Dept of the Obvious

It's never a good idea to accuse someone of doing the self-same thing you're doing in the same report:
The BBC's flagship news bulletins are failing licence-fee payers across the country by being too "London-centric", a hard-hitting report will claim.

The strongly-worded study, commissioned by the BBC's governing body, will accuse the corporation's national news and current affairs programmes of ignoring events in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Yep, that's how it works: come off the M25 onto a roundabout, then take the first exit for London, second for Wales & Ulster, third for Scotland.

This is when you know you're in Flyover Country: even the report on geographical bias ignores you. Clearly, we haven't been indulging in enough stupid violence.
