BBC News And The Fritzl Story

leave a comment »

Now I am an “out and proud” news junkie.  The BBC News channel runs on at least one screen in my house for at least 12 hours a day but even for me, the coverage of the Fritzl trial has been totally over the top:  boring, repetitive and not even news.

The news all happened when this evil man was discovered.  He pleaded guilty right at the beginning of his trial and was clearly going to be sentenced to life imprisonment.  Why has the BBC gone over and over it, again and again?

Turgid would be a gentle criticism of this coverage.  Most people can’t stand the degree to which I will watch the news so when you begin to bore and irritate me you really are in trouble!
