|'Funtime' Frankie McCamley of the BBC|
Returning to the theme of a post from last month, which marches or protests should the BBC cover and which should they ignore?
I ask again because there have been more marches and protests this weekend (as ever) and the BBC has been all over one of them, sending reporters to cover it and making it BBC News website front page news hours before it even began - namely the marches to commemorate the suffragettes - whilst, at the same time, sidelining other marches and protests, such as yesterday's latest Free Tommy protest in London (by supporters of Tommy Robinson) and today's Al-Quds Day march in London (by haters of Israel), which have barely had a look-in.
This time I'll just throw the floor open to your views (if you're not feeling too hot to think about such things)....
What criteria should the BBC use to judge whether a particular march or protest is worth covering or worth ignoring?
Is it numbers? Is it topicality? Is it if any violence occurs? Is it about the likelihood of it bringing about change?
