This is a normal post This doesnt really bother me....
...as another reply states he has worked there for 20+ years....its not his fault Jimmy Saville has been posthumously accused of abusing all manner of people and creatures, he made one bad decision to air a "We love Jimmy" show over an inquiry which at the time had barely any people saying "Jimmy touched me".

It's not like he profited from Jimmy and the other accused being a bunch of nefarious kiddy fiddlers, as far as any corporation would see it...he is getting the money and benefits he had earned up to that point, now he's fallen on his sword. No big deal, not entirely necessary either to be honest as the door is now open for someone else to make a similar mistake and be publicly lynched.

This is a normal post And his resignation has nothing, officially, to do with Jimmy Saville.
He's standing down because Newsnight broadcast allegations of child abuse that were unsubstantiated, and afterwards withdrawn.

Presumably, the BBC has staff lawyers who really should have stopped specific details going to air. I don't understand how they let that one slip past.
