BBC independence 'eroded', says director general - BBC News
In a speech to business leaders on Monday, Tony Hall will urge changes to the way the broadcaster is regulated. He wants licence fee payers to have a greater say than politicians. Lord Hall says there has been a "major change" over the past 20 years which has made the foundations of the BBC's independence "weaker". The government has yet to comment. "When I was working in news and current affairs in the '90s, the independence of the BBC was protected by a set of quiet customs and traditions," he will say. "Back then it was Willie Whitelaw who'd provided us with the certainty of a 15-year Charter, underpinning our independence by allowing us stability through the political cycle. [...] He also suggests recent licence fee settlements have been decided behind closed doors without a "full process".

Cameron’s monkeys are feasting on the BBC’s nuts | Comment is free | The Guardian
‘The culture secretary, a massive fan of torture porn, had strung the director general over a meat hook and spat into his face while dressed as an old woman’ Culture secretary John Whittingdale. [...] In January 2014, when a critically endangered water lily was stolen from Kew Gardens, the former Conservative MP Louise Mensch tweeted on her Twitter, “Got to say what’s the point? Ordinary plant hardly worth saving.” The Conservatives can’t even see the point of flowers. It’s asking a lot to expect them to see the point of the BBC. It doesn’t even attract bees.

George Osborne forces BBC to pay for over-75s' TV licences | Media | The Guardian
+ the short-fall from people not paying TV licence because they don't watch live TV, only catch-up on the iPlayer (loophole) // bit.ly/1KLEiJo - BBC supporters say funding deal will cause cuts to jobs and services [...] “So sad to see the government’s demonising of the BBC. Best in the world at what it does, the BBC is a British success story.” [...] [estimates of cut up to 12%] [...] “awful” and “quick and dirty deal” [...] “It feels as if the BBC had a gun to their head and chose to get shot in the leg instead. It is bound to lead to cuts in jobs, services and quality. It could well mean the end of free TV licences for the elderly.” [...] a bullying backroom deal over a couple of days. //&! bit.ly/1CmmWzM - It’s hard fighting in the digital age, but picking up the tab for free pensioner TV licences is a perilous choice &! bit.ly/1LR9nuv
