"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: steveh on July 24, 2019, 10:32:41 AM It also comes from pressure to get stories out quickly to beat others to high placement on Google News, Facebook and others - BBC News often does a first quick story then rewrites and fixes issues later.

Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on July 24, 2019, 09:58:49 PMThey had cutbacks a few years ago during a site design. I think some if it is practically automated now (generates a skeleton article off of things posted on reuters) that then just gets fleshed out by glorified bloggers.
Quote from: royce coolidge on July 24, 2019, 10:19:52 PMNo,I for one will be glad to see the back of it,the arselicking voice of the establishment and the Royal family.
Quote from: sevendaughters on July 26, 2019, 12:46:43 PMThis being the second story on BBC Sport is eye-wateringly bad. No counter-voice, no expertise, just one of their foghorn pundits sounding off and it becoming a credible report: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/49110775
Quote from: icehaven on July 26, 2019, 01:10:09 PMSlightly off topic but; can anyone who clearly uses a wider range of news sites/channels than me confirm whether or not any of them except the BBC cover netball? A while ago I started noticing it popping up on BBC Breakfast when I was getting ready for work, then during an occasional look at the website there'd it'd be again (not on the sports pages, which I don't typically look at, on the featured stories on the main page.) Is it just the BBC or is there a general push to get people interested in this hideous game I was forced to play at school typically more under the radar sport?
Quote from: Darles Chickens on July 26, 2019, 05:25:12 PMAside from one sentence paragraphs, things were much better back in 2010.
Quote from: Mrs Wogans lemon drizzle on July 26, 2019, 01:38:53 PMNot too fussed about BBC One and Two but absolutely love the output on 6 music and BBC Four. It's still a world class service and the people grumbling about it tend to be moaning minnies, especially with regards to their perception of it's impartiality. As another poster said, you'll miss it once it's gone.
Quote from: NoSleep on July 27, 2019, 12:18:59 PMHeadline about a tweet... a bit written about what the tweet says, followed by the tweet quoted, followed by an image of the tweet.
Quote from: sponk on July 27, 2019, 12:23:20 PMI made this point last page, but I do think that can be valuable in preserving tweets and making them and the reaction to them easily findablt before they get lost completely on Twitter.
Quote from: pancreas on July 24, 2019, 01:16:09 PMThe most egregious recent cases are: Venezuela, Syria, Antisemitism in Labour. You'd have no idea what the truth of the situation is from the BBC. You'd think the exact opposite of what is true. Less bad: Poverty in the UK, Hostile Environment. Not particularly bad: Brexit.
Quote from: Barry Admin on August 01, 2019, 11:48:26 AMPancreas: sorry for blowing up at you. I was almost completely reduced off morphine at that point, to go back on tramadol, right after my pain levels had finally been sorted. So I was sore as fuck again and the morphine sent my emotions haywire for a few weeks. Apologies.
