Read this: Why James Murdoch is wrong about the BBC - Mark Thompson - Comment is free - The Guardian

Summary: This is the week of the MacTaggart lecture that ancient religious ritual which each August summons British television's scattered faithful to Edinburgh to talk shop, drink responsibly, and hear an assortment of fatwahs, imprecations and misty-eyed visions from that year's chosen prophet. It's a phrase which sums up his entire case that all forms of public intervention in and regulation of media are both morally reprehensible and practically useless, and that it is the market alone which can deliver brave, worthwhile, independent journalism. There is no good reason why privately owned and run papers should be held to the same content requirements or accountability as broadcasters who reach very large proportions of the public and who, in the case of the BBC, are paid for by everyone. - link
