Right so that would mean that one year the National Broadcaster would have none but Sky news with little viewership would
To be honest for making such a suggestion, I think Asa should be giving the poster a two week ban, I doubt this will happen though.
There is no room for sentiment towards Sky here, the interests of the British people need to served. Sky shouldn't get to keep it because it would be 'unfair' for them to lose out.
I think the only way Sky should have one over Channel 4 is if a deal can be arranged for one of the PSBs to air it at the same time. But then it becomes a glorified advert for Sky News.
There is little question in my mind given a straight choice between Channel 4 and Sky News, Channel 4 would have to have it, in terms of it being more beneficial to the British electorate as a whole.
I think there is also argument, that if it is given to Channel 4, they should do something vastly different in terms of presentation so it does indeed appeal to say a younger audience who wouldn't watch the Beeb or ITV debates.
