BBC journalists paid up to 40 per cent more than commercial rivals

'BBC journalists are paid up to forty per cent more than their competitors in the commercial sector, according to a leaked review of salaries in the corporation's news division.

Years of union-backed pay rises, as well as top-up allowances unheard of among commercial rivals, have pushed BBC journalists' salaries far in excess of staff at organisations such as Sky News and ITN, according to a pay review leaked to the Daily Telegraph.

The report, carried out for the BBC by financial consultants PwC, warns that rank-and-file staff in the BBC's 7,000-strong news division enjoy salaries that are "higher than the market median".'

More here at The Telegraph but obviously not from the overpaid journalists at the 'unbiased by Charter' but biased in reality BBC.
