BARRY DAUPHIN SAYS YOU CAN’T TRUST THE BBC IN A CRISIS:

I’m writing from a blackout area, but my power has recently come back on (Ypsilanti, MI). Last night while listening to my wind up radio, on comes the “authoritative” BBC voice. Their headline was that the power outage was causing “chaos” in several American cities. Well, there was no chaos in the Metro Detroit area. Listening for a few hours to the radio revealed no chaos in any American city. People calmly did what they needed to do. There’s very little, if any, panic. Seems like the BBC “sexed up” its journalism once again.

Is Andrew Gilligan reporting from NY or is this just the usual BBC?

It’s not clear that there’s anything terribly unusual about Andrew Gilligan’s reporting.
