[Imc-oxford] Local BBC contact - for reference

I think ox-imc has a policy of not collaborating with the mainstream media in this way. And indymedia is anyway not a campaigning organisation, having no editorial line whatsoever. This kind of approach comes all the time from people who can't even be bothered to find out what indymedia is. Do you remember that research project from the Netherlands? And what on earth are our "campaigns against violence in the war against terror"? Does she mean the "war on terror" should be pursued in a less violent way? Is this the same as John Kerry's more "sensitive" approach, so that the "war" can be won. And let us recall that research has shown that the BBC was more pro-war in its coverage than the other channels.
But the main point is, I think we should have nothing to do with helping the BBC to have a semblance of "community outreach".

I presume this email refers to the indymedia website, though I've also
recently set up one for NOW. I'll just send her an acknowledgement for the
moment, though we might want to follow up the contact later, in the name of
outreach. I'll be posting a report later today about last Thursday's meeting
of the Oxford NUJ, too.
