BBC Business Reporting Was Pathetic Yesterday, Again

The FTSE 100 was up 9.84% and the BBC’s Robert Peston told us yesterday that was because the City liked the PBR, this was repeated by whatshisname the other business reporter on the News at Ten.

Well the Germans must have like it more because the Dax was up 10.34% and the French Cac 40 was up 10.09%. In fact around the world stock markets were up. Gordon is the Global Saviour!

Nothing to do with the bail-out of the world’s biggest bank Citigroup by the yanks? BBC business reporting* is below second-rate, if it was your only news source you would be worse than uninformed: you would be misinformed.

*To be fair, Guido has knocked Newsnight’s reporting in the past but it was pretty thorough last night, covering the issues realistically.
