Simon Cowell is in the news once again, and whatever the truth about these allegations one thing is certain: the media and showbiz worlds can be quite manipulative.

We saw a week ago how the BBC made use of an investigation by the Taxpayers' Alliance to shut down another story which had the potential to dent the BBC's image. And, it seems, they even co-opted Newsround - a children's programme - into their cunning plan.

In fact the BBC is quite adept at turning things around in its favour. Only this morning, for example, Miriam O'Reilly appeared on BBC One's Breakfast.

Having fought a legal battle to the bitter end and lost, the BBC immediately realised they needed to get Miriam on board in order to sustain an image of the Corporation as fair-minded and diverse-friendly in this twenty-first century.
