The "light" channel? You mean ITV then?

So the BBC do it badly, and ITV do it brilliantly, just as it should be you reckon?

No, the main news broadcasters revert to type: the BBC did it formally, ITV were more populist, and Sky do things in a slightly more mid Atlantic, bombastic style.

The BBC's coverage certainly wasn't 'bad' it might not have been to everyone's taste but it wasn't terrible

Lots of speculation now doing the rounds, suggesting that the Royal honeymoon was "postponed" because of known developments regarding todays ambush in Pakistan, discovering OBL. UK Intelligence wanted the couple to be on known home territory, and not overseas travelling by air on scheduled flights. Some key BBC anchors are suggesting exactly this on the Twitter network.

Makes sense I suppose. Even if they didn't know the exact reason they probably advised them there was a heightened security risk.

I don't think that the Obamas non-attendance at the wedding was connected (that was settled a long time ago and the White House Correspondents Dinner was on Saturday night) but it would have been interesting had he been due to attend
