BBC News Observation

Listened to the Today programme over the weekend. They covered the Greta Thunberg/climate strike in Bristol by simply reading out verbatim the reports from the Daily Mail and the Sun without comment.

Fuck, and, off.

Huge? It is a bit of grass, they didn’t cut down an old growth forest to hold the rally, grass recovers pretty quick.

Also damage to nature? Hardly a natural space, is it.

Literally the only other thing that happens on that “green space” is people having cans after work in August, by which time it will have made a full recovery.

I live in the centre of Bristol. Two things about that damage… 1) they instantly launched a crowdfunder and 2) it doesn’t look like they’ll need it, it’s already growing back.

BBC News vexes me a lot these days, but I will still fight for the corporation as a whole. And the bits we don’t like… you’ll never be able to try and improve them once they’re gone for good.

I’d heard throughout the week that this week’s moral maze was going to be discussing islamophobia. So obviously knew that was going to be awful (the moral is always awful).

Didn’t realise until I was driving home that this was the lineup

idk if there is a ‘fair fucks to the BBC’ thread but, fair fucks to the BBC

what’s wrong with Cadfael? All I remember is that he had a funny bald bit on his head. I was quite young.

“A national crisis, that emphasises the need for the changes you wanted to make, is no time to discuss said changes!!”

Late in the day, I know, but I thought it wouldn’t do any harm to amend the thread title to reflect ^this.

I know the answer to this very reasonable question actually for once has a very resonable answer but, what the fuck BBC there isn’t anything else going on in the world.
