BBC accused of being over pessimistic

Apparently according to the Eddie Mair over at the PM blog

An MP is criticising the BBC's coverage of the recession, accusing the corporation of "dramatising, accentuating and underlining" Britain's economic woes. The Liberal Democrats Treasury spokesman John Pugh has tabled a Commons motion, warning that the "confidence, jobs and livelihoods of real people" are affected by the way events are covered. He's calling for academic research into the reporting of the downturn, and its effect on what he calls "the fragile psychology of the City"."
