    Very amusing.
    Saying BBC threatens free journalism is a nice touch as well lol

    And now we know why BBC is under such attack by Murdoch ...

    BBC NEWS | Business | Murdoch signals end of free news

    News Corp is set to start charging online customers for news content across all its websites.
    BBC will never charge for news so it will cut into Murdoch's backpocket and affect competition ...

    Bottom line I like and I'd like to keep it but I'd like to see a bit more balance. How about some programs celebrating traditional values for once instead of simply social liberalism.

    Not to mention that Murdoch has a huge part of the media market in the UK. He has a near monopoly on pay tv, he owns a large chunck of the newspapers in the UK. On top of that has cornered the markets in Germany now and is winning the battle in Italy against Berlusconi, where Murdoch also has a near monopoly on pay tv.

    So as I said, if we are to do something about the BBC, then we certainly have to similar things to his empire.
