Is BBC news mediocre?

I was writing earlier about the way photojournalism is losing its way. And many major news outlets. Have a look at the reports on the fiji coup on the BBC news page and then look at the blog on the same issue here, http://headheeb.blogmosis.com/

The second seems far better researched. How is it that a blogger can write a better news story than a major news outlet. Is it time deadlines? Is it a perceived need to shape and give a neat opinion in a very specific number of words.

It worries me. I now don't trust any report from the BBC. I always check other sources. So often it seems the news is skewed or too many bits of information have been left out.
