BBC Headline Was False Today
at 22:37 17 Apr 2020

Someone has taken the BBC for a ride today, their headline feature was not verified. This was run on the Web, TV and Radio all morning.

We pay £3.7 Billion and they can't verify their sources. It would take a 1 minute phone call to verify this source.

They have nearly 30,000 cases already in Michigan, so they take to the streets to protest against social contact restrictions.

£3.7Bn for the BBC

Not good value imo. Too much opinion and subjectivity in the Worldwide Pandemic, other channels much better on what's happening internationally.

The week of constant pictures of empty supermarket shelves on the front pages of websites and news bulletins at the start of March was far from what a public service broadcaster should be doing, coverage is fine promoting issues is another.

I think it is time for the luvvies to earn their money and scrap the licence fee

How to identify stockpilers
at 13:55 20 Mar 2020

My banking app reports my monthly spend by type, my bank knows exactly how much I normally spend in supermarkets. The data should not go to the Government but the banks could text/email/message those who have drastically increased their spend requesting that they cease immediately.

Journalists and the Press in the Crisis

Some of the emotive, inaccurate and opinion based reporting is probably undermining the national effort and costing lives, some of them need to quickly understand their public information role in a crisis.

Meanwhile in The White House
at 17:11 28 Feb 2020

'They think this is going to bring down Trump' - White House chief of staff

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has accused the media of stoking a coronavirus panic because they hope it will "take down" President Trump.

"We took extraordinary steps four or five weeks ago. Why didn't we hear about it? What was going on four or five weeks ago? Impeachment. And that's all the press wanted to talk about," he told a gathering of conservatives on Friday.

He said the press covered impeachment - which saw Mr Trump acquitted earlier in February - because they thought "it would bring down the president".

"The reason they are paying so much attention to it today is that they think this is going to bring down the president, that's what this is all about," he continued.

His advice for the markets, which have been tanking worldwide over virus fears: "Turn off your televisions for 24 hours."

BBC v ITV News
at 22:38 26 Feb 2020

Unusually for me I watched the BBC News at Six and was struck by the political commentary alongside news articles, so I watched ITV News at 10 and found pretty objective and well balanced reporting.

More inclined to use ITV in future if I bother to watch the news.
