Is the BBC still paying its upper middle management insane levels of cash for jobs that did not exist 20 years ago?

I see you are using talking points from from foreign owned media outlets like the Daily Mail, The Sun and Sky.

No, I was using talking points from the ABC staff who seem to be infected by BBC washouts and management structure.

The BBC have a list of some of the people that made more than £150,000  last year:

They have a lot more than are in the £140,000+ range that are in the category of a job that simply didn't exist or need to be done two decades ago.  The BBC hires more people than NBC and CBS combined.
