the opposition from Murdoch, the Mail etc is predicated purely on the BBC grabbing a fairly hefty slice of online eyeballs and TV ratings that might otherwise be going to their properties - however Murdoch's greatest fear is that the BBC carries advertising.. because then the advertisers would spread their (finite amount of) money over to the BBC innit
