-The BBC on the other hand is apparently not god's concern but that of the public, yet it still begs the same questions. What are we saving it from? The Tories? The upper echelons are chock full of their appointees and sympathisers: they already own it.
And what are we saving it for? The whole of the present media squeallery is chock full of the usual purblind sentimentalists who claim that the BBC is apparently "in their DNA" and everybody else's they presume ... that it has legendary "impartiality" and failing that particular argument resort to the standpoint that we should otherwise be careful what we wish for and better the devil we know. Reaching the tailings, we find that they would very much miss Dr Who.(FFS..)
Well, I watched it on "war footing" against Scottish Independence in the referendum and saw it for exactly what it was: a propaganda monster that was unfortunately indeed very good at using its reputation to flog wholesale UK establishment lies.
As to the "entertainment" If the prosthetic rubber and cardboard of Dr Who is as good as it gets for a revenue of over five fecking billion... alongside the cheap crusts of baking shows and the tawdry taffeta of ballroom dancing then the mugs and their money are easily parted... there's something seriously rotten there.
But credit where credit is due: on politics and news, Murdoch could never be anywhere near as good as the BBC at misleading the public: paying for that is like China sending the family the bill for the executioners bullet.
