BBC grabs stock photo of own building

FAIL

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Indeed they do. The BBC pays a flat rate and can use whatever pictures are needed. Quicker than sending someone outside with a camera, downloading the picture to the desktop and then uploading it to the CMS.

Story FAIL.

BBC confirms death of 6Music, slashes online budget by a quarter

WTF?

Tried listening?

You've obviously not listened to Radio 1 much. Take a look at the fab comparemyradio.com from the guys at Absolute for evidence it doesn't just dish out "Cowell sanctioned pap": http://comparemyradio.com/stations/BBC_Radio_1

I don't think You Me At Six, Gramophonedzie or Tinie Tempah (R1's top 3 played tracks over the last 30 days) would be very happy to be described as such, anyway.

And let's compare to your local Smashie and Nicey on Capital: http://comparemyradio.com/compare/BBC_Radio_1/Capital_FM - I'd say the difference is fairly marked.

6Music still needs to be saved, of course, just don't fall into the trap of denigrating Radio 1 just because you don't fall into their target audience.
