Bryn Estyn : I Heard A Boy’s Screams

Guest post by Mammon

Apologies for the title but it got you didn’t it?

Oh yes it did :)

That’s my point, it works on the brain.

This is short and to the point, someone left a copy of the Daily Post in my kitchen and I picked it up on my way to the loo. Five minutes of scanning and all of a sudden I saw the reason for this post. You wouldn’t have had the opportunity to see it if it wasn’t for the Internet. I am a busy bee but had to take time out and share this evidence of how the MSM work.

Is there an agenda here?

I’m slightly baffled that such clear evidence is available. Any way I’d like to thank David Powell for the chance to show his readers’ what they’re paying for when they purchase this useless constructed rubbish. The picture below was on page 11. You’ll see the red headline “Abuse Probe Revives Bad Memories”. Beneath the frame of the picture are the words “I heard a boy’s screams”… , for no reason he leaves out the quotes.

Read it again. What are you supposed to see? What does the writer expect his reader to read? Then it continues “People have no idea what goes on in care homes” (quotes added). Again; what does the author want us to see, to interpret and to digest?

The rest of the story is irrelevant.  The ‘Investigation : Bryn Estyn’ photo is just there to catch your eye. It’s waffle about how the lady never experienced anything in her “traumatic years” in care during 1952-1965. The piece got my attention and I thought about it for some hours. I asked myself, what the hell is this story is about? Some lady in care sixty years ago who………………who…who what? Why her? Why now? I still don’t know but another glance at page four gave a clue of some sort. Keith Towler our very own Children’s Commissioner for Wales gets a whole full page to himself :

 There’s also a small but significant piece about a new child care initiative :

The ladies name was rare so Mr Google was consulted and he came back with these:

• Woolly cardigans go to needy

Grandmother accuses Cartrefi Conwy of damaging her home

David Powell can hardly deny knowing his source can he? It just made me want to share what I consider to be a perfect example of News construction. Why now? Ask yourself.

Have a Happy, and wide awake, New Year and a long life.

  1. I’m guessing your biggest mistake was picking up and reading something purporting to be a ‘newspaper’ in the first place. Still, ten out of ten for exercising some critical thinking over this (ahem) ‘journalism.’ Too many folk these days don’t make the effort…

    • It practically smacked me in the face. I didn’t mention the other full page spread on pg 7 about the 9% of community service sentences being ignored by the offenders and probation alike and how the new police commissioner is gonna deal with it..blah blah. Its best described as a local criminal justice flyer/leaflet. To be honest if the local CJS didn’t supply any copy this rag would be out of business within months. There’s only so many mortgages you can advertise isn’t there? I know a few who depend on it for wages and they’re not all aware of what they are. They think they’re a community journo with the chance of making big one day. I suppose we all have dreams. Bless
