Did Anyone See Last Night Bbc News @ 10 Re Commodoties

Recommended Posts

On BBC news last night they did a piece on the prices of metals, saying how they'd risen.

There was a short mention of how it effects business costs.

A little bit about how 'some' 2p pieces are now worth 3p and then came the interesting bit:

'But the prices could come down'

Essentially hinting that prices could crash.

Why no similar comment when they report on house prices?

I did, Evan Davies is pretty good I think - when it comes to explaining relatively sophisiticated concepts to the layperson... but the editorial policy at the Beeb will always remain like "valium for the masses". They are the televisual equivalent of the oxygen masks in a crashing plane.

The BBC are officially the propaganda arm of the government. HPI and MEW underpins 70% of the UK economy. If the BBC suggest house prices might fall the government goes with it.

Analyst think copper is going to go past the 10,000US a ton mark (it's hovering at 8,400ish) so I don't imagine Evan has any clue what he's talking about. "It could crash"? That's genius!

I saw it and remember thinking to myself, how come they never do objective reporting about house prices. I am constantly amazed at the irrelevant drivel they spout out, a whole 5 minute report the other day analysing the pollen cloud over Europe.
