Lying in state?

There were different decisions made at the BBC and ITV news conferences this morning.
The BBC concentrated primarily on the Milosevic funeral (reporting initially that there were around 20,000 mourners in Belgrade and then having to revise that estimate to a much higher figure).
Its second story was the Government’s Pensions Day consultation.
ITV on the other hand led with the growing number of protesters in Parliament Square preparing to march against the continuing, bloody shambles in Iraq.
It followed that with the Milosevic funeral.
Interesting how the broadcasts from the BBC managed to ignore the anti-war protest and replace it with a Government PR exercise. State broadcaster, anyone?
