WHY BOTHER WITH PAYOLA WHEN YOU CAN MAKEOLA

Here's something for the next media regulator's party you find yourself at - draw the line between editorial and advertising on the TV schedule.

Of course, there's no reason why Universal records shouldn't form a production company, Globe, to make 'documentaries' about its artists - but we're a little surprised at the BBC commissioning that company to make a programme for the public-service networks. See, we're not expecting Globe to be exactly turning out the sort of balanced consideration of his career that you might hope to see on the BBC.

At the very least, shouldn't there be an advertorial warning put on all this material before it's broadcast?
