I wrote a post attacking Steven Joyce and the Government for conspiring with major broadcasters to artificially inflate the price of broadcast fees. If a company wants to pay say $20 million for a 20 year licence fee, (for example) I thought that they would need to find private finance to do that. I’ve since rethought the issue and decided that there is not really a strong enough case to make a charge of conspiring to keep the fees at an inflated level, and that it is probably unfair to malign Steven Joyce on that basis. This is actually a pretty complex issue. The post is taken down.
