Moving on


Given that some say that the BBC has been downplaying the eruption in fatal stabbings (especially in London), another thing I noticed on comparing the respective BBC, ITV and Sky 10 o'clock news bulletins last night is that the killing of six young people in seven days because of stabbings, continues to be a major story for Sky and ITV but appears to have already dropped off the BBC's radar again.

Last night's ITV bulletin devoted over two-and-a-half minutes to the story, following the arrest of a second person for the killing of Jodie Chesney in East London, while Sky gave the story over three minutes. The BBC didn't cover it at all.
