What's Wrong With The BBC?

All of this has many in Britain extremely annoyed, including some who agree with the BBC's slant. We must imagine them asking themselves - at last - why they should have to pay $180 a year to listen to biased commentary when competing networks, perhaps biased in a different way, offer their blather for nothing.

There is a fundamental problem with the BBC and all public broadcasting enterprises. They are magnets for anti- traditionalist, leftist staffers who fondle their ideals over the air, knowing they are in a business far removed from the disgusting commercialism of their competitors. Their revenue is carved directly out of the public's hide.
