BBC undermining local newspapers → 

Posted on 12 November 2014

The Guardian reports on a speech by Conservative MP Theresa May:

“If the BBC can provide all the locally-significant news, what reason is left for local people to buy a newspaper? That’s as dangerous for local politics as it is for local journalism.

“The BBC has to think carefully about its presence locally and the impact that has on local democracy.”

The media system is an ecosystem. No one benefits if a single organism consumes everything else.
