An article that talks about 'The worst BBC crisis for 50 years'

Unfolding claims of sexual abuse against late BBC star Jimmy Savile have plunged Britain's national broadcaster into its biggest crisis for 50 years, a senior reporter has warned.

Unfolding claims of sexual abuse against late BBC star Jimmy Savile have plunged Britain's national broadcaster into its biggest crisis for 50 years, a senior reporter has warned. Veteran BBC foreign editor John Simpson explained in an interview to be aired Monday, October 22, that the scandal had left the broadcaster in a "very dangerous" position. The BBC is fending off reports that it pulled an investigation into Savile's behavior because it would have clashed with tribute programs to the entertainer, who died last year aged 84. "This is the worst crisis that I can remember in my nearly 50 years at the BBC," Simpson says on BBC1's flagship investigative show, Panorama. "I don't think the BBC has handled it terribly well. "I mean, I think it's better to just come out right at the start and say we're going to open everything up and then we're going to show everybody everything." British police investigating the eccentric star said Friday they were now dealing with up to 200 potential victims. They have launched a full criminal probe into other suspects who are still alive. Savile was one of Britain's best-loved television presenters who raised huge sums for charity. But claims that he sexually abused underage girls have left his reputation in shreds and the BBC facing accusations of a cover-up. Two weeks after a program by BBC's commercial rival ITV aired allegations about him by a handful of women, Scotland Yard said the claims had snowballed, with dozens of other people coming forward. The BBC has announced an independent probe into its "culture and practices" during Savile's time at the broadcaster.

BBC Reviews

Nathan Fulthorpe says "Totally left wing biased in all reporting, promotes fake news through dishonest manipulation of programme editing. Is in breach of its charter on impartiality and fairness. It should be renamed Building Britain's Caliphate."
Steve says "The BBC has an annual income of over £5billion yet on 1 August 2020 this vile organisation will take away the free tv licences from Britain's over 75's, many of whom are war veterans, chronically sick and housebound, dementia sufferers, lonely widows/widowers. This treatment of the elderly is totally unacceptable in any civilised society. Show your support for Britain's over 75's and join the mass tv licence cancellation on 1 August 2020. This is the only action that the corrupt BBC will listen to as its a greedy, public funding squandering, self serving irrelevance in 2020 Britain. If you have relatives, friends or neighbors over 75, help them cancel their TV licence and DEFUND THE BBC. You can cancel your tv licence online or phone the BBC on 0300 790 0368 to cancel it. Only your action will stop the BBC ripping off Britain's elderly."
michael Mayger says "Why do I have to pay for TV license for Rubbish that the Bbc churn out, so that I can watch other properly run tv stations who are not over employing and wasting money, Are they all stupid in this country to put up with that.?"
DEAN LOMAX says "Where to begin with the corporation? Not only were they responsible for covering up the crimes of Sir Jimmy! They are now writing letters to the likes of Jonathan King ostensibly inviting him back with open arms! The left wing disease the bbc has caught spews out Marxist drivel. It bias reporting especially during the brexit referendum as it receives quite a lot of money from the Eu itself. Its keeps this fact pretty quiet though. The sacking of Andrew Neil is another disgrace as he was probably the only reporter slightly right of centre. Now we are faced with a wokist bunch of left leaning lunatics that are continually brainwashing society and pushing their new-age agendas onto everyone. The charging of 150 pounds a year to over 75s is yet another disgrace whilst overpaid celebrities are earning up to 2 million a year. It takes almost 12000 over 75s to fund Gary linekers wages. Isn't that sick."
