Apparently there was no real news in the Eastern region today, not if BBC East and Anglia News is to be believed.
Instead of featuring real local news, ITV Anglia and BBC East decided that wasting nearly 15 minutes on the marches and protesters in London was local news simply because ;
1) Barack Obama landed at Stansted airport.
2) Some people from East Anglia work in London.
Presumably then because some people from the East of England also go on holiday to Spain, we will have local news live from Spain when they next have a general election ?
Local news makes itself irrelevant by aping reports that are already being covered on national news. In simple terms the protests in London are not local news to anyone except those living in the London region. If Anglia or BBC East are bored with local news then it shows them up to be poor journalists.
