Dream wedding drowns out bad news

Two billion viewers worldwide are expected to tune in to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29. More important news could be buried in all the excitement, the left-liberal daily The Guardian fears: "As national and international networks clear their schedules in order to cover every aspect of the happy event, 29 April is no doubt seen by many people in power as, in the immortal words of New Labour spin doctor Jo Moore, 'a good day to bury bad news'. News teams will therefore have to be alert to some big stories - from unpopular policy announcements to embarrassing statistics - being slipped past them in the haze of confetti. The royal wedding is a moment in history deserving of coverage, but momentous and significant events around the world will not stop happening, even with a third of its population watching telly."
