Murdoch, Dave and the BBC

James Murdoch -
a second after remembering the size of his bank balance

With the Tories stepping up their attacks on the BBC - something that will please their media allies (not least BBC-basher-in-chief, James Murdoch) - Ash Atalla has warned against the complacency of its allies:

Meanwhile BBC Director General Mark Thompson pointed out what should be glaringly obvious - that the BBC, unlike Sky, actually invests in original British programming.

Ultimately, though, it's up to the Tories (sorry, 'the Coalition'), what will happen when Licence Fee negotiations start next year.

UPDATE JAN 2011: Looking back at this post again, it seems that Atalla's concerns were proved depressingly accurate.
