Jeremy Paxman is right to criticise the BBC

 

This week Jeremy Paxman – one of the BBC’s highest paid presenters – took on the very organisation that employs him in an interview with the Guardian.

In stinging comments, the Newsnight anchor stated:

 

“It [the BBC] is smug. I love the BBC in many ways, but it has made me loathe aspects of it”

 

“When I see people being given £1,000,000 for merely walking out of the door, when I see £100,000,000 being blown on that DMI (digital media initiative) thing, a stupid technical initiative like that, I start wondering how much longer are we going to test the public’s patience”.

 

“There’s a pile of stuff on the BBC I can’t stand. My idea of hell is going down in one of the lifts in that ghastly new building [New Broadcasting House] in a lift which has Radio 1Xtra plumbed into it. I don’t quite understand why the BBC does Radio 1Xtra, I don’t really understand why it does Radio 1. Clearly, you can meet those needs commercially… The BBC has got an unfortunate history of never seeing an area of broadcasting, or increasingly a web presence, without feeling the need to get into it itself”.

 

Paxman is right. The licence payer has put up with enough. It is time to privatise the BBC.

    1. Jeremy Paxman has taken the words right out of the mouth of the late Mary Whitehouse. The BBC must do the honourable thing and privatise. They can’t continue to spread their propaganda of disbelief, doubt, and filth into the homes of British People. They must seek alternative financial backing. The tax payer is broke. Try Virgin Media, they seem to have money to burn. Down with them……..
