I am just a member of the public and I am fed up with poor quality and lazy journalism. I feel that most journalist rely on a diet of press releases and gossip gleamed from dinner parties with their mates. Whenever any jourlaist does the minimum of research it is called investigative journalism and is followed by a chorus of self and buddy congratulism.
I don't rely on what is on the BBC and tend not to listen. There are other news sources that at least attempt to use contributors from other backgrounds and points of view.
It's a shame but increasing numbers of people are getting wish to how easily the news is manipulated essentially because those who get the top jobs are just too lazy to do the job they are paid to do.

Agreed. In addition to those comments, in the past most broadcasters were real professionals. Their use of the English language, for the most part, was accurate and respectful. Now many broadcasters do not know the difference between I and me, and the list goes on. Jargon and slang...shameful!

Totally agree - news is boring, predicable in the way its message is delivered, and repeated across all stations/mediums. Zzzzz...
