Self-flagellatilicious

The BBC took it hard today. I was kinda joking about them retreating into hair shirts, but the chairman has already resigned and at the BBC online reporters' weblog every few minutes there's an update on the chaos at their offices.

Quoth Paul Wells:

"The amazing thing is that the guy at BBC headquarters, waiting for his BBC paycheque, has no qualms at all describing the disorder there and complaining about his own bosses' disarray. Try to imagine similar frankness, not only at the CBC, but at any private-sector media employer in Canada. You can't. Neither can I. The sandbox here is too small, the big kids too insecure."
