Another Example Of Shoddy Bbc Reporting

Recommended Posts

"Prices remained 3.4% lower than a year earlier, but this figure has now shrunk for five consecutive months"

Appears that the BBC are struggling with the adjectives fall, lower, drop etc. now that the've run out of euphemisms :lol: .

Given that some on here think the BBC deliberately bias their house price indice reports, iI's quite a refreshing change to see them use the word 'lower' rather than 'higher' . :)

Wonder how long it will take them to notice and correct it? I reckon a week.

Reporting bad news just doesn't fit with their "animated and happy" presenter style you see.

How can their presenters possibly get into the happy groove and wave their hands around enthusiastically when the news they're reporting is actually ... (whisper it)... bad for them.
