Autonomous Mind (from whom the graphic is "borrowed") picks up on the Peter Sissons article in The Daily Mail today, repeating his comment that: In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told "it's all in there".

In the comments to the Mail piece, we then have our own Jonathan Stuart-Brown, who also makes some pertinent observations: The Guardian sells only 250,000 copies a day (and falling). Take away the bulk buying by libraries, quangos, unions, universities, charities, and BBC and the real figure is 50,000 genuine purchasers mostly in West London. Yet The Guardian has a monopoly on BBC recruitment adverts (many millions each year from licence fees) which subsidise it and drive the genuine purchases (looking at the jobs). Why will no MP and certainly not Jeremy Hunt Culture secretary challenge this?

The problem with this world of ours is that "miracles" are of a religious nature. But.... one can pray. who knows, the flood may hit London when parliament is in session.

I think this could be the fault line, the weak link in the chain. MPs like Peter Bone, maybe Carswell, Redwood, or indeed any opportunist looking for a headline might ask a question in The House if they see a head of steam on blogs (and perchance TalkSport or Radio 5 and local radio phone-ins, or letters to local editors). If the question/quote is asked and picked up by any national newspaper or The Daily Politics THEN it finally might be that someone suggests a Judicial review of the BBC decision...or just surcharging the Trustees or DG of The BBC. National newspapers do not attack each other but then again if sharks smell blood, who knows ? But above all if blogs can get the BBC-Guardian scam known here and in The USA, then maybe just maybe the BBC-Guardian subsidy may be stopped. Then the global warming, non-elected quango, etc etc etc cheerleader may be stopped. The BBC news editors may have to read other papers or blogs such as this or even books such as 'Scared to Death' and 'Ministry of Defeat' and 'The Great Deception'.
There is a strategic opportunity here if blogs research, taunt, target and provoke The BBC and Guardian to address the inexcusable subsidy.

I wonder how the BBC's donation to the grauniad compares to the BBC's donation to its own writers and announcers? I was listening to the World Service in the early hours today - and had to switch off because the reports are so badly written - they're not even style over substance. Just bad style: and that stops the audience from understanding the substance. PDT_Armataz_01_35

...So I might add to my last comment:
Methinks dumbification of the public continues to be the game our masters play. The milk is sour - poisoned by the euSSR.

Referring to the quote in the article, in the run up to the GE the Tories said they would cease all public service advertising in the Guardian - including the BBC, which is (of course), paid for by the taxpayer. Time to chalk up another lie on the ever growing list!

Visiting Amazon to add Peter Sissons's book to my wish list, I found that one review has been posted. It's a one-star, spiteful, sneering demolition.

The book must be really good.

In the extracts I have read on The Daily Mail website, I have been impressed by the author's account of the organisational climate -- the managers, the meetings, the box-ticking, the buck-passing, the obsession with the irrelevant. Such nonsense is not confined to the BBC, for I saw plenty of it in the organisations in which I earned my living.

That's the sort of climate about which we should be concerned.
