Clearing up a point on the BBC.

Looking through my post on the news I realised that I had not said that 'In my opinion' the reason Bliar wanted to persecute the BBC was to remove it's teeth and turn it into the Governments propaganda machine. Pick an issue. Push and push, even though the country still supported the BBC against the Government. Remove the existing management and replace it with more compliant management. Then threaten removal of funding and further changes. Result, one compliant, very public, news outlet which will be able to be influenced by Bliar and his crowd.

Freedom of the press. What does that really mean?
