Take a look at this story which appeared in yesterday's edition of the Londonpaper. It's about a burst water main causing chaos around London Bridge. We get par after par on the tragic disruption to GMTV, including the intensely moving details of the weather presenter being (sob!) unable to dry her hair.
Then scroll down to the penultimate paragraph. Where we learn in a throwaway line that Guys hospital would have to cancel some operations because of the power outage.
Modern news values. Ignore the real drama that has impact on people's lives. But give me all you can on the hairdrier horror of Claire Nasir.
