All the news [that's not too shocking]

The Guardian, in its media section, picks out some of the new BBC editorial guidelines. On their commitment to “accuracy is more important than speed”, the BBC say – “We should be honest and open about what we don’t know and avoid unfounded speculation”. Indeed. And on the time-delay to be used in live coverage of potentially shocking events. The BBC have tried to minimize concern about the time-delay by emphasising that it will only apply in specific circumstances... But should the BBC be editing out [no longer] live news images that they judge to be “distressing” for viewers?
