F-Bombgate: Media Cares, Most People Do Not

The media circus arising from the Stephen Conroy F-Bomb continues today. The media seem to care a hell of a lot about it.

Problem is, according to a Fairfax online poll, it seems most people do not.

As of 2pm AEDST, December 14, 2011 – the poll which asked the question “How do you rate Stephen Conroy’s F bomb on TV?” saw 72% of people not thinking it was significant.

Indeed, the remaining 28% thought it would either “harm him”, or “not help him”.

The rest thought that it “won’t matter” (37%) or “made him look like a goose” (35%).

Which he probably is.

Maybe the public are becoming intelligent enough to filter out the usual crap from the usual media?

Hope so.
