Why do we need that licence fee again?
Posted by rantingkraut on December 3, 2006
One reason why we need a protection racket to fund the BBC is apparently that British TV viewers aren’t bright enough to demand the right contents without state guidance. If we just let the private sector take over, we might get the kind of stuff we see in America. From the darker reaches of the private networks, the likes of Howard Stern or Penn and Teller might influence our fragile minds.
So, for all that I can see, the sooner we tell the BBC to survive on voluntary subscriptions the better.
