The BBC, the Tories and Rupert Murdoch

The article/post I could have written, had I taken the time and had I the talent:

The BBC is caving in to a Tory media policy dictated by Rupert Murdoch
Mark Thompson is jumping from the second storey because he fears a new government may throw him from the roof
Jonathan Freedland
The Guardian, Tuesday 2 March 2010

I also had that theory at the back of my mind:

The BBC's big PR stunt - why 6 Music is the new Wispa
It is the ultimate social media PR trick. A company threatens to pull a brand and then sits back and watches as fans start huge Facebook/Twitter/blog campaign to save it.
