It's not the News. It's 'what we should be thinking' propaganda. The BBC don't seem to realise we can watch loads of channels from abroad that report proper world news and shows the BBC up for what they are.

Nick: And we are off again with the 'BBC is propaganda' theme. And no, I still don't work for the BBC.

We can watch channels from anywhere we like, thanks to the intertubes, plus all the foreign news channels on Freeview and Freesat, etc (7 other news channels on Freesat alone). However, the BBC is rated as the most trustworthy single news source in polls, with 32% going for the BBC, with ITV getting 8%. The BBC World Service also gets 2%, as does BBC radio, and the BBC website gets 3% - so the BBC is the most trusted news source with 39%. The highest scored newspaper is the Daily Mail, with 3%. The BBC is also the most trusted source in the US. But you already know this, becuase I pointed it out last November.

And despite the fact the nobody is forced to watch any BBC programmes or news at all, its still the most watched/listened to media organisation in the UK, and possibly the world (taking into account the World Service, etc). If its so awful, despite so much choice and alternatives, what are we all doing wrong?
