In this YouTube video by Clownfish TV, the host Kneon reports on the BBC’s struggles to find a new CEO. The British people are turning away from the public tv network over several factors. “Doctor Who” is its flagship entertainment program, but has alienated fans over the same far left politics that plague “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” Marvel and DC comics, and entertainment in general. Not mentioned in this video is BBC’s news division, which has run afoul of the Brexit movement and other populist sentiments.
Cutting the cord isn’t as simple in Britain as it is in the United States. The BBC is not directly run by the government, but it does charge semi-mandatory license fees from viewers. However, audiences are finding creative ways of getting out if them. Faced with this, no qualified media executive wants the job of running the organization.
