The TV Licence

The only radio/TV news source I rely on for balanced coverage is the BBC. I recently learned of the UK TV Licence fees that ultimately fund the BBC.

An interesting issue to say the least. On one hand, the ability to provide fair, balanced and commercial free coverage by having no obligations to advertisers. A strict licencing regime to pay for it on the other. I am sort of glad I don’t have to pick sides on this one. See this wikipedia page about the debate.
