Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
isn't it all relative?

living out of england, i really came to appreciate the bbc.

since kelly there has been a shift...definitely more right wing parroting, superficiality etc.

compared to the other news channels they are dull, and after exposing oneself to the other channels, dull is suddenly sober and reasoned!

fox would make goebbels wriggle with delight.

cnn, yawn...al jazeera has some good documentary stuff, like people power, riz khan interviews ok.

sky is medium ok, but too obsessed with sentimental myths like royalty, not to mention sports celebrities etc.

euronews is interesting sometimes, their culture mag is fine.

italian news...don't even go there...

What an informed, fair and balanced comment :-)

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.

Perhaps (given someone's 4 rating for this one-liner - but nothing for my detailed critique of rg's failure to watch the programme he attacked) I should make it clear that my comment is serious, not sarcastic and that the smiley is just to indicate that of course this reflects my own views in more dtailed comments in this thread.
