Davis wins, rubbish BBC coverage

Anthony Barnett at OurKingdom:

I have blogged about the sneering, rictus-smiled coverage of Davis by the BBC. There will be more analysis of this to come, calm, and surgical. But its coverage of the count was an utter disgrace and will for the moment serve this angry viewer as a symbol of its appalling conceit and incompetance. It lost the sound when the Sherrif read out the results. Anyone could have run forward with a microphone to make sure they could broadcast Davis’s acceptance speech. They didn’t. Nor was their hapless reporter ordered forward with his own mike. Listen to Davis at his moment of triumph? Hear what he had to say about the issue? No need for THAT.

I gave up watching TV some time ago.  But I do read the BBC website and got a similar impression – the by-election wasn’t important to them / they didn’t understand it.
