Steve Coll, president of the New America Foundation and a staff writer at The New Yorker: "When I'm in Washington, I'll listen to NPR and BBC World News if I'm driving to work. At the office, I have a mini-screen TV on top of my desk that I leave on all day, muted, just to have it on--an old newsroom habit, I guess. I leave it on CNN and will change it to CSPAN if there's an interesting hearing on. My work homepage is the BBC." Nicole Allan, The Atlantic Wire, 24 February 2010. While driving, I trust he is listening to BBC World Service (radio) rather than (gasp) watching BBC World News (television). Yes, the BBC world services' nomenclature is confusing.
