If you want to see a dumbing down of television ,let them rule the roost...

24 hours football and biased information...

Not sure about Murdoch though. Murdoch-grandad was amazing. Murdoch-dad is just motivated by completely different things (he's a capitalist). Don't know much about Murdoch-son...

Capitalist is ok , no problem with that...

He's a rabid right-winger who is trying to manipulate everybody around the world..

I'm not at all, I hate the Murdoch media, biased shite that's killing football.

TBH I'm not 100% committed to wanting to scrap the BBC but it does need a major change, its becoming no better than ITV or Channel 4 and the people in charge seem more obsessed with viewer or listener numbers than quality programming. First thing I'd do is scrap BBC Three and most of the programs on it (a few are a good laugh and I'd scrap them, there is the odd informative show), scrap BBC Four and move its programs onto BBC 1 and 2 and stop the endless repeats of programs that were on two days before, and get rid of talent shows, reality shows, and anything with that cunt Clarkson on, get rid of Radio 1 Extra because its just the same shit rap that's on Radio 1, then see how good it is and what further changes need to be made.

I would also consider scrapping the news on BBC 1 once all the analogue TV transmitters have been turned off, the BBC News channel is great but there is no need for the same thing to be broadcast on two channels that everybody can watch.

The dumbing down of the BBC is unavoidable because they decided to compete with the other channels..

Strictly come Dancing , On ice, Eastenders , Holby and so on are fighting the get the more viewers possible ...

Sky is destroying sports in general and football in particular just followed by the abysmal ITV.

I tend to watch a lot of historical and social documentaries on satellite channels...

Exactly, the problem for me is that the government are providing an entertainment service which private companies are happy to provide. Leave the educational and current affairs stuff in which they do brilliantly at.

ITV was second to the BBC until about 10 years ago, now its probably worse than Channel 5.
