The BBC seems an easy target after fraught weeks of news

Like many things in life, it’s not perfect — but what is the alternative? It’s all well and good to move forward and develop, but only when a better way has been identified. So when culture secretary Nadine Dorries tweeted her BBC death sentence on Sunday, she nailed her colours to the mast by linking to a splash by the Mail on Sunday outlining a funding cut to encourage a move towards new ways of “funding, supporting and selling great British content”.

That’s all well and good but is this progress away from something doing more harm than good or is it another act of national self-harm by taking away from one of the most trusted and respected institutions in the world?
