Polish public television needs a bail-out

Bail-outs are all the rage, yet I'm still in debt. If only I had attempted to sell a few cars last year.

Anyhoo, according to Broadband TV News, Polish president Lech Kaczynski has vetoed the country’s proposed new media law, which would have scrapped receiver licence fees. President Kaczynski feels the new media law in its current form would create more problems for Polish public broadcasting than it would solve. One of the solutions he may consider to help fund TVP could be the addition of a PLN 5 (€1.56) fee to electricity bills, payable by each household.

For €1.56 a month, I hope some of the programming includes something YouTube worthy so I can link to it on this blog. That's all I ask for, Lech.
