And the sauce has a lovely shine.
They didn’t want to hire me so yeah tbh
(Lol jk would I actually have been happy as a journalist? Doubt it)
Would sort of miss the looks of obvious contempt Wareing and Torode shoot him every time he opens his fucking idiot gob, in a way
charlie from casualty
oh wait, is nick “grimmy” grimshaw still on the bbc gravy train? swap him for slater
well it’s day to day news coverage is kind of piss poor but some of the longer form newsnight pieces are pretty good. they’ve issued a few mea culpas about syria and libya, for instance, which are sadly too late but at least show a willingness to sometimes step outside west-ordained talking points. it’s kind of inherantly biased in favour of power but wcyd. question time is now a toilet into which any crank with time to spare on a thursday night can piss with merry abandon, and the way it continually elevates farage and softballs tory crimes will be a stain on its reputation for years to come.
however it also has a lot of good points outside of its news coverage - documentaries, its natural history and science programming, cool free shit on iplayer, the snooker, adam curtis, louis theroux, and of course attenborough.
mixed bag is the beeb, but its highs are truly glorious.
Ah shit, forgot about Lamacq Who Used To Write For The New Musical Express
did you know that he used to write for the NME?
like, regardless of what you think of adam curtis, what other broadcaster would give someone 30 grand to make a four hour documentary about the fall of the global order soundtracked by burial and russian punk songs?
What? Did he really? He must have some delightful anecdotes to share.
Help the BBC
Let them know it’s Christmas time.
Oh, I was going with an Adam Buxton reference but sure
ah yes of course
Nick Robinson is undeniably dreadful, he can’t hide the fact he’s a Tory fanboy however much he tries. And the Today programme is largely unlistenable.
However, I can’t agree that the BBC’s journalism is all terrible, they have some amazing broadcasters; Emily Maitlis and Eddie Mair are both brilliant for a start
Um did anyone actually watch the clip in the OP? Weird how no one ITT is talking about it. It’s insidous as fuck and just proves how the mainstream media in this country exists in this weird white privileged bubble. I’m really really angry about this. As good as Sadiq’s response was I’m not sure they should’ve broadcast the clip.
without the bbc I wouldn’t trust anyone to make good documentaries about the inland waterways
