Watching the coverage of the events in Ferguson I began to get CNN fatigue; between the antics of Don Lemon and uber-annoying, Jake Tapper, I switched to BBC which has had impressive coverage. Frivolous
I'd always, before, pooh-poohed the idea of watching BBC but they are straightforward, reliable and provide generally responsible news without the unnecessary drama associated with the American cable outlets.
I also like BBC coverage of more international news because, frankly, both the cable and commercial networks here, (hello, ABC News), offer little if any foreign news coverage outside of cursory ten-second visuals. I know I'm in the minority but I like watching international news--it's not sexy but it's important enough especially when you look what's taken place just in the last week with Middle East developments, the on-going events in Ukraine and the ghastly murder of American journalist, James Foley.
