sex tourist?

  19. The paper we found after being given Chris’ room at DJ 2006 was the Independent, can’t believe he’s a big fascist!

    It’s interesting how many people read newspapers who *don’t* actually know or care what their political line is. I’ve been aware of what papers have what editorial line since I was in my early teens – but so many people seem to have no clue!

    He may well just buy it for other reasons – maybe it has good coverage of some other stuff he’s interested in. But it’s always difficult to reconcile it in your head when someone so important to the likes of Spittng Image – even as an actor, rather than a writer – wouldn’t be politically aware enough to realise the Mail is evil. Because it really, really is – it goes far beyond just having politics I disagree with.

  21. The funniest thing about the Mail is that they like to think they’re above the ‘gutter’ press when that’s all they sell really.

    The sickness of the press IMO can be summed up quite neatly with today’s story of the 12-year-old boy who fell to his death on a school ski trip. Reading the Mail’s online version of it here, the whole incident just seems to be peddled like a freakshow.

    The worst part of it, for me, is –

    ‘Hayden’s elder sister Nicola today tearfully returned to the family home in Gillingham.

    Clearly devastated by her brother’s death, she was too distressed to speak.’

    Yeah, and surely you’re adding to her distress by trying to get her to make a comment! What do they want, blood? I just don’t like the way the whole thing reads. Not that it’s the Mail that are the only ones that do this.

  22. The Mail and the Express are both tabloids pretending to be broadsheets.

    But as John says, that’s far from the worst crime in the Mail’s history.

  23. There was no point buying The Express after they lost Garfield.

  24. I think they LOVE being the paper that everyone slags off. The fact that Alan Partridge thinks it’s ‘arguably the greatest newspaper in the world’ says it all really. It’s basically a paper for people who think they’re above everybody else. Written by twats for twats. Surely an application form for a position there would be made up of just one question – ‘Are you a complete and utter bastard?’

  25. >The Mail and the Express are both tabloids pretending to be broadsheets.

    I get completely what you mean (delusions of grandeur), but the only defining feature of a broadsheet is its size.

  26. Altogether now;

    Chloe Annett: Foaming Twat.
