Know Your Enemy

"The holograms, the virtual sets. The British media has contracted a devastating case of CNN-itis. It’s when a news organisation spends a great deal of time creating visuals and set pieces, which have no discernible purpose and shed no perceptible light and actually distract you from what it was they were trying to find out."

Jon Stewart on the BBC's election coverage. You might well replace "CNN-itis" with "The Day Today-itis". I bet Robert Peston can't wait to wheel out the Currency Cat.

At least none of the BBC's news reporters have started using the word "cunt" in their pieces yet. Eh? Oh.
