Hail the MSM

There is a shadowy organisation called Globe International, doncha know. Among its principle (sic) backers are a charity set up by the Swedish multi-millionaire Niklas Zennstrom, founder of the internet phone service Skype, and British-born wealth fund manager Jeremy Grantham, whose personal clients include Dick Cheney and John Kerry.

We now know this because of Jason Lewis, Investigations Editor. And there is real glory for you. I wonder if he gets a special badge. Anyhow, the great Jason Lewis tells us all about it in today's edition of The Sunday Failygraph. How lucky we are to have a real, live "Investigations Editor" on the job.

But for his brilliance and his stunning tenacity, we lowly plebs might have had to make do with the Booker column of 27 Mar 2010. Even worse, to eke out our miserable existence, we might have been driven to The Register on 24 March 2010, or even a lowly blog on the same day.

Fortunately, we don't need to rely on such low-grade, derivative sources. Thanks to the brilliance of MSM editors of the likes of Jason Lewis, our meagre lives our now made whole. How can we possibly express sufficient gratitude to him and his wonderful newspaper for reaching down to tell us a fraction of the story, over a year later?

What would we do without the MSM? How could we survive? We should all kneel down and offer a silent prayer, in recognition of our good fortune.
