Friday, 20 February, 2009 Newsnight & Newsnight Review

'Instead of inviting Christine Odone & David Aaronovitch to comment on the change in the terms of Jade Goody's fiance's curfew, couldn't Newsnight have found someone who actually knew something about the criminal justice system'

Made my day.

I believe it comes under 'enhancing (or, in this case, perhaps more accurately shaping) the narrative'.

Of course, it can't hurt the ratings, either.

Who needs informed, objective news reporting and commentary anyway?
