Reuters - Britain's public broadcaster the BBC announced plans on Thursday to
cut 1,800 jobs and integrate its TV, radio and Internet news operations to
confront the digital-age shift away from traditional media.
Not a good day for folks at "The Beeb." The article goes on to say that "News and factual departments will be hardest hit in the move, which follows almost 4,000 job cuts announced in 2005."
In this day and age of governments hiding their intentions for things like war (I can think of at least one gross offender), is it really a good idea for a news network to be slashing its staff that specializes in fact finding?
