Whistleblowing BBC Journalists Forced Out by Savile Apologists and Blind-Eye Turners

Observer columnist Nick Cohen today explains how some of the BBC's most respected journalists are being forced out their jobs by executives desperate to suppress the truth about decades of sexual abuse at the Corporation.

An excerpt from the article:
Nobody from John Humphrys in the morning to Evan Davis at night dares mention a scandal at the BBC. It undermines their reporting of every abuse whistleblowers reveal. It reinforces the dirty common sense of British life that you must keep your head down if you want to keep your job.

The scandal is simply this: the BBC is forcing out or demoting the journalists who exposed Jimmy Savile as a voracious abuser of girls. As Meirion Jones put it to me: "There is a small group of powerful people at the BBC who think it would have been better if the truth about Savile had never come out. And they aim to punish the reporters who revealed it."

He doesn't spare any punches when it comes to condemning "the purge of BBC truth tellers".

Interesting the difference of treatment from the BBC towards its own employees and, say, Roman Catholic clergy.

Considering how endemic abuse is within the BBC, it is peculiar they said anything at all.
