What is happening to BBC?

” The Voice from London,” during World War II, Norwegians trusted BBC and Toralv Øksnevad from Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), who presented the latest war development in Norwegian.

BBC used to be a trusted voice globally, not so anymore.

Is there any media filling in after BBC??

The Wire: As BBC Turns 100, Uncertainty Looms Large Over The Future Of Britain’s Public Broadcaster
No broadcaster in the world today can rival the cultural prestige of the UK’s British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). From nature documentaries to period dramas, its programs are watched by a global audience.

Alastair Campbell is absolutely smashing the shit out of this tonight.

The corruption of Sharp and Johnson needs to be pointed out on national TV, but the fact he said it live on BBC News after they tried to undermine his viewpoint, is delicious. Legend.

“They absolutely had a choice.”

Alastair Campbell, former director of communications to Tony Blair, tells @mattfrei the BBC made the wrong decision in making Gary Lineker “step back” from presenting Match of the Day after he criticised the government’s asylum policy.
