Net firms reject monitoring role

Net firms reject monitoring role (BBC News, Friday, 15 February 2008)

Who will rid us of these dilettantes at BBC News?

The first two paragraphs are clear and say everything there is to say. The government wants ISPs to check the contents of Internet traffic for infringement of copyright, and the ISPs correctly say that they can't, because the law does not allow them to look at contents.

The remainder of the unnecessarily long article goes on and on and on until the very end about an entirely different issue, namely management of the volume of Internet traffic.

Moreover, the text is sexed up with an irrelevant image of the launch of a space shuttle.

This is even worse than the usual mediocrity that we associate with the BBC.
