Two headlines

Two headlines:

Children's books 'ousted by DVDs' - BBC website

Booktrust survey reveals a greater enthusiasm for reading (Opens as PDF) - Children's Services Weekly

You know where I'm going with this, don't you? Yes, these widely different headlines refer to the same report. If you want to see the original research, to decide which report got it right, you can look here. To my mind, Education Publishing's version is spot on, and the BBC's article is another example of what a grubby, sensationalising, tabloid organisation the BBC is becoming.
