  1. As a major shareholder in a private company which specialises in architecture ,town planning and urban design and which is committed to sustainable development I am very interested in the way the present media, which probably has’t experienced a recession is reporting the current situation. I know this is boring ,but when you have 350 staff and 1000 mouths to feed it is important to us and to 1000’s of other private companies. It seems to me that the print media is reporting everything in an apocaliptic way and is using gloomy language about everything. Is this because the media is based in London where every trend is exagerated. All I suggest is a bit more balance and moderation in language. , and reporting a bit more good news.For example, the cairman of Nomura bank said a few days ago that the liquidity crisis had now passed and been resolved, but this nuggett received scant coverage. Also the shareholders of RBS vote today on the injection of £20billion into the bank. This is not described as a recapitalisation but a humiliating bailout. The way todays events are reported and the laguage used forms the agenda and background to tomorrows events.
