The Commitments

I'm sure viewers will be delighted at the BBC News Channel's "new commitment to international news".

"The BBC News Channel today announced a new [sic] international programme at 9pm as part of an ongoing commitment to providing its viewers with the best global news reporting."

What's really happening is that UK viewers will watch what's going out on BBC World at 9pm every night. That'll be Outside Source, Monday to Thursday, and a bulletin of World News Friday to Sunday. To me, simulcasting like that has a sniff of a saving rather than a commitment to anything in particular.
