  1. Hello to the (truly startling) number of people clicking through from Iain’s site… hope you aren’t too disappointed to see that he quoted the entire post on his own blog.
    I hope Iain won’t mind me reproducing the (entire) comment I added to his post:

    Hope you didn’t take the mouse/lion thing as an insult Iain… I think it’s to your considerable credit that she has gone to such considerable effort to respond.
    I don’t think the Five Live quote necessarily proves any BBC bias; more likely, it’s a programme editor desperate to move the story on a bit. It’s a familiar mantra in any rolling newsroom: ‘what’s the new top line?’

    Lion vs mouse? In terms of audience reach, and hence in terms of direct influence, I think it’s a valid turn of phrase to have used. Even with a (very commendable) quarter of a million unique visitors per month.
