Our Media Are the Beneficiaries of £322 Million of Taxpayers’ Money From Government C0VID Advertising Until March 2022. The UK Government Is Now the Biggest Spender of Advertising in the UK
By James Melville
Our media are the beneficiaries of £322 million of taxpayers money from government Covid advertising until March 2022. The UK government are now the biggest spender of advertising in the UK. No wonder the media doesn’t bite the hand that feeds them.
Here’s what others had to say:
Be intersting to see how much they were paid pre covid, James.
The UK Government has gone from being ranked 19th in 2019 to 1st in 2021 – in terms of media advertising spending levels.
In Aus, the government cut them tax breaks, threaten to impose various conditions on their media licence or revoke it altogether.
The state of Victoria banned Sky News on all public transport for being “too far right”.
All MSM companies are controlled by intel agencies anyway.
100% correct. If the government stopped advertising the pandemic, would we even know we were in one?
And we wonder why the media pushed this message so much. They wanted every piece of the pie. Corruption at its core.
Albeit indirectly that’s inching towards state control of the media. That is truly scary as once you’re in that place I imagine it’s hard to get back out. We are gifting far too much control to govt. And in Scotland we appear to be doing it with a big daft smile on our face?
Same here in America. It’s like most never learned about why our founders fought so hard for an independent country with the laws that are our Constitution.
