BBC Link

The BBC has linked once more to TAE, so thanks to Giles Wilson for including TAE as an example of an "independent" blog, despite the fact that it has not been updated for some time now due to my impending move. Despite the lack of recent output, I'm sure new visitors, being what I suspect are mostly dedicated BBC fans, will find plenty in the old posts for which to take me to task. (Some have already).

So glad the BBC linked to you, although the patronising use of you as an example of an "independent" (implying you have a darn cheek to dare to criticise the BBC, and that your opinion is, to say the least, minority) is a shame. I have become increasingly disappointed by the BBC's journalistic standards - and whilst I enjoy some of their output, I have come to take their news coverage with a pinch of salt overall.

Wondered which of the examples would link to you - rather independent than nerdy!

Wow, your blog appears to be almost entirely devoted to paranoiacally ranting about the BBC. As an American expatriate in the UK, and a big fan of the BBC (including its accurate portrayals of the US), I don't see how what you're writing is in any way worth linking to.

Where to start...I am glad that the BBC world channel will be commercially-funded. It would be a shame if it were used as the government-funding Voice of America. Still, Fox News is broadcast on Sky, although there are no commercials. Rupert Murdoch really does have more power than the BBC (honest!), and I think that Fox News needs some competition as they are dominating the market with misinformation, more Orwellian graphics and nomenclature than the BBC would ever use. No matter how subversive the BBC might be, Fox News is worse, because, wait for it...corporate interests. Fox News has a clear agenda, and the rest of the American media simply pick off the ticks and add trite human interest stories that do nothing to bring actual information to hundreds of millions of Americans. Oh, yeah, I'm American in London. Also, while we are alluded to but not articulating the perceived socialist inclinations of the BBC, it should be noted that they have the only reputable business report on terrestrial tv.

I see that you don't like the BBC portraying Americans in a negative and stereoyped way... well, now you know how Brits feel when we are portrayed in a negative and stereotyped way by Hollywood!

A shame you don't blog much anymore TAE. Your posts were always well researched and informative. I didn't agree with all your views but I enjoyed reading them all the same.

Scott, its to be hoped you can get back to adding your comments about the BBC when you have moved.

While the BBC has become disappointing in some respects its not all bad. It seems to be a fact of modern life that many of those attracted to jobs in the media often bring with them a degree of bias they are reluctant lay aside.

I would have thought that all reporters would want to be objective. Getting at the facts, and then relaying them without letting personal cherished notions get in the way to corrupt the telling.

The BBC is not the only source these days to have fallen foul of that principle. It is well then that people such as yourself take the time and trouble that you do.

Kindest regards.

Allow moi to wax a bit less flippant.

"All men are created equal" and that was written by Slave Owners.

The U. S. of A was a lie on July 4th, 1776 and has been a lie every day since.

No one wishes it was NOT so more than I, but, it is that way.

I think I'd have to agree with anonymous, as another ex-pat. Surely you could focus on things more important worth debating, like, is the Bush government finally going down the tubes because it's so stuck in outdated ideas of using power and force to solve problems. It's a bit like american medicine. Just kill the symptoms, never mind the deeper problem.
Anyhow, the BBC is far superior to all the rightwing dumbed down overhyped crud you get in the states. I know that for a fact.

Americans are flocking to UK newspapers, or more likely viewspapers, because of the American newspaper industry's unwillingness to bend to consumer demand and offer views and opinions, or the opinions the consumer wants.

The BBC has to be impartial

A Nielsen / NetRatings study in the UK revealed that the online editions of two major quality dailies, the Guardian and Times of London, have more American than British readers. Here’s a look at the new (reader) dynamics that come with online newspapers.

The Independent online already has twice as many US readers as it does in the UK, and the Daily Telegraph’s online readers in the US will soon surpass the number of British ones too.

Unlike US quality papers, the UK’s broadsheets have increasingly emphasized opinion and analysis, and using Tony Blair’s expression, British newspapers have progressively turned into “viewspapers.”

This is one factor for their success: as roughly a quarter of Americans now use the Internet as their primary news source, many of these typically younger and more educated readers are seeking both analysis and “viewspaper” experience.

Factor two: "Not only are we acquiring our information from new places but we are taking it pretty much on our own terms… The news, too, is now getting to be on-demand,” wrote Joseph Epstein, in an essay on the future of newspapers.

Perhaps the British publications are doing a better job at providing news on the users’ terms, compared to the US’ audience traditional news plateau, composed in majority by proudly partisan broadcast news.

So how will (US) newspapers evolve to adapt to readers’ tastes?

“Nobody knows for certain, but the odds are it will be a hybrid publication in which an online edition that's focused mainly on breaking news and service works in tandem with a print edition whose staples are analysis, context and opinion,” suggests the Los Angeles Times.

“As they give themselves over to more analysis and commentary, newspapers will have to be more vigilant about being genuinely honest brokers of ideas, opening their news columns to a far broader spectrum of serious opinions and perspectives.”

Although this answer seems reasonable and matches the current consensus, it doesn’t seem to take into account our starting point: US readers are flocking to the analysis-filled online editions of British newspapers.

The ‘online-for-news and print-for-opinion’ model isn’t an evolution for newspapers: it’s already happening, to a relatively large extent. Maybe the Internet is actually going to serve as the main platform for analysis and opinion.

After all, the Internet is befitted for this type of content:
- Analysis and opinion are getting great exposure online, with the score of blogs and comments available on newspaper sites
- analysis can be updated and complemented with follow-ups
- readers can come back to finish a read online, even days later, which they might not do with a print edition.
- for simple technological reasons, it’s much easier to string and contextualize news online and link it to other in-depth information

Well then, if the online edition becomes a preferred medium both for analysis and for breaking news, what will happen to the print edition?

BBC World News in terms of viewing figures is still the most watched News service in the world, Its close competitor CNN international still remains in distant second with the BBC doubling twice the viewing figures than that of CNN international. The BBC is still the most trusted television corporation in the world so they must be doing something right.

The BBC does not question the news it reports it and that's exactly what the world wants to see...oh and no offence but I highly doubt the British care about American politics and nor do they care about how america is ran (Why should they?) I would imagine the only time the British should care is if it involves the two countries.

I think this site is fantastic Scott but the TV ratings speak for themselves. You have your opinions and I have mine and for me, the BBC is where I turn for news. The above post about Americans flocking to British newspapers is also of great interest.

Thanks you
Kindest Regards
Chris

"The BBC is still the most trusted television corporation in the world"

Surely not any more? Not in the wake of the recent scandals surrounding viewer deception, fake phone-ins etc.

Any organization that loses the trust of viewers loses the right to exist. Time to modernize: the state has no business in broadcasting. For too long the BBC has acted like an indestructible rent-collector.

As the previous but one blogger has already described, huge amounts of quality (and free!) information are now available only a click away, do we actually need the BBC anymore?
