ITN reputation on ITV and Channel five could suffer soon as well.
Sorry but, with respect, that is absurd.
For starters, how do you know that it is ITN at fault? ITN provide resources but the editorial content is most likely directed by Channel 4 itself.
And secondly, ITN as a brand is now so non-existent that it won't affect ITV or Channel 5 at all. In fact, it's all credit to ITN that they have been able to produce such varied programming across many outlets over the years to meet their clients' expectations. And remember that's what ITV, C4 and C5 are to ITN - clients. I don't see how one alleged mistake on one outlet would affect the others' reputations. I would strongly suggest that 99% of the British population don't even realise what ITN is anymore.
Please can you stop making these sweeping, ill-informed generalisations all the time? It is becoming really very tiresome.
