I used to watch the BBC news as I felt it was a proper news channel. But clearly that wasn't working for them, and in my eyes they seem to be now verging on as much sensationalism as your average tabloid, just to get their numbers up. So I stopped watching. I blame Ron Burgandy and the introduction of 24 hour news.
Strangely I now think that The Daily Show is the only proper news show out there.
