BBC to Tierney: "Were You Nuts?"

BRIAN TIERNEY, the publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer and part owner of Philadelphia Media Holdings (which owns the Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com) was on BBC America talking about the Inquirer's bankruptcy case.

"You and some of your colleagues bought the Philadelphia newspapers in 2006 when the newspaper industry was already in decline," the BBC reader said to Tierney (above, center). "Were you nuts?"

Check out the video. It's fun stuff. The news reader is actually rather cheeky and irreverent.

This guy is hilarious. He's popping the funniest questions and leaving Brian Tierney in the dust! I'm actually kind of embarrassed. He's making Philadelphians look bad!

BBC has always had an interesting way to look at things. More humorous in some cases then stern. I can appreciate that.
