Channel Four Would Be Better In Private Hands According To John Whittingdale | TV News

Channel 4


John Whittingdale has never disguised his dislike for independent, commercially funded, state owned broadcasters, speaking today in favour to the privatisation of Channel 4. Despite clarifying that no decision would be made on the future of the channel until discussions of the BBC’s charter renewal, he commented to the House of Lords communications committee:


There is an argument that Channel 4 would have a stronger future if it has a private sector partner who has deep pockets and was willing to invest in the growth of the business”.


I don’t know about you, but this sounds like nothing more than an excuse that leads to a very slippery slope.
