The argument for the BBC being funded by the license payer has always been that it gives it the edge and can be impartial rather then holding biased views. This has quite clearly not happened in the case of the EU referendum in which we have seen the BBC become a state propaganda machine focusing on positive issues for the EU rather then focusing on the facts and missing several stories from the news that could have swayed voters to the leave side of the argument.

The BBC News has promoted socialist views in recent times along with seemingly being the mouthpiece of the Guardian. For example, it tries to make out that everyone in the UK supports the Junior Doctors Strike and yet I do not know a single person who supports this strike. In addition, I believe that public service broadcasting is out-of-date and also, the BBC are producing too much awful programs like Strictly Come Dancing.
I like Top Gear, football, and Attenborough documentaries. The news is very good as well. Other than that I watch bugger all on it. All the money spent on rubbish soap operas like Eastenders, talent shows like Strictly Come Dancing, and reality shows. BBC is generally the best channel on British TV but considering the money is simply not worth it. If they showed less reality shows, less talent shows,and less soao operas for more sport coverage, more documentaries, and more good dramas then I wouldn't mind so much.
The Jimmy Savile scandal is also a reason why I don't like paying for it.
In the United States, the government can't own a media company because the press will suddenly have a political agenda. The BBC should be privatized to make it more of a viable media organization so the United Kingdom can focus more taxpayer resources on more important issues such as poverty and homlessess in Britain.
It is a democratic way of the government explain his actions and/or provide a content that may be not profitable or wanted by other companies, and besides, privatised network medias represents the insterests of it owners, so is a key to democracy and freedom that we get information from all sides, not worrying about where it comes from, but the content and what represents
BBC is a great channel, I know a lot of Americans who watch it and enjoy it quite a bit. I like it a lot more than most the channels I get here naturally, so I do not feel like it should privatised, they could lose a lot of viewers, not sure if the viewers from other countries help or not though.
