Is this what they mean by the media being London-centric?

I think it’s more “random YouTuber reads out press release over random stock footage to get clicks”…

This isn't a completely irrelevant photo, but I found it amusing.

I received my regular email today from Great Rail Journeys promoting their latest holidays. This holiday was highlighted as part of their 'Great Scenic Railways of the USA' issue.  Certainly looks scenic, but what can you actually see from the train?  Nowt but trees lining the railway!
