The other day, I contrasted the BBC’s Newsnight and its effort to bring in free-speech segments from us, the people, and CBS News’ retreat from free speech. Now see this (via Cybersoc): BBC Newsnight Editor Peter Barron has agreed to be interviewed for one of the segments being made by a member of the public (see comments 18 and 23). And because the BBC is not acting as a gatekeeper – as CBS does – and anyone who makes a film will first publish it to the internet, we will all see the Barron interview. Good on them.
: I confess: That headline was a typo. But now I rather like it.
