The pathetic reply from the BBC over a complaint that they didn't report the Bilderberg meeting

We are talking about about some of the world's most influential people across the whole swathe of politics, business, banking, military etc. meeting in a hotel in Washington without any coverage by the mainstream media.

The BBC - Blatant Bloody Censorship

Dear Mr McFerran
Thank you for your email.I understand you feel the BBC should be reporting on the Bilderberg meeting as you feel it is an extremely important issue.
BBC News is more than aware that a report that is of great interest to one part of our audience may be of little interest to another. The choice of which reports are included in the news has more to do with whether it is news that has just come in and needs immediate coverage, how unusual it is and how much national interest there is in the subject matter. The choicehas to be selective and no matter how carefully such decisions are made, news editors are always aware that some people may disagree with them.You may rest assured that I do understand your concerns, however I hope this goes someway to explaining the very difficult decisions news editors have to make and why they make them. You may rest assured that your comments have been registered and brought to the attention of BBC News. Thank you for taking the time to contact us to express the strength of your views.
