Glenn Milne and others laud the fact the My School website has received 9 million hits as if that proves anything. A giant non sequitur. What was that about the bigger the lie, the easier to sell?
Almost certainly a big proportion of viewers of the My School site are ex students looking at how their old school comes out, not least to see if they have been defamed?
Certainly the big media/press notion that high circulation is by definition in the public interest or sound policy is a classic non sequitur.
One only need mention false nude pictures of a candidate in the last Qld state election to know high sales does not make for valid information. Or cars slowing to look at a car wreck. Or high rating YouTubes: Look at the multi million popular postings. Some of it wonderful. Much of it junk and or deliberately frivolous like the 135 million monster above. And frivolous is a word PM Rudd might be careful about given all the accusations of shallow talk.
And PM Rudd is gambling My School is not junk by calling for an expansion of the site. Or maybe that is to fix the junk before the audience twig?
