Roy Greenslade’s column in the Evening Standard and my comment:
Top slicing puts British media on an inevitable path towards PSB on an American model i.e. underfunded niche services for elites and mass commercial services with no real ambition or moral purpose.
It’s also a recipe for even more political interference, regulation and red tape. It will reduce diversity and plurality. “Grants for outcomes” will not produce “I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue”.
