Sqrxz: I dislike the BBC now.I recently posted a rant on FB, excerpted below:I am sorry BBC but I must speak the truth. I have listened to your radio programs (or shall I say programmes?) for over a decade and the sad truth is that you have become tripe. Your news quality and presentation style rank you somewhere below CNN but above Fox News. What once was heralded as the pinnacle of Western journalism is now less than pedestrian.At least 10 minutes of every hour is dedicated to...sport, mostly football (soccer), even on their WORLD SERVICE program (meant for broad consumption). Umm...who cares?Further, most of their coverage seems like they are pandering to the common folk of both Britain and America. The coverage is way too U.S. centered, having lost its global touch and feel in the last decade.The last bright light of their news coverage, the Analysis portion (last 10 minutes) of the World Service program, has also become hopelessly diluted with drivel. It used to be hard hitting journalism, holding back no punches. Now, we have royal baby coverage, "analysis" of food desires, reports on "research" on inane topics, or at the BEST we get Fox News style coverage of important political issues in some region of the world (meaning no analysis, fairly one-sided, and no background information; essentially, a headline).
