152 new sex abuse allegations have been made against dozens of BBC employees as well as its most famous TV presenter. The new allegations have been brought in the Jimmy Savile sex scandal that erupted last year. About 40 of the accused BBC employees still work for the broadcasting giant.

Early in 2013, four years after he died at age 84, hundreds of allegations of sexual abuse of teens and young people were lodged against one of the BBC’s most famous and long-standing TV and radio presenters, Jimmy Savile. The scandal rocked the British Isles, as Savile was a popular entertainer, radio disc jockey, charity representative, and TV personality from the 1960s up until his death in 2009.

The scandal roiled for months as steady stream of new people came forward claiming that Savile and his cohorts at the British Broadcasting Corporation had abused them when they were young.

BBC Sends Reporters to North Korea Using Fake Student Credentials

April 18, 2013 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Democrats/Leftists, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, North Korea, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the newest conservative news sites in Britain, The Commentator, has learned that the British Broadcasting Service (BBC) may have endangered a group of British students during a trip into North Korea by slipping several reporters into the group using student visas as cover for their activities.

The trip was arranged by the London School of Economics’ (LSE) “Grimshaw Club” and took place from March 23 to 30 of this year.

Professor Craig Calhoun, the director of the LSE confirmed that the BBC used its student trip as cover to slip reporter John Sweeney and his crew into the closed nation at the end of March.

Calhoun says that the school had no idea what the BBC was up to. “The School authorities had no advance knowledge of the trip or of its planning,” he said in a letter.

Report: BBC’s Doctor Who Staffers Used Show to Sexually Exploit Young Male Fans

-By Warner Todd Huston

In the wake of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal, the British Broadcasting Service (BBC) is being hit with new allegations that behind the camera staffers–this time from the Doctor Who kiddy sci-fi show–sexually abused youngsters who visited the famed broadcasting studios.

First airing in the early 1960s, Doctor Who is Britain’s longest running science fiction TV series and was until recently was considered a kid’s show. The allegations are over events that took place in the 1980s.

In a new book on the life of Doctor Who producer John Nathan-Turner, fan writer Richard Marson claims that he was propositioned and assaulted by the producer when he was a teenaged visitor to the Doctor Who studios in 1984.

Report: BBC TV Star Abused Hundreds, Youngest Was 8

-By Warner Todd Huston

British police have finally issued its first major report on the criminal sex scandal that has rocked Britain’s TV and entertainment industry, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), for well over a year and the details are shocking.

Late BBC TV and radio star Jimmy Savile is accused of physically abusing hundreds of children–the youngest of whom was just 8–as well as many young adults whom he met through his high profile charity work at various children’s hospitals throughout England.

Savile’s crimes began in Manchester in 1955, peaked in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and continued at a lower pace all the way until at least 2009, two years before his death at 85.

The police report concludes that Savile committed 214 criminal offenses including 34 rapes or other serious sexual assaults across England. 450 people have come forward with information about Savile’s crimes

500 Victims: Shocking BBC Sex Abuse Scandal Ensnares New York Times Chief

December 14, 2012 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Newspapers, Progressives, Sex Offenders/Rape, The New York Times, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a shocking tally, up to 500 people have come forward claiming to be victims of former British Broadcasting Corp. TV and radio star Jimmy Savile, British police have reported. The scandal has reached from the 1960s to today but has also reached across the ocean to the newly hired CEO of The New York Times, himself a former BBC executive.

New Times executive Mark Thompson was the most recent top man at the BBC of any long standing having served for eight years ending his tenure only this past September. Thompson resigned from the Beeb to come to America to take the helm of The New York Times just as the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal was developing.

In his pre-employment interviews, Thompson swore he had no knowledge at all about the decades of sexual abuse cases perpetrated by BBC TV star Jimmy Savile, many of which the BBC aided in covering up and hiding from both the police and the license-paying public.

But the latest news from the investigation into the Savile scandal raises questions about what Thompson knew and when he knew it and that timeline brings suspicion that he knew about the mounting scandal long before he told The New York Times that he did.

Did NY Times New CEO Thompson Lie About When He Knew of BBC Sex Scandal?

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new timeline focused on the developing Jimmy Savile child molestation scandal that hit the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) this year raises further questions about what the new CEO of The New York Times knew about the crimes when he ran the network.

Mark Thompson stepped down as director-general of the BBC in September to cross the pond and take his place as the new CEO of America’s most famous newspaper, but before he did so he swore to The Times in pre-employment interviews that he never knew anything about what has become another black eye for the troubled British TV and radio network, one that was developing right under his nose when he was the BBC’s chief.

The tale began with Jimmy Savile, who died last year at 84. Savile was one of the Beeb’s most famous and flamboyant TV stars, a staple entertainer since the 1960s. But upon his death several hundred allegations have been made that he sexually abused teen girls, sometimes doing so in facilities owned by the BBC. Allegations have also been made that for decades the BBC knew all about its star’s behavior and entered into a massive coverup of the crimes to avoid public embarrassment.

New York Times Chief Testifies Over BBC Sex Scandal

-By Warner Todd Huston

The turmoil over the sexual abuse scandal revealed after the passing of one of Britain’s most famous TV presenters continues to roil the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The latest turn forced Mark Thompson, the newly installed CEO of The New York Times and himself a BBC director-general until September, to wing his way back to England to testify about what he knew and when he knew of the developing scandal.

Thompson assumed that he’d only have to spend a few hours before the BBC inquiry headed by Nick Pollard, but due to the in-depth investigation the Pollard committee is conducting, Thompson may have to appear again. At this time there is no telling how long the inquiry will detain Thompson for questioning.

Thompson will be questioned by inquiry counsel Alan Maclean QC over the mishandling of the cancellation of a Newsnight TV segment that would have been aired last year featuring an in-depth investigation into the developing abuse accusations lodged against one of the BBC’s most famous TV stars, Jimmy Savile.

Third New Chief in Two Months Takes Over BBC

November 27, 2012 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Journalism, Media, Media Bias, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The British Broadcasting Corporation will get its third chief in two months with Lord Tony Hall being appointed BBC director-general by the BBC Trust. Lord Hall will take his place as the head of one of the world’s largest broadcasting services in March of next year.

The BBC has gone through three chiefs so far this year. Mark Thompson quit in September to cross the pond to take the top spot at The New York Times and his successor, George Entwistle, resigned after only 54 days on the job due to a slanderous and ultimately untrue program aired against a former British politician.

Lord Hall expressed his confidence that he could lead the BBC out of the troubles in which it is currently mired.

“I know we can get through this,” Lord Hall said at a recent press conference.

“It’s been a really tough few weeks for this organization and I know we can get through it by listening patiently by thinking carefully about what to do next.”

The two previous BBC chiefs, Thompson and Entwistle, both left under a cloud of controversy, both having to do with sex scandals.

BBC: Those Terrorists Are as Bad as the Victims

Once again it’s moral equivalence day at the BBC. To celebrate, the BBC took to Twitter to let the world know that it thinks that there is no difference between terrorists and victims.

If you are unaware of what is going on in Israel lately, Hamas and the Palestinians have been launching rockets into the Jewish State killing women and children in a renewed and sustained attack. Today, the Israeli government and her Defense Force (IDF) have at last had enough. The IDF even took to Twitter to warn the Palestinians that retaliation is immanent.

Israel launched a few rockets of her own this week and has made threats that it is considering using ground forces to stop the constant barrage of rockets steaming into its territory, killing innocents.

So, how did the BBC turn this unprovoked attack on Israel by terrorists and a corresponding announcement of defensive action into an exercise in blame-the-victims?

Multiple Sex Scandals Force New BBC Chief to Resign, A New York Times Connection

November 11, 2012 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Europe, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

It’s been a bad year for Britain’s state owned broadcaster, the BBC. First came revelations that Jimmy Savile, one of the Beeb’s most famous and flamboyant past personalities, had spent decades sexually abusing teen girls, but now the broadcast network’s new director has been forced to resign over a wholly separate story based on an un-sourced and ultimately false claim that a British Lord had similarly abused children years ago.

George Entwistle was the man pegged to take over for retiring BBC chief Mark Thompson who only a short time ago left England for America to become the newest CEO of The New York Times. Now, Entwistle, who was in charge of the BBC for less than two months, has had to resign over a program that falsely accused a former British politician of abusing children back in the 1970s and 80s.

This new scandal just adds to the BBC’s woes. In September the BBC was rocked by an investigation revealing that BBC star Jimmy Savile had committed the sexual abuse of up to 10 women, at least one of which was a 14-year-old at the time. This news shocked the British Isles as Savile was a beloved BBC radio disc jockey, media personality, TV star, and charity fundraiser. His flamboyant exploits had been watched by several generations of Brits until his death in 2011.

George Orwell Statue ‘Too Left-Wing’ Says… BBC?

August 24, 2012 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Communism, Democrats/Leftists, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Socialism, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Apparently the most left-wing, government-supported media conglomerate in all of the British Empire, The British Broadcasting Corporation, has refused permission to place a statue of George Orwell at its new facilities in London. Why? Because George Orwell, famed as the author of novels Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, is “too left-wing” for the Beeb.

Upon reporting the news, The Telegraph was a bit taken aback by BBC Chief Mark Thompson’s proclamation that one of Britain’s most famous modern authors is unsuitable to represent the broadcaster. After all, the BBC is considered a bit left-wing itself.

“Mr Thompson’s remark will surprise critics of the BBC, who have long accused the corporation of liberal bias,” The Telegraph dryly says.

Apparently, BBC head Thompson passed this judgment on Orwell, whose real name was Eric Arthur Blair, while at a BBC reception earlier this year. Thompson was cornered by Baroness Joan Bakewell, a supporter of the statue, and pressed on erecting a statue to the famous author and journalist. But the Beeb director instantly dismissed the idea saying, “Oh no, Joan, we can’t possibly. It’s far too Left-wing an idea.”

The decision seems to be set in stone for now as it has been confirmed that the BBC has officially nixed the idea of an Orwell statue.

BBC Chief Admits He ‘Got It Wrong’ For Lack of Coverage of Murders of Jewish Family

July 25, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Semitism, BBC, Britain, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Israel, Jews, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, PCism, Religion, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston, Western Civilization | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

BBC Chief Mark Thompson admitted openly that his network “got it wrong” in its initial dearth of coverage of the mass murder in the West Bank of a Jewish family, killed by Palestinians.

When the massacre of five members of the Fogel family happened back in March the captive British audience that tax-supported BBC sometimes deigns to cater to were left practically uninformed about the incident. As more Brits every week began to discover news of the murders from foreign news sites criticism of the BBC began to mount.

Murdered was Udi and Ruth Fogel, sons Yoav (age 11) and Elad (4), and daughter Hadas (only three months). The family was slaughtered in their beds as they slept in their home. Their throats were cut, they had been stabbed through their hearts, and father Udi was decapitated. The incident was discovered later by a daughter who wasn’t home at the time.

Naturally, Palestinians were elated by this vicious act and were reported to have celebrated by passing out candies to children.

Man That Admitted BBC’s Left-Wing Bias to Head New York Times

June 23, 2012 | Filed Under BBC, Britain, Entertainment, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, The New York Times, Warner Todd Huston | 3 Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

Mark Thompson is the outgoing Director of England’s British Broadcasting Corp. and now, word is he’s eyeing a new job over here in the Colonies. Apparently Thompson’s interviewing to become the next chief of the New York Times. Yes, the very BBC chief that was forced to admit that his TV network was hopelessly left biased now wants to take over the most left biased paper in America. Nice fit, I guess.

You may recall that in 2010 Mr. Thompson admitted that the BBC sported a “massive” left-wing bias and that it was “a struggle” to keep the Beeb impartial.

At the time Thompson’s public comments were considered the clearest admission of the BBC’s left-wing bias by a senior staff member.

Then in 2010, Thompson claimed that he was doing his best to eliminate the bias, but even by 2012 he was still doing more admitting, at that point saying that Christianity gets less sensitive treatment on the BBC than other religions.
