The Mail, pots and kettles

The Daily Mail has launched a feature holding the BBC to task over its reporting of the economy.

‘Whinge watch’ will “monitor the BBC’s biased reporting of the battle to save Britain’s economy.”

The Mail says Auntie, in its role as “the flagship of the public sector, is obsessed with stories warning of the dire impact of the cuts, and rarely speaks up for the private sector that funds it.”

So the BBC, according to the Mail, is not impartial and “lacks context”…




“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS at the London School of Economics, reacts to news that the UK government forced the Guardian into destroying hard drives that contained information leaked by Edward Snowden.
