Can someone please tell me why the BBC gets "it" and is constantly on the innovative edge with coverage compared to the US media?
"To provide an insight into the exhaustive electoral exercise in the world’s largest democracy, the BBC’s India Election Train was flagged off from Safdarjung Station…Carrying a team of journalists working for its services in English, Hindi, Urdu, Tamil and Bengali besides Burmese, Swahili, Arabic and other foreign languages, the BBC will investigate stories and take a look at personalities behind the Lok Sabha po lls. Its mission is to explore how the Indian economy can resuscitate the global economy during recession." From: http://www.hindu.com/2009/04/26/stories/2009042650591300.htm
I wonder if in part it has to do with the fact that the UK is more of a homogenous society with more agreed upon goals of what the media and journalism should do and how it should be funded? It’s inspiring and I want to learn more about why and how their business model works and how the US’ does not.
