Beeb Watch--Sack Gilligan! MPs are

Beeb Watch--Sack Gilligan!

MPs are turning up the heat on the BBC.

Money quote: "Just as you sacked Rod Liddle [the Guardian columnist and former editor of BBC Radio 4's Today] you ought to give Mr Gilligan a choice between writing controversial polemical articles and continuing to work for the BBC. There's no doubt he should have been told long ago to stop writing these articles," said Mr Kaufman."

Indeed. Maybe Bill Keller will send the same message to his troops?

Meanwhile, are the Beeb's finances as bad off as Enron's were?

Well, not really. But this is humorous.
