It was a general comment on the fact that the BBC considers itself
of looking down its noses at and preaching to other organisations
considering the disgraceful and highly dishonest antics that the
been responsible for. This easily trumps call centre nonsense,
the really dishonest people have been the exec's themselves.
also the gross incompetence of the BBC's decision-making - we're
to be landed with a bill of probably £60 - £70 million per annum to
transmit the BBC's DAB multiplex nationally, which uses
that are 20 years out of date, due to the BBC not bothering to
employ people who understood what they were doing a decade ago -
think engineering is easy, so they employed marketing people to
engineering decisions. Perhaps you consider that to be a good idea?
would Watchdog have to say about that if they found some
doign somethign badly wrong? Oh, I can just see Nicky Campbell
and shaking his head to the camera as we speak. And the BBC has
distributing its Internet radio streams at hyper-low quality for
last 5 years for no apparent reason other than the person in charge
got a degree in psychology, and yet the BBC deems him fit to be in
charge of technical decisions - either that or it was purely down
BBC's bias towards DAB. etc etc etc - there's an endless list of
BBC incompetence and dishonesty.
I'm very much looking forward to Watchdog investigating them. I'm
very much looking forward to teh day when the BBC tries to switch
FM stations, because that should be fun.
You've said all this before, dear. calm yourself down :)
On a related note, whenever I listen to Radios 1 and 2, I don't
promotion of DAB. In fact, they're always doing shout outs to random
foriegners listening abroad via the internet, which seems like a
deliberate promotion of their online streams if anything - in other
words, quite the opposite of what you suggest.
Troll Boy, isn't it time you started revising for your summer exams so
that you can actually make it into the final year of your degree
You know what they say: if you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

"It is the sheer volume of online audio content available via
internet-connected devices which terrifies the UK radio industry. I
believe that broadband-delivered radio will explode in the years to
come, offering very local, unregulated content, as well as opening a
window to the radio stations of the world." - from the Myers Report
