Skip to comments.Jimmy Savile scandal: BBC branded 'incapable and chaotic'

A scathing report into the BBC's handling of a shelved Newsnight exposé of Jimmy Savile revealed a culture of "suspicion and mistrust" at the corporation, riven by factions and in-fighting with "rigid management chains" that rendered it "completely incapable" of dealing with the scandal when it was exposed.
One senior BBC executive resigned and another three were moved from their jobs following the publication of the 185-page report by Nick Pollard, the former head of Sky News. After a six-week inquiry that examined more than 10,000 emails and other documents and interviewed 19 people, at a cost of £2m, Pollard described the scandal as "one of the worst management crises in the BBC's history".
"This report shows that the level of chaos and confusion was even greater than was apparent at the time. The efforts to get to the truth behind the Savile story proved beyond the combined efforts of the senior management, legal department, corporate communications team and anyone else for well over a month," Pollard said. "Leadership and organisation seemed to be in short supply."

So the BBC essentially got caught protecting a child molester, correct?
Savile is deceased so BBC was trying to protect its own reputation. Which is ironic since now we know (and have known) its reputation: ‘incapable and chaotic’.
BBC cleansed Western culture and ethics and something filled the void. Sometimes it is call evil and other times, criminality, chaos, distrust and hate. It does ravish children, among other things.
