The most ridiculous propaganda yet from the BBC

The High Street

9 optimistic vs. 2 pessimistic outlooks from a 'random sample' of high street retailers. The best one? The estate agent's of course - "The market's just starting to turn. Now is a good time to buy and I'm employing people, rather than laying them off." This is a shameful day for the UK state media's bureau for public information.

  • Yuo can’t blame estate agents for ‘talking their own book’ when thousands have lost their jobs and the rest have had their pay destroyed. People will see it for what it is in this part of the cycle.

    Maybe the BBC give the public enough credit to work out what is going on.

    Maybe if the BBC told the naked truth, it would make things much much worse.

    Great reporting. Of course if you read the article you’d see it’s:

    8 optimistic, 3 pessimistic, and 1 neural view.

    Also they don’t claim to make a random sample at all. In fact the sample of shops is a collection of shops they’ve been following for a while now.

    I think your leap to have a go at the BBC’s reporting really lead to break down in the quality of yours. I normally enjoy reading this site, but this post left a sour taste.
