An article from Bloomberg today. Quite long but relevant:

"Frances Cairncross, a politically neutral economist who led a review into the the U.K.ís news industry, agrees. ďThe BBC could do an awful lot more to reflect the views of people on the right of center,Ē she said recently. The director-general wants to widen newsroom diversity, including finding people from white working class backgrounds. But that will take years to have an impact."

They'll just say that Stacey Solomon votes Tory.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Oh dear. You seem determined to ignore the perfectly reasonable point I had made, and your first paragraph is just silly.

Is this the point you are referring to?

"To take an obvious example, the BBC's sports staff don't need to know what's happening in the stock market, or the arts, or in the US election, or in North Korea."

If so my response was addressed to it and perfectly reasonable in the context of the original complaint about the costs.

...i bet their sport's experts are all very familiar with the writings of Germaine greer , Karl Marx and Andrea Dworkin ?

So what do you think they should do? Employ a few extra staff to cut and paste, or photocopy, those sections only relevant to each employee? I suspect the cost would be greater than just supplying the whole paper.

In any case you can often stumble over something interesting and relevant in the oddest of places,

Who knows, maybe the taxman already extracts their pound of flesh from all, or some, of the staff.


As it happens out of interest there are companies out there who do just that for other companies that need specific articles in any publication, a friend of mine used to wok for one.

George Osbourne is being touted as the next Chairman of the BBC.

[Link]

I think he would be a good match for them, a Remainer in charge at the BBC, what's not to like.

And for people like me he has all the qualities that you would expect in somebody running the BBC. He failed as a politician then failed as a newspaper editor so I think he's going for the hat trick.

 


One more point

Newspapers splashed with articles about people not paying the license fee.


it seems the groundswell of dislike the BBC have garnered has finally come home to roost.
