Michael Cricks tweet says enough.



But you can read the Guardian article for the rest.

BBC News to cut 415 posts

Absolutely.

The licence fee settlement of 2010 is to blame.

But surely there is a better way 4 years later of saving money?

To cut something over 400 journalist posts and some of those vitally important to investagative journalism is a real worry. eg no more reporters on Panorama, have no idea why Newsnight gets more? That seems unbalanced?

In fact the whole sorry statement from James Harding is unbalanced.

He seems to use digital technology as another reason for cutting journalists. That is just so depressing, well researched  and identified News is what is important, however that is delivered is secondary.


Good luck to the NUJ and Bectu next week, I hope that as many journalists as possible support the strike. And I hope the public support them and that the public grasp the fact that they will be the losers in a society that has damaged journalistic capability on their behalf.


The savings that have to be made MUST come from the bloated management layers and executive layers. No doubt about that.
