To add the BBC are probably the worse for this especially when sending reporters to locations where "adverse" weather is happening, so not only adding to the CO2 emissions getting there, but hampering the emergency services and also putting themselves at risk by being there and therefore diverting resources from those that are really in need.....
Only for the whole thing to be repeated from the safety of a studio...
Don't forget the greatest things that can contribute to a BBC reporters air miles
The terrorist attack / natural disaster / World Cup / Olympics
All of which can be covered from London but they need to go mob handed
The terrorist attack / natural disaster
Main presenter arrives and takes a balcony room overlooking the area of said incident.
They then handover to a colleague out in the street who hands over to a colleague just across the road who gets an update from a colleague down near the incident and then after all that it's back to London for teh rest of teh news
World Cup / Olympics
Linaker / Shearer and the rest of the dullards fly to the location and sit in the exact same studio give or take as they would at home and sometimes even watch the matches on a big screen so they can discuss what went on
Meanwhile 5 Live have a bus load of presenters and co commentators to cover the exact same games but on the radio
Nice work if you can get it
