Following my post on "News Values", I am told that the foreign ministers' meeting WAS on the BBC Six o’Clock. Andrew Marr pronounced, complete with pictures of salami being sliced and the mosquito story and a to-camera piece from the actual conference room. I am told it wasn’t as good as it could have been [of course!] but it wasn’t bad.
I was actually watching News 24, and assumed the BBC main news would follow the same line. Slap on the wrist North!
By the way, the story was also in the London Evening Standard, page four of the evening edition, with the Olympics splashed all over page 1.
