Lazy journalism really bothers me and THIS
article from the BEEB
website got right on my tits. Not only
is the story a bit of a nothing, there's some high~lariously
erroneous 'facts' in there. First up, the story itself - a sequel to KUNG FU PANDA
, according to the headline, is "in the pipeline". Now, as revealed in the story, it is not
. All that has been said is that "talks" will take place in the next couple of months, hardly
concrete confirmation. What was
confirmed was that there will definitely
be at least
one more sequel to MADAGASCAR
should have been the story. But that, dear reader is not
what irked me so much - even though that in itself is typical of UK journos making a story out of nothing.

According to the article Kung Fu Panda
, in global ticket sales, is DREAMWORKS'
"most successful movie" and has "surpassed the SHREK franchise". Now let me address a couple of points here: 
Dreamworks have 4
more successful films; and 
Two of these films are SHREK 2
and SHREK THE THIRD
. In no
way has Kung Fu Panda
surpassed the Shrek
franchise and in no
way is it the company's most successful movie. What is
true is that Kung Fu Panda
has surpassed the original Shrek
flick in sales and that is perhaps what this numb~nut
was so poorly trying to convey.

, it is just supremely
lazy not to check these facts out - check out BOX OFFICE MOJO or IMDB
for two independent sources. I did it in about 5 seconds and even my own brain told me how
wrong this sorry 'story' was. And, as I previously stated, I use the word 'story' quite wrongly just as the BBC
use 'facts' in a most misleading way.
