Thanks, BBC

I’m so grateful that we have the BBC. Totally balanced reporting without a hint of the sensationalism that you’ll find it other media outlets. I mean take this, for example:

BBC News most read, 24th September 2013

BBC News most read, 24th September 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m not talking about the first one in the list (I’ll be honest, I haven’t read the article). What caught my attention was the second item.

“Holy shit!” I thought, “what the hell happened there?!”

This, is what:

The actual BBC News headline, 24th September 2013

The actual BBC News headline, 24th September 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the thing: the news article is already quite interesting, thanks! You don’t need to dress it up with sensationalist bullshit.

I used to believe my opening gambit. I used to believe that everything I’d need to know would be covered by the infallible Beeb.

This, by the way, was not my first inkling that the BBC might not be the perfection of news reporting. Annoyed me enough to blog about it though.
