Re: Bye bye Billag [Welcome our new overlord Serafe]

From what I see the public Swiss TV serves mostly entertainment. OK, well, they also buy some documentaries, and run a 19:30 news show.
Similarly radio - except for some cheap "let's invite a politician" talks. I'm pretty sure if they vacated the space the private stations would fill it with same cr@p.
These 1.3 billion CHF could be saved for a better cause.
I have a "personal" gripe with the public media here: I never remember a thing like this to see in either RTS or SRF: a journalist with a mic on the street, asking random people about their opinion, and every n-th person barely speaking/not speaking the lingo. It doesn't happen.
I think the worst thing is that they're a lapdog of the establishment, and this limits the space and means for civic grass roots critic of it.
edit: some of this money goes also to private media, so they'll probably not support "kill Bill".
