Mail slams BBC new local TV plans


The Daily Mail today lays into the BBC’s new plans for more local video news coverage, which were first revealed in Press Gazette a month ago.

In a comment the paper says: “Strangling competition, the giant octopus of the BBC is spreading its publicly-funded tentacles even further, with plans to offer a local video broadband service in 60 areas.

“Haven’t the corporation’s empire builders done quite enough damage to Britain’s independent radio sector, without wrecking hard-pressed local and provincial newspapers, which provide such diversity and give much stimulation to local democracy?”
