The Mactaggart lecture

The full text of Jeremy Paxman’s Mactaggart lecture is available here.  An impassioned speech from a man that cares about television, and about news.  His comments on the impact of the Conservative and nuLab broadcasting reforms on public service broadcasting (including children’s television), on news priorities and instant reaction rather than analysis are well worth reading – as is his thinly veiled criticism of the cuts affecting Newsnight.
