Radio 4 Today Programme

Why was Jim Naughtie allowed to go to Japan for the Today Programme?  Firstly, the BBC make a point of having correspondents all over the world so should they not be doing the job of reporting the Japanese disaster.  Secondly it seems to me almost indecent voyeurism to send superfluous reporting staff to a country which is only just managing to cope with overwhelming problems without having to answer yet more questions and to transport, feed and shelter a news team just to feed the Today ego.

The ultimate irony was a piece about a new comedy "Twenty Twelve" lampooning bureaucracy which was aired just before 9.00 am to be followed by Naughtie in Japan interviewing the Japanese ambassador in London!  Can the BBC not realise that lunacy like that just makes them look unfeeling, insensitive and wasteful of taxpayers' money?
