The last 12 months have been a mixed bag for Morrissey with comments about his media portrayal and his thoughts on the Norway massacre among others being taken badly or out of context. Claiming we live in dumbed down times He is quoted as saying “Everything – news media, music, music magazines – are presented with the assumption that the people as a whole are utterly thick.”
