Have you ever tried to do serious research on the internet? Look at the slop that passes for research on Yahoo! Answers and much of Wikipedia. Just for starters. There is good stuff but most is crap. Serious journalism does cost money, which is why the FT costs £2 a day and Reuters does not give away its company research.

I would trust the BBC a lot more than any of the first four posters here. What are a bunch of Sun reading knuckle draggers doing on a serious business site?

Hard to say what’s worst about the BBC – the endless patronising drivel, the corporation’s self-obsession, or the big lie at the heart of the corporation: its insistence that we all love it so dearly, while simultaneously employing a vast private police force to ensure that anyone who refuses to pay for it can be sent to prison. There may be a case for public broadcasting, but the BBC is not a public broadcaster. It operates entirely in its own interests and those of the politicians who sustain it.

They never are when you can exact revenues on pain of imprisonment from everyone whether or not they want your crappy product.

Oh….and the BBC who wasted over £2billion+ of the publics money on new vanity building work… a recession….just to please their union lackies!

yep…thanks for that Mr Thompson!

By: CharlietheChump Mon, 26 Sep 2011 17:27:25 +0000 OK, OK we get it, BBC all good, nasty internet bad, cant be trusted, not professional, also too cheap compared to bloated journo/exec packages and bureaucracy?

This from the organisation that championed the EU/Euro lie.

Keep on dreaming baby but when you wake up it will all be so different . . .
