John Cleese: not happy with certain sections of the UK Press

Actor and comedian John Cleese recently unleashed an enraged attack on the British media, during a video interview with the Guardian, while promoting the Disney cartoon Planes.

Cleese was talking about how social media had lessened his dependence on mainstream media to publicise his work. Then he suddenly took a an acid swipe at the British press, although careful to exclude the Guardian, The Independent and the Daily Mirror from his fulminations.

"The rest are the most appalling, depraved, disgusting, amoral creatures you could find anywhere outside of prison," Cleese declared, before adding the following: "And of course many of them are going to be inside a prison soon."
