This article by Dr Bart Cammaerts, of the LSE Media and Communications Department. While the announcement of the BBC to mothball the BBC Food site seems at first to be a somewhat trivial decision, it proved to be highly controversial and in the mean time the BBC backtracked in the face of public consternation.
