Yuck! BBC News has a new look and it's awful: too busy, lots of headlines with no detail behind them. The new look is suspiciously similar to CNN, but less readable. And CNN isn't exactly the model to be following at the moment anyway: it is losing ground heavily to FOX news, which has a website with more detail about more headlines on its front page.
This is the nail in BBC News' coffin for me; I already thought their previous format was too heavy on images and sensational junk, and I switched to the Times a few months ago, which has a clear, simple layout with lots of detail.
