|BBC bias explained in a single image|
As someone who has worked all their adult life in media I find this very disturbing. I've stuck mainly to commercial radio work but there are many great broadcasters at the BBC. It has bigger budget than any commercial media in the UK and pays the highest salaries by a significant margin so it can attract some of the best. I often wonder if those broadcasters are happy that their paymasters seem unconvinced there is another way of funding them? A subscription fee, voluntary donations, pay per view? The list is endless.

.@EuanMcMorrow it's a key point. Shall we assume it's more important, from your POV, that we have the BBC instead of Jobseeker's allowance?— Nicholarse (@NickMargerrison) March 2, 2015
