As Ozfan noted on an earlier thread (concerning Radio 4's news bulletins this morning), it's striking that the BBC News website is now leading with:
I've noticed before (as, no doubt, have many of you) that David Miliband's statements on any subject of political importance tend get a very high billing in the BBC's reporting (or on Newsnight), despite him having been out of UK politics from over six years and leading a humanitarian organisation rather than a political organisation.
He's long been like 'the king over the water' for people of a certain outlook (including, perhaps, some at the BBC).
If he'd come back to 'save' the BBC... sorry... the country from Ed with careful timing, he'd have been a shoo in.ReplyDelete
Now, not so sure, as the Jez years have created a party only Stoke could love.
Top stories don't stay up for that long unless it's anti-Trump or something else really important to the BBC. The question is, has the Miliband story vanished entirely after complaints?ReplyDelete
It's just 'balance'. They replaced a story about Labour being in trouble in connection to Corbyn with another one supporting him.
