Two More Executives "Step Aside" at BBC

11-12-2012

More fallout at the BBC over sex abuse issues. News director Helen Boaden and her deputy, Stephen Mitchell, have "given up their responsibilities" as the investigation into why a BBC "Newsnight" program alleging sex abuse claims against Jimmy Savile was canceled last year. Boaden and Mitchell are being temporarily replaced by Fran Unsworth, head of BBC news gathering, and Ceri Thomas, editor of BBC Radio 4's "Today" program. George Entwistle resigned from the top spot at the BBC after 55 days, although he's reportedly getting about $500,000 to walk away. Another outrage the U.K. government is looking into.
