Royal and Celebrity news overrides Real News at 'Tabloid BBC'
As a cyclist, reading about cyclists dying under lorries in London in local newspapers, the BBC appears to barely report numerous 'real news' stories, instead prefering celebrities and royals over them.
Why is it that I cannot find the story of a cyclist death on the BBC but only in a minor newspaper? Even pedestrians who are killed on our streets are either not mentioned or there is only a tiny paragraph on it but there is a massive story about a royal or a Hollywood actor?
We are forced to have a deluge of Prince Harry's romance 'news stories', often on the front pages. Many of us do not want to read about the royals yet we have to put up with it and no one says, 'we don't want to read about the royals', we want real news'.
I am expecting an email from the BBC, no doubt saying something like, 'we receive so many stories and we cannot fit them all in', yes, that is true to a point but they should say that they prefer to put celebrity and royal news over real news stories, that could in fact save people's lives by at least raising awareness.
There appears to be a celebrity / royal bias.
