Mistimed News from the BBC
Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5153678.stm
The UK came to a standstill at noon for a two–minute silence to mark the first anniversary of the London bombings that claimed 52 lives and injured hundreds.
I'm assuming that the BBC use an automated content management system to put News Releases onto the web, but surely they should have timed the update of an article about the 2 minutes silence to go out at 12.02 rather than 12.01 half–way through the 2–minutes silence?!
(For anyone confused, the update time now shows 12.05…)
