"Worth 1,000 BBC journalists"

That is how Jonathan Ross described himself last night, in response to criticisms of his £6million annual salary. The secretary-general of the National Union of Journalists has responded by calling his remarks "obscene". A bit like the conduct of the NUJ, then...

Personally, I'm surprised to discover that Jonathan Ross has such a low sense of his own worth. After all, a thousand times zero is still zero.

Note: For an example of what I mean when I call BBC journalists worthless, read this story at Biased BBC, as flagged up by Homophobic Horse.

This contribution from the EU Referendum blog is further evidence that Ross over-estimated the worth of BBC "journalists".
