Strange coincidence. Following on from my post about moderation which went up yesterday morning I learned that in the afternoon BBC Radio 4 also ran a piece on the same subject. It was on The Media Show. Sarah Roberts – whom I had quoted – was a guest on the programme along with a guy from Microsoft’s research division. The discussion starts around 19 minutes in although the first (and unrelated) item on what is happening today in the name of journalism is also worth a listen. It will not cheer you up.
