Talking of DB...
He also spotted a BBC Trending article headlined Gaza medics back striking English junior doctors...:
...less than an hour after it was published, and sent the following tweet to the BBC journalist responsible for the piece, Mario Cacciottolo:
As you can see, Mario had tweeted about the piece himself to telling us all how it came about:
Given that BBC Trending is supposed to report on major 'trends' in social media, this was hardly much of a 'trend', let alone yer actual news, was it?
DB suggested as much to Mario.
Now, what was it about a tweet linking Gaza with the junior doctors' strike that first attracted BBC reporter Mario Cacciottolo to this story, as Mrs Merton might have asked)?
Would the ever-trending hashtag #bbcbias help supply the answer?
Super Mario already has an entry on Biased BBC's In their Own Tweets, viz.,ReplyDelete

I'd say DB's hypothesis has legs.
As with the defunct "Echo Chambers", BBC Trending is just a reflection of what left-wing Beeboids think is important. Nothing to do with management structure or executive pay.ReplyDelete
