Jim certainly did fix it for the Beeb

One cannot of course ignore the whole Jimmy Saville madness. I have this vision of a young James Murdoch (who just got re-appointed to the BSkyB board) writing to Jimmy Saville asking if he could fix it for him to rob the Beeb of the moral high ground just when his father’s empire was on the ropes. In many respects he succeeded.

Not that this gets the Beeb board of gov’s off the hook or nothin! But clearly the tabloids are going wall to wall on the Saville scandal for a very good reason, the more they talk about him and how bad the BBC was, the less they have to consider their own awful failings on phone hacking…or indeed why they didn’t break the story on Saville themselves!
