(Frontpage) — As Detective Peter Fox was speaking truth-to-power about wide-spread cover-up of child sex abuse in Australia, Britain’s Mark Thompson, former BBC Director, arrived on the skirts of New York’s Old Gray Lady to assume his position as Chief Executive of the New York Times. Before Thompson even entered the building he blundered.
Reporters had camped out on the street, as reporters will, and questioned Thompson about BBC’s Jimmy Savile scandal. Thompson’s priceless response: “it will in no way affect my new job.” “It” is the BBC cover for the late Savile’s decades-long rape and rampage of children’s lives. That a massive cover-up of BBC pedophilia would “in no way” affect Thompson’s new job is concerning.
