Harry’s Place commenter Lopakhin has launched a Channel 4 News Watch blog. Refreshingly for the author of a “watch” blog, he doesn’t go into it with a burn-the-house-down attitude. He writes:
I’m a fan of C4 News. At its best, it can be offbeat, prepared to offer a different perspective, and at ease with a diverse and multiethnic Britain. This occasional blog, though, will be largely devoted to the matter which grates on some viewers even more than some of Jon Snow’s ties: the programme’s tendentious reporting of Middle Eastern politics.
