Media’s self obsession

The Philippines have just suffered a major flood and Samoa has experienced a tsunami. Labour are having their party conference.

Why then is the BBC main story ‘Brown loses Sun newspaper backing’?

Who cares about this tabloid’s carefully planned campaign? Why is that the most important news item and why is it more important than Gordon Brown’s speech? I’m also left wondering why Sun journalists were given more air time than the Prime Minister.

Is this another case of the media making the news or just a very one sided view of the world from the BBC?
