Anthony Zurcher fans (and this blog is where most of us congregate) will surely appreciate this very rare non-point-scoring post-Thanksgiving tweet:
For those of you outside the US, today is the day after Thanksgiving, when those who aren’t working like crazy in retail are shopping, hanging out with family or watching sports. It’s a time when news stories go to die.
Ah, but look at it in context. All is not what it seems:

Oh Anthony, couldn't you spare us the 'Peas and Carrots' of your purely impartial BBC partisan point-scoring for just one day?

Obviously not. Gobble, gobble.


  1. Frankly the BBC North America office appears to be ground zero for when any actual news stories go to die all year.

    Hope Katty got her Fortnums Christmas pud during her brief jolly over to 'report' on Brexit.

  2. I thought Zurcher was in the terminal tertiary stage of Trump Derangement Syndrome but it appears that there is a quarternary stage and possible - in his case - a quintary stage.
