Interesting (and reasonably well hidden) page on the BBC news site where they admit that the number of complaints they have had about their wall to wall coverage of the Pope’s death has “swamped” the amount of praise they have recieved for it.
Head of TV news Roger Mosey has answered some of the complaints raised. Personally I don’t find his answers very convincing. Less than 10% of the UK population is Catholic. Even taking into account the (small) importance he had for non-Catholics taking up 90% of the output of News 24 for four or five days simply isn’t justified.
