BBC scandal brings down boss

All in all, pretty bad two weeks for the BBC. The broadcaster's Director General, George Entwistle, stepped down today as the journalistic approach to the child abuse cases are more and more questionable. First, the BBC pulled its own investigation into one of its biggest stars, Jimmy Savile - now known to be a prolific paedophile. Now the broadcaster indirectly fingers someone completely innocent as part of this week's Newsnight programme. This knee jerk episode shows just how far departed the BBC is from ethical journalism.
