I’ve had BBC’s Breakfast News programme on this morning as usual as I eat my breakfast. All the news I’ve seen has bee “Ian Huntley this” and “Ian Huntley that” to the point where they are repeating themselves endlessly and asking the same questions to different invited “experts.”
There has been little new information. In fact, since yesterday there has been NO new information. So, why are they going on and on about it? OK. So, it WAS a big news story but no longer. It has passed, move on.
This is what I hate about the current sensationalist, tabloid TV journalism. They’d far rather blather on endlessly about the soft parts of a hard news story than even mention anything really important and cover the news in general, which may not be as good at increasing their ratings of lowbrow sheep who would rather see a good blood letting. Well, they lost one rating this morning. I turned the telly off.
Of course, as I’m not in one of the small number of monitored households from which are ludicrously extrapolated the viewing figures, no-one will notice.
