BBC Social Media – bravo!

Look for a lot more social media journalism like this wonderful BBC experiment where a journalist is travelling Turkey to guage the pulse of things before the upcoming elections.

IMHO the BBC is the pinacle of journalistic integrity and achievement, and by any sane measure the quality of BBC reports is a devastating reflection on how superficial and downright ignorant our American TV news has become. With offices and reporters throughout the world the BBC offers a kind of fresh insight and objectivity rarely seen on our sad examples of journalism, especially the pitiful jingoistic air headed anchors on FOX News.
