I do not wish to be shielded from reality. Yet neither do I wish to be continuously assaulted in my own home with an incessant diet of other people's disasters. Like Lewis, I detest the tokenism of tail pieces which try to reassure me that something, after all, is right with the world. If it has reached a point where even the newscasters are finding the news choices questionable, it must surely be time for policy-makers to act.
