    Does Mark Thompson have a point?

    BBC Director-General Mark Thompson has made several BBC Wales journalists very cross by suggesting that the BBC Wales newsroom holds back good stories from the network.

    But maybe he has a point.

    Yesterday BBC Radio Wales reported in the morning that the Israeli ambassador had said that the Presiding Officer of the National Assembly had 'disgraced himself' by his email last week.

    No mention of this on Wales Today. Nor on BBC Online.

    If they don't report significant stories properly themselves, perhaps it's no wonder BBC network news doesn't get told?
