WHY DOES THE BBC HAVE ALL THESE CORRESPONDENTS?
TheBBC has spent so heavily on its coverage of the Chilean miners rescue it is being forced to reduce its coverage of other major events, including next month's G20 summit in Seoul and the Oscars.
A memo written by the BBC's world news editor, Jon Williams, and sent to fellow executives, says the cost of reporting the rescue will exceed £100,000.
The BBC have sent 26 people to the Chile mine rescue. Now I don't know what kind of accountants the BBC have but £100,000 will barely cover the airfares. That doesn't include salaries, accommodation, salaries, expenses, lap dancing clubs, etc, etc. Why do they need 26? Pictures will be readily available from Chilean TV, which they could buy. They can have some fucker in the newsroom explaining technical details if necessary. SKY, I believe have sent three. That's the difference between a profit making company and a state dinosaur.
Why does the BBC need all these correspondents anyway. You watch the BBC news and the people they drag up as correspondents for this and that are incredible and there are new faces all the time. Sometimes I sit fucking gobsmacked!
It's time there was root and branch surgery on the BBC. I see that fucker Yentob is going two years early with a £350,000 pay-off. How much do you want to bet that he'll be gone 6 months and the BBC will bge buying programmes off his 'independent production company'. Piece of shite!
