At Last! BBC Axe First 1,000 Jobs

An £150 million shortfall in the BBC’s licence fee income means 1,000 jobs are to be axed.

Back of a fag packet maths would point to these thousand employees being on £150,000 each…

UPDATE: The Beeb say this round of cuts will save £50 million, £50,000 per sacked employee.

Another Double-Jobbing Broadcast Boss Channel 4 Could Grill

Cathy Newman gave BBC Trust chair Rona Fairhead a going over on Channel 4 News last night for earning half a million quid from her second job at HSBC. On top of the £110,000-a-year she trousers from her 3 day week at the Beeb.

Tune in tonight where Cathy will surely be grilling another taxpayer-funded broadcast boss. Terry Burns is paid a salary of £100,000 for five days a month, which, like Rona, is topped up with a six figure second job as a director at a bank, Santander.

Except Cathy isn’t going to be grilling him this evening, because Burns is the chairman of Channel 4…

Some of the Beeb’s finest public service broadcasting is taken off air:

Owen Jones v Dan Hodges: “The Katie Hopkins of the Blairite Right”

Jones: “You’ve never, ever, ever, ever come up with a single constructive policy proposal about what you’d like to see Labour doing. You don’t add anything constructive to the debate. What does Dan Hodges stand for?”

Hodges: “Actually, I did Owen. I said look at what Ed Miliband’s doing and do the opposite.”

BBC Reporter Apologises for Queen Hospital “Prank”

Well, at least your morning isn’t going as badly as that of BBC journalist Ahmen Khawja, who tweeted then deleted this:

anhem tweets

Alas the statement never came.

First Ahmen claimed false alarm, then foul play:

Ah, the old “my phone was left unattended” banter. Proof, were it ever needed, that you can’t trust the BBC.

UPDATE: A different explanation is offered by the BBC Press Office:
