You seem to know an awful lot about the "crap" story lines for someone who doesn't watch these programmes. Please tell me how you know they are crap when you don't watch them.
We all know that these programmes do not reflect what happens in our daily lives, but the subject matter covers things that can and do happen everyday, but obviously not with such frequency in one street or village. All tv is fiction apart from the News and fiction is a way of helping people escape from the daily problems they face.
And as for calling people mongols for watching, this is a derogatory term up there with calling people retards and is in contradiction of the Disability Discrimination Act.
So I would suggest that you concentrate on watching what you do like to watch and leave others to enjoy their choice of viewing without labelling them, cos guess what! If you don't, then something is lacking in your life too.
I agree with Dougie, storylines are written by ignoramuses. How they get away it, I have no idea. There once was a storyline in Corrie where Deirdre cashed in her pension and Ken released equity in their house. You cannot cash in a pension unless you are 60 and the value is under a certain amount., I have worked with pensions. Deirdre is meant to be in her 50s. Also, a house worth about £22000, according to Corrie, will not release a lot of money. I did complain to ITV but got no reply.
News is the biggest fiction on this planet, especially if by the BBC which has admitted being really left wing biased. Just look at the coverage of our Dave's refusal to bow in to EU. The way it was reported by a leftie on the Today programme was that now Britain would face disaster. It didn't get any better although abt 80% of the population supports him.
Most TV is fiction.
Again you seem to know a lot about something you don't like or watch.
As for complaining about the accuracy of Deidre cashing in on her pension early, it can be done under the age of 50 in certain circumstances but I should imagine the story line was around the fact that she needed to resort to this rather than covering all the rules of her pension scheme. Now that would be boring.
Can you remember the amount of equity released from Ken's house? I certainly can't, but you seem to know a lot about it. Again the story line will have been about the fact that he needed to raise money so the amount is immaterial really.
The News is exactly what it says on the tin i.e. a factual report on what happened and it is for the viewers to interpret what it means. The programmes you mention are not "The News" they are shows for the so called experts to give their slant on news items and confuse the hell out of viewers with their many conflicting opinions.
I feel really sorry for anyone who watches something they don't like so closely so that they can complain to the programmes producers because they believe it to be inaccurate.
Sad sad individual.
