Beneath a misleading headline and its usual BBC bashing, the Daily Telegraph has just suggested that I somehow accused the BBC of dumbing down the Young Musician contest.
I did no such thing. On the contrary, I praised the seriousness of the event while deploring the low-key presentation and lack of promotional back-up.
More particularly, I attacked all the national papers including the Telegraph for failing to report the final or the result.
The Telegraph, in its curious blog, continues to ignore it. One reader has already complained that all it gives is the name of the winner, not the runners up or what was played. The Guardian has done no better.
On this form, you can see why readers are deserting newspapers in their droves.
