Updated below: An overblown story in Guardian, on talk between Google and BBC, to provide BBC video on Google Video to being with and then possibly be on YouTube. BBC already has some of its videos on Google Video.
Updated: Also, BBC plans to open a New York office to sell ads on its international website for the first time as it ramps up commercial activity following a disappointing license fee settlement, reports The Telegraph. Also, interestingly, an American version of the Top Gear show website may also appear in 2007. The motoring show is not broadcast in America but its brand has a vast following, with Top Gear clips regularly among the top 10 downloads on YouTube.

  1. So given that this is the 3rd or 4th Guardian story that PC have bagged in the last month, I'm starting to sense some defensiveness here. Why not do an editorial about the journalists and publication in question and clear the air about your differences with their editorial agenda? The way you're doing it at the moment makes it sound like you see them as a threat.

  2. The Guardian notoriously overblow everything – between the typos, they are practically a porn rag for conspiracy theorists.

  3. boris,

    You must be new around here. The Guardian hypes everything involving Apple and Google, or blogs, to the skies. This is a fact, and reporting it requires no further justification from the PaidContent guys.

    Maybe it's you who feels threatened?

  4. Thanks marmel and paul. Boris, we will call out whatever we think is hype or bad reporting, be is WSJ, Guardian or NYT or Times UK. We're equal opportunity hype-busters :)
