A BBC News editor has made some staggering comments about the channel’s news coverage; not least in relation to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) flagship benefit, Universal Credit. Because he thinks people are “sick” of “grim” news.
The DWP versus the royals?

BBC Newswatch is the broadcaster’s 15-minute programme where viewers send in their comments about news coverage. The BBC then attempts to critique its own coverage.

No, really. It does. ‘Attempt’ to, that is.

The edition broadcast on Friday 19 October focused on the BBC‘s coverage of the royal family. Specifically, both the pregnancy of the Duchess of Sussex and the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

Viewer’s comments were a mixed bag. One person, in particular, criticised the BBC for making the ‘royal baby’ headline news. They called the broadcaster “sycophantic”. Surely not…?
