    Somehow I don't really expect the BBC to give an Austrian school analysis of the recent financial collapse. I like watching fox business on youtube, I still don't see why it matters what your view of it is. I'm an atheist but I wouldn't ban the God channel, why not let folks watch whatever they like? I don't really like the whole "we can't let this happen otherwise people might watch news that contradicts my views" attitude that I keep seeing.

    Would you ban the daily mail? I don't see why people should be allowed to read that (which, again, is a paper that I hate) but I can't watch libertarian TV if I want to.
    If your not getting satisfactory service from the BBC on business and finance, then there are other media outlets in the UK. On Sky, CNBC and Bloomberg. In Newspaper, the financial times...

    There are already outlets where you can view libertarian, Authoritarian, or even extremist views. You also have the platform to have a say.

    We do not need to foxify or MSNBC the news provided on the television.

    "we can't let this happen otherwise people might watch news that contradicts my views" - In regards to this on tv, I don't want my news to be infected with opinions. I am satisfied with the BBC, Sky, and ITN, already.

    There is a fox news channel on Sky. I do not want a UK version.

    I would not ban the Daily Mail.
