Fake “News” On The BBC…

It’s even worse. It’s about CBBC, aimed at a younger audience…this is the complaint I have just submitted to the BBC:

The “Close encounter with a wild hippo” story is presented as a news item but it appears to be a classic case of a “shameless plug” for a TV programme.

Given your target is the CBBC audience, most of them below the age of 18, in all honesty you should have made the whole situation clearer.
