It really is time to end the BBC license fee, if this is the way they throw it away.
The BBC has lavished thousands of pounds teaching staff how to learn to use social networking site Facebook, despite its simplicity.
The corporation has been holding day long classes called Making The Web Work For You, for large numbers of its 23,000 workforce.
I'm sure that if a private company wasted it's money like this, the shareholders would be baying for the directors blood. If those at the Beeb are to thick to find out how to use something that a child manages easily. Then they should be fired.
One worker said: 'We're meant to be belt-tightening. It is an astonishing waste of money. Teenagers who can barely read or write have managed to teach themselves.'
Others have pointed out that most BBC staff already know how to use these sites.
Mind you it does reflect in some of the dross they produce.
Lastly, comes the justification.
Yesterday the BBC defended the web courses. It claimed the courses helped journalists to 'develop effective and comprehensive internet research and social media skills'.
