Honey I shrunk the BBC

It's all getting rather silly. An obvious problem for traditional news and entertainment media is the colossal resource that is the Internet. It has caused them to shrink enormously relative to the global information pool. They will have to adapt or die, although ingrained habits may keep them afloat for a while yet. The way we in the UK are forced to keep the BBC afloat is beginning to look very silly indeed.

Unfortunately a lot of the information on the internet is unregulated.

Is the BBC any better though ?

Hi EK and welcome.

I suppose internet info is regulated by what we choose to look at or ignore, believe or disbelieve. Not perfect, but better than too much regulation I'd say.

Certainly better than always getting the BBC version of things which we now know (thanks largely to the internet) is pretty narrow and misleading.
