BBC OFFICIALS STILL TRYING TO PROTECT PEOPLE WHO TRIED TO PROTECT SEX ABUSER JIMMY SAVILE
October 23 2012
London, U.K. – Though it may be a little stuffy at times, few can debate the respect that the BBC has amongst the people of the U.K. and around the world. The quality of programming on the station has always been at the highest level of quality, no matter you appetites, and that has garnered the organization a great deal of respect over the years.
That respect, though, is very much in flux right now. The BBC is stuck in the middle of a salacious and potentially very damaging sex scandal involving one of the most popular presenters in the history of the country. That presenter, the late Jimmy Savile, has made quite mess for the broadcaster.
The heart the troubles are accusations, a lot of them, that Savile was a serial predator who liked teen girls, underage girls, and indulged in them at every opportunity, something which was deliberately overlooked by BBC officials at the time. Though Savile is dead and cannot be prosecuted, the people who helped empower him by looking the other way certainly can. Unfortunately it appears that many of the people who covered up for Savile are now having their indiscretions covered up by people who are looking to have those things covered up and before you know it everyone is covered, kind of.
“The developments today are concerning because the BBC has effectively changed its story about why it dropped the Newsnight program about Jimmy Savile. These are serious questions. They need to be answered,” said Prime Minister David Cameron of the scandal.
BBC officials have been reticent to admit complicity in the cover up, trying to cover up the cover up almost from the start.
Savile died last year, probably very happy that he never got caught and got to have sex with all those young girls.
“This is not the type of scandal that could bring down the BBC but certainly a lot of people need to answer for what they have done over the years, not only the people who covered up the deeds but the people who covered up that cover up and on and on down the road which is going to mean a lot of answers really,” said Scrape TV British analyst Nigel Northington. “It’s a great many people really and it’s really going to take a dreadfully long time if they want to prosecute everyone who was involved, so many that it might just not be worth the effort on the whole so perhaps they should just forget about it.”
It’s not clear how many people still working at the network knew directly about the proclivities of the host. Most of the events occurred in the 1970’s.
“Obviously there has to be some kind of punishment because you don’t want people thinking that this kind of thing is okay, that is acceptable, because if that were to happen obviously everyone on the BBC would start having sex with teenagers and that would not be good,” continued Northington. “Obviously the ideal would to be to prosecute Savile himself but because resurrection of the dead is not yet possible they will have to be happy with the people who enabled him, though they should leave the case open just in case the dead can be returned to the living, provided of course he hasn’t been resurrected as a teenage boy which would make all kinds of sense.”
The BBC had no further comment, preferring in fact that people stop reporting on the whole thing.
