Help yourself

Someone is making the BBC's David Holdsworth bend over backwards to be nice to local papers. The latest concession is on the "live" online pages run by the BBC around the country, cataloguing weekday events from around 0900-1800. Following pilots in the North East and West Yorkshire, local papers will be able to push "their strongest stories" at this stream-of-news, with links back to their own sites. No detail is given on editorial controls - presumably cat stories are welcome. Nor is there any sign of a reciprocal element.

This is what it looks on today's BBC West Yorkshire local live page.
