The Times Online reports today that the BBC will be closing two radio station and shut down half of its website. It will also cut back on importing popular American programs.
Unlike the U.S. media outlets, however, the BBC is cutting entertainment programs. Nothing in the Times story indicates that news gathering will be affected.
Yes, I know this is hardly a fair comparison. The BBC is after all a state-run entity. But then again so is VOA. And it always seems that it is the news gathering section of VOA that gets put under the knife in favor of more entertainment programs.
