I don’t know quite what the BBC was on yesterday – but the excitement of the past 48 hours clearly got to them.
Whilst covering the emergency debate in Parliament – the BBC also felt it necessary to show images of a jet taxi-ing at Luton… with the dramatic headline “RUPERT MURDOCH IS EXPECTED TO LEAVE COUNTRY” ….
Is that really news? Still it wasn’t quite as mad as the earlier incident - when BBC News channel cut off an interviewee in mid-sentence to “cut to (equally un-)dramatic pictures of ……..David Cameron getting into a car ! – on his way to Parliament…..
Let’s hope the summer recess will allow all those BBC journalists to go and lie down in a quiet dark place for a while. And let’s hope that BSKYB don’t pull the plug on Sky News anytime soon if this is the best the BBC can do.
