After Newspapers - Who's Next?

,----[ Quote ]

| Two things are notable here. The first, and 
| perhaps most relevant to readers of this blog,
| is that one of the key characteristics of the

| difference between an Internet radio 
| platform, and one for Internet TV, say.

| Parliament was assured the job would be 
| advertised externally. This has not 
| happened, protest former BBC World 
| Services bosses and Russian scholars
