Aggravating journalism…

Filed under: Rants and Opinions — thebestbrew @ 6:58 am

Panorama (a BBC “investigative reporting” show) aired a program on secret payments in the football (soccer) industry in England.

It was really annoying because they concentrated on one guy so much, it became clear they didn’t have enough to go wide on the issue. This made it look more like they wanted to pursue the guy for some reason. Maybe they just lucked-into a seam of gossip (for there seemed to be no court-worthy evidence) but they certainly did not have enough to take the program beyond what amounted to conversations in pubs.

Panorama have done some excellent stuff in the past – this was crap.
