(h/t a kind reader)
Here's a question: Do you think this:
has anything to do with this, starting next Friday on Amazon Prime?:
It is certainly interesting timing and, as our reader put it, "strange that the BBC would investigate a private company and show the report on all news broadcasts when there is so much going on in the world".
The BBC News reports in question are based on last night's Inside Out. By coincidence I had a delivery from Amazon Prime today and asked the delivery driver whether anyone had mentioned that programme to him. He said one other person had. He also said that he started at 7.30 am, had 50 deliveries to do and was likely to finish at 1.00 pm, so he didn't feel hard done-by. He said he thought the programme had picked extreme examples. I drew the conclusion from this that, therefore, that programme (which I haven't watched) might well be an example of BBC sensationalism.
Whether it was also maliciously motivated BBC sensationalism is another question but a question that merits attention,
