Media Transparency: BBC

Buzz Machine reports that the BBC is "attempt[ing] to get the heads of its many news networks to open up and talk about the process of news" by making public its editor’s blog.  This is the latest effort by established media (aka MSM) to provide a glimpse into gatekeeping decisions. As such, it can logically be seen as an extension of the newspaper ombudsman, with at least one clear difference: there is no middle man between the editor and the reader.
