This morning's main BBC Breakfast headline was about Jill Dando's murder. Ostensibly anyway - it was really an advertisment for tonight's Panorama.

Last night, I saw a trailer for Five News, saying that tonight's episode (this now seems a more appropriate term than 'edition') would have Julie Walters in it, plugging some TV show or other. A trailer for what will be in tomorrow's news?!?

No wonder people are turning to blogs in their droves.

I was thinking much the same thing about the Jill Dando story - just a shameless plug for their program.

What I thought worse however was a local BBC news broadcast which was basically an advert for online speed dating on a train... and the BBC claim they don't advertise!
