The BBC are good at certain things. They are the default choice for the great events of State. The really big ceremonial events are the BBC's preserve. The Trooping of the Colour, to State funerals, from the Coronation down, all turned to the Beeb to cover things.
How things have changed.
The BBC's coverage of the Queen's Jubilee has been a vacuous disaster. Truly awful.
How the mighty have fallen. Gone were the people who actually knew what they were talking about and had the talent to present such major events eloquently and in came the brain dead BBC endorsed celebrity, and the ignorant.
Personally I think their coverage of the regatta was pathetic. From not knowing what the important semaphore messages were, to calling the Queen baggage, it was dire. Worse than that though was the ignorance of the boats taking part, or the incredible stories of the veterans who took part. Some of these small boats saved Britain, some of the men saw hell, even the work boats, current and historic, reflect our country and our history.
The BBC didn't care.
Such cringeworthy incompetence in a organisation receiving billions in tax a year was awful to witness.
If the BBC cannot be the default eye of the nation in the great events what is the point of it?
