The BBC, Sky and ITV have some shared news priorities this lunchtime on their respective news websites, but also some striking differences. 

Here are their respective running orders for you to compare and contrast at your leisure:

  1. No news whatsoever from Gaza - just accepting the unacceptable as normal - completely disgusting - sorry to mention Zionist control of the media - but it is so obvious now - time for a serious protest

  2. Many items on the BBC's news agenda appear to be trailers for programmes that the BBC are scheduling for the near future. There are 3 examples in the list above. The England fan with his ear bitten off is part of the World Cup coverage,Prince Charles calling for more Grammar Schools is a trailer for a Radio 4 programme yesterday (Sunday) and the Metallica story is part of their vastly over blown coverage of Glastonbury.
    The other thing they have been doing is interviewing someone and then reporting on the interview in the subsequent news bulletin.
    They do like to set the agenda instead of reporting it.
    I do disagree with Peter's comment above.I take an exactly opposite poiunt of view.

  3. People have been complaining that stories from,e.g. Reuters are framed as "The BBC has learnt".
    Also, statements made in BBC political interviews often reappear as headlines in news bulletins. The BBC creates the news as well as reporting it.

    I too wonder why Peter above has decided to make that particular comment on this particular website where the opposite point of view is so eloquently put.
