#BBC stay focused, it is news you provide
The news of the BBC, it has an enviable reputation of being independent, relevant, timely. The BBC world service is my favourite channel in my car, its news items end up in my reader. I am increasingly unhappy.
On a local level, it may be news that Donna Forrest was murdered at a house in Balintore in April and that a man who was jailed for killing her. It is however no news on a global level.
Dear BBC do a proper job and filter out what is no news for your global audience. Alternatively do a global job and inform us about the traffic accidents or murders in Egypt, the Netherlands or Argentina as well.
It is better to bring less news then irrelevant news.
