"...how a drug taking..."
10 August 2017 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

State owned television built to kiss royal behinds and promote whomever is in power. In the spare time promoting Christian values like the love for the king, the love of god or the love of poverty so the aristocrats could save their money for more important stuff.

Jobs does not look like a drug addict. In fact he was quite the opposite: not taking drugs even if his life depended on that. But that is no block for the eager British bureaucrats: he was "a drug taking" person in his youth. And even if he went so low in the production team's fundamentalist take of the world, still Jobs became so big. They could have said it was all the work of the Devil. But that is not acceptable today. So they did the best they could. Which was not much in terms of quality. The same way there is not any noticeable information over the Wikipedia page, apart from some footage paid by the British tax payer for the glory of the State.
