There is nothing paradoxical about the media.
There is however a self serving attitude of the media in general to be a law unto itself, and to try and tap into the zeitgast in order to self aggrandise itself.
All Media in a 'loose' newsworthy reportage is biased and subjective, dependant upon how far that editors feel that they can manipulate public judgement.
Objectivity and restraint are long forgotten values of the British media, which simply moves on to the next target time after time after time.
I feel that there is no Paradox in the media nor it's representations, which when if viewed with a justifiably cynical eye, can simply be evaluated as inconsequential and profit driven, whilst being in a constant state of flux, thrashing around and searching to satisfy the insatiable needs of fools that wish to be spoon fed and led, without the responsibilty of having to take on judgement for themselves.
