Stephen Glover is still away, so I'm still writing his column for The Independent. Irony of intense ironies it is called 'Media Studies.' This week, having overcome the shock, I take a look at Media Secretary Jeremy Hunt's emerging plans for the future of local television. I could not resist including a reference to one of my favourite spoofs on TV news culture. If you have not seen Anchorman, the Legend of Ron Burgundy, I recommend it very highly. Ron is a fictional representative of that breed of local TV bunnies who are so thick they will read anything that appears on the autocue.
