I rarely feel the need to pass comment on articles I see on the Internet, however I recently read this article on BBC news about the film The Golden Compass.
Bypassing the hatred I feel on calling the film by its name (it will always be Northern Lights to me). The annoyance I felt about this article is summed up by the following quote:
The three-part series culminates in an epic battle in which God dies – at the hand of a child.
Not true. Just not true in the least bit. Yes God dies, but not at the hands of our heroine, more in the arms of our heroine. She is helping him, and doesn’t even know that this angel, is actually God.
Little by little I have noticed the standards of BBC news (especially their website falling), sentences that don’t make sense, spelling mistakes, inaccuracies, were they always this bad? or do I compare the BBC to a rose-tinted version of the BBC, that they never were?
