The license fee debate moves ever forward February 9, 2010Posted by N.C.OnlineTraining in Uncategorized.
Very interesting news story today about the BBC revealing how much it pays its stars. Well, almost revealing. They’ve released a total figure of £229million of license fee payers money which goes to lining the pockets of its highest paid presenters such as Jonathan Ross and Chris Moyles.
Many people (well, the Daily Mail) are calling for the BBC to reveal individual figures for its presenters but the BBC have declined, stating that it would damage the commercial value of the presenter when they attempt to get other jobs. True, but when you’re funded by the public, you kinda have an obligation to tell the truth. Just like politicians do…
