Simon Gunn. Baghdad.
Two car bombs in Baghdad this afternoon & yet BBC's website is still reporting yesterday's news. Too many correspondents in Lebanon.

Delilah Hampshire, United Kingdom
I became very annoyed with the almost exclusive media attention given to Lebanon/Israeli spat while the consequences of Blair and Bush's catastrophically stupid decision to invade Iraq went unreported, and was producing a daily death-toll far exceeding anywhere else in the middle-east, and had been for months.

bumble, Dartford,Kent
We live in a 24/7 world now, and what was a head line to day quickly fades away when a new conflict makes it to the newspapers or tv. And the viewer`s and readers are conflict weary ,so just turn the page or switch to another channel.

Christopher from Amsterdam
I feel for all the victims of violence and war, but in my busy life I don't have the time or energy to follow every local, national, european and global @news story, so I'm grateful that the major news sources like the bbc filter these stories for me. Otherwise it would be too overwhelming.
