In a somewhat desperate bid to try and bore myself to sleep I’ve been listening to BBC Question time on iplayer. The plan fell apart in a debate between the justice secretary Kenneth Clarke and the panel over in his own words a “Media Brouhaha” he caused. The phase rung a bell and I remembered hearing the phrase being used in a BBC radio 4 comedy show in which Stokes Croft riot was discussed. I couldn’t help but stitch the two clips together for shits and giggles.
It’s a comment on the sound-bite culture of editing down the news to fulfil alternate agendas. Well that’s my excuse for the shoddy editing anyway. I might have to remember this word for the next time the police start a brouhaha on my street.Follow Simon on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, RSS, or join the mailing list.
