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,

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.
