Yes, it’s hoaky headline Monday!

Like Doug Fisher, I missed this piece on BBC Newsnight about Channel 5 banning the noddy. It’s a nice piece (a little like a recent episode of Screenwipe, but well put together.) But why are 5 doing it?

(cut to interview) Because they are just cheats. It’s a small step towards installing a little bit of trust back in to news, that’s why.

Thanks for the reminder Doug.
