BBC News Really Loses It

Some people might think I was a bit mean to BBC News earlier when I mocked their slight issues with counting lifts. But now they’ve really lost the plot to an extent that buggers belief[1]. I can see that some people missing an apparently important part of an apparently important game of some sport or other due to a power cut might be worth mentioning. As an aside. On a very small and insignificant area of a news site. But making the headline a reference to the fact that one person so affected was what we’re apparently supposed to think of as a “celebrity” is pure tabloid crap. Seriously, guys – are you deliberately trying to look bad so nobody will mind if the government decides to abolish you?
