To be honest I’m too much of a coward to take a stand and re-publish some of the names and accusations being thrown around in the wake of the Savile scandal, but it’s fair to say that a lot of people are involved. The BBC as much as any institution or body of men and women, and an awful lot of current and former employees of that august body have an awful lot of questions to answer right now. Regular readers will know I am no great fan of the BBC, but it’s pretty obvious that many of the people attacking it so savagely right now have their own axes to grind. In particular, it is laughable to see the Sun get on their high horses attacking the culture at the BBC when not so long ago they were engulfed by a scandal every bit as serious and deep-rooted as this one. Savile’s behaviour, the truth of which gets more and more loathsome and sickening as each day passes, was indulged and tolerated by people from many institutions and branches of civil society. The piece I’m re-blogging here makes a number of excellent points with regard to the other recent, serious failings of the BBC that aren’t the subject of such intense criticism, oddly.
