The head of the BBC has quit after they wrongly accused a Tory peer of being a pedo:
The BBC’s top executive resigned last night after the prestigious broadcaster’s marquee news magazine wrongly implicated a British politician in a child sex-abuse scandal, deepening the crisis that exploded after it decided not to air similar allegations against one of its own stars who police now say was one of the nation’s worst pedophiles.
In a brief statement outside BBC headquarters, George Entwistle said he decided to do the “honourable thing” and step down after just eight weeks in the job.
“The wholly exceptional events of the past few weeks have led me to conclude that the BBC should appoint a new leader,” he said.
ITV’s Philip Schofield will be next for his ambush of David Cameron.
After years of covering up for Jimmy Savile in various media outfits they are now dropping like flies.
