Controller of News 24, Kevin Bakhurst, defends the channel’s use of the term "Breaking News". You can watch the programme by clicking here.

This program and Feedback on Radio 4 are appaling aelf-adverts for the BBC. No-one that the BBC puts on these programs ever admits that a mistake was made or an error of judgement that is evident to the nation ever happened.

I am a complete fan of the BBC and its independence. I would have gladly paid the increased fee that they wanted as I use the websites, radio (DAB & FM/MW), watch all the BBC channels and enjoy its output. Apart from Eastenders and other such drivel but I accept that others like it and I can't be happy with all the output.

But I get really annoyed at these self-serving, grandiose back-patting excercises known as Newswatch and Feedback. Mistakes do get made in the BBC. I just hope one day that someone in the BBC has the courage to stand up and say - I got it wrong.

The Blogs, by the way, are just as annoying for the same reason.
