Britain’s culture secretary Oliver Dowden has denied a report that the government has asked right-wing commentator Charles Moore and former Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre to fill two powerful UK media jobs.

The Sunday Times reported that Moore has been tapped to be the next chair of the BBC, while Dacre is set to be installed as the new chair of UK media regulator Ofcom.

The government is responsible for recruiting for both roles and the Sunday Times said prime minister Boris Johnson wants the pair, both ferocious critics of the BBC, to usher in a “revolution” in UK broadcasting.

Senior government insiders told the newspaper that hiring Moore as a replacement for outgoing BBC chair David Clementi is a “done deal,” while Johnson “wooed” Dacre for the Ofcom job over drinks at Downing Street in February.

From prime minister to podcaster, Paul Martin speaks on racism, education and inequality

Former prime minister Paul Martin is trading in his diplomat’s hat for a set of headphones as a podcaster in a new series offered by the Conference Board of Canada. 

The series, called Bright Future, hears from senior-level executives from some of the country’s biggest institutions.

Martin’s episode is available today, and focuses on what he calls the living standards gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians. 

Those gaps became apparent when Martin was designing educational programs for high schoolers through his organization, the Martin Family Initiative. 

“There is a high school business course given in almost every provincial high school in the country, but it’s a high school business course given very much to non-Indigenous people based on non-Indigenous ways of life,” Martin said.
