Tee Hee

On an Overgrown Path:

Norman Lebrecht recently roared “Until bloggers deliver hard facts and estate agents turn into credible critics, paid-for newspapers will continue to set the standard as the only show in town”. So on Saturday it was good to see a paid-for newspaper setting the standard and covering the wonderful music education programme in Venezuela.

I am the first to agree that classical music needs all the exposure it can get, and also that our children need all the music education they can get. But, equally, don't readers of the paid-for newspapers need all the hard facts they can get on The System behind these glowing articles?

It's the bit in the middle which is so wonderfully delicious. The Groan published a huge panegyric to a PR stunt.
