The day before launching a new TV Channel may not be the best time to question the appointment of Ed Richards as the new chief executive of OfCom, but there you go. I am sure Mr Richards is a supremely talented individual, but shouldn't this particular job be filled by someone without party political bias? Richards was a key adviser to Tony Blair and as a special adviser at the DCMS drafted the legislation which set OfCom up in the first place. In other spheres he'd stand accused God knows what.
Still, as long as keeps OfCom away from blogs and internet TV I suppose I shouldn't complain too much.
