"The point of public service broadcasting is, one would assume, to address some failure in the broadcast market -- to produce and air content which benefits the public, and which would not otherwise be produced or aired by commercial players. But if you buy this market failure argument, you have to concede that ‘public service broadcasting’ is likely to be a fairly elitist project." (01/16/12)
