BBC News continues downhill (5)
Posted by Polonius on 25 February, 2009
The BBC News Web site currently has a story headlined “Texting death crash peer jailed“. A careful reading of the article reveals that Lord Ahmed was jailed for dangerous driving. Not, as the BBC would like us to believe, for causing death by dangerous driving, because there is no evidence that he was driving dangerously at the time of the fatal accident. Rather, he was considered (indeed pleaded guilty to) driving dangerously some minutes before the accident. I think that makes the “Texting death” part of the headline a blatant lie.
