North Korea feedback

Amanda Farnsworth | 10:30 UK time, Wednesday, 18 October 2006

Last week I asked how much coverage you thought we ought to give to the North Korea story. Thank you all very much indeed for all your responses - it really is useful to get at least some sort of feel for what you think.

BBC Six O'Clock News logo I promised to give you the information about audience reaction on this story after a few days, so here it is.

For the Six O'Clock News, the story that stood out for over half the audience (54%) was: World leaders condemn North Korea nuclear test and this was also the story they wanted to know more about (39%).

Six thousand people wrote into the BBC News website in the first 24 hours after the story broke. The story was also the most read on the website all of Monday.

Thanks again.


How about some coverage that points out the massive gap between WMD policy in oil and non-oil producing regions?

The BBC of late have been incredibly guilt of bringing up anything 'terror' related, often speculative and unproven, based on "we believe" faceless sources.

Yet here is a 'proven' nuclear threat by an obvious despot, something the public might actually want dealing with ... all we seem to see is party line repetition.

Steve (1) I see you were the firth one to respond. In fact you were the only one to respond so far.

Ms. Farnsworth, last week you asked for our feedback and you got it. You just gave us your feedback on our feedback. It looks like you aren't getting a whole lot of feedback on your feedback on our feedback. Maybe when it comes to this topic, everyone by now is just fed up. :>)
