|BBC fluffy bunny reporting|
on artefact looting in UK
There is an official Code of Responsible Artefact Hunting agreed by a few more bodies than the NCMD, but that is hardly relevant to what the headline suggests is the subject of the article. It poses a question, to which the answer can only be 'yes', and one would have hoped the article would go through the nature of the problem and the reasons for it existing and some ways we can deal with it other than just putting a few more policemen out there in muddy fields at night. Where is the interview with a nighthawk? A landowner? A member of the public who has confronted one?
What we get is akin to the BBC having a headline about Islamist militancy and then having an article which basically consists of a series of reasons why not all Moslems are terrorists, and some figures about Moslem charity organizations or something, just to bring that point home. All very nice, but confusing two very different things.
