Opinion: Share story blown out of proportion

The multimillionaire businessman, Greg Dyke, has accrued substantial media stocks over the years. Having previously agreed with the BBC hierarchy to sell his shares in Granada by April this year (when he was due to take over) the incoming director-general of the BBC has faced enormous pressure to take immediate action following a Sunday newspaper ’expose’. The BBC has known about Dyke’s Granada shares for months. Funny thing is, apart from a flu scare, there hasn’t been much to fill the headlines. A storm in a teacup, clearly.
