A sense of proportion?

The BBC TV’s main evening bulletin leads off with, and devotes ten minutes to, the admittedly sad suicide of an alcohol and drug dependent actor but can only spend three minutes on the massacre and starvation by their fellow Iraquis of hundreds of innocent men, women and children.

One event creates a temporary tsunami of   tears and hand-wringing and predictable expressions of grief; the other means years of  homelessness and hunger for people already at subsistence level and with little hope.

Could it really be the BBC has got the balance right in terms of how we view the world and what really matters to the majority?
