Neil Defends BBC......
May 18th, 2022, 9:10am
This is from "The Press Gazette" here, by Bron Maher.

"Andrew Neil has praised the BBC in an appearance in the House of Lords, describing its performance in the face of licence fee cuts as “remarkable”.

But the veteran broadcaster suggested the levy is no longer fit for purpose.

Neil proposed a replacement to the licence fee that would see certain “core BBC” services such as news and arts coverage provided for free to all. But he suggested “ratings winners” like Strictly Come Dancing should be subscription-only programming."
