Media oligarch James Murdoch, Damien to Rupert’s Lucifer, has given a key note speech at the Edinburgh Television Festival about the future of “media”. He seems to suggest that the license fee isn’t value for money because the BBC actually give away too much free content ???
Yes, predictably he attacks Daddy’s “nemesi” hurling cliched brickbats at familiar targets such as the BBC, Virgin Media, your Aunt Joyce and anybody who might not wish to embrace the Sky TV “lifestyle choice philosophy” of a KFC bucket of deep fried chickens feet, “Nuts” and “Zoo” laddishness, lots of piss weak overpriced lager and Tim Lovejoy-lite presenters (if Tim Lovejoy-lite is achievable Sky will excel baby! ). Oh and “The expansion of state-sponsored journalism is a threat to the plurality and independence of news provision.” Bless, Daddy must be so proud whilst perfecting that comb-over to hide the three sixes on his noggin and unlike Virgin Media and BT who objected to Government proposals to punish illegal downloaders by switching off their Internet connection, Jim-bob wholeheartidly supports such draconian action .. In fact he thinks they should be executed, live on a new Sky TV reality show “Britains Stupidest Downloaders Who Pay a TV License Fee Whilst Don’t Subscribe To Sky”
But some of us don’t actually see “Sky TV” as a force for good….
