Even if it wanted it - and it doesn't - the BBC can't choose to make its way in the world by mimicking the exhausting diurnal anger of the Mail ('woe that the 1950s are gone') or the hand-wringing of the Guardian/Independent ('woe that global warming/capitalism is taking us to hell in an organic hand-basket').
From The story is dead on the BBC Editors blog
I love the BBC blogs. They're a place where I can see a different side to the BBC and the people who produce the reportage I'm addicted to - a more personal voice for those people. They're also a really interesting insight into the business of journalism and the choices that are made by the people who set the headlines (literally) and how they think about them. They're also the only place on the BBC where I can imagine the above quote being included - yay for the Editors blog!
