Yesterday Russell Brand’s take on the UK News (The Trews, Episode 30) examined how the media dealt with the sudden death of Peaches Geldof. Russell states that a negative undercurrent was portrayed within the media towards Peaches death and the circumstances surrounding it. He goes on to state that this “unsavory” tone goes against the social values we adhere to.
“We need to ensure that characteristics that have proven to be successful in print media: salaciousness, intrusion, condemnation, seductiveness, simplification that kind of ideology can’t prevail because it’s inhuman. It's an inhuman ideology”. – Russell Brand, 8th April 2014
