BBC Director Gen quits over shoddy journalism failures

In a recent development, BBC Director General George Entwistle has resigned, just two months into the job, after failing to get to grips with a child sex abuse scandal that has thrown the 90-year-old state-funded broadcaster into turmoil. Entwistle has faced widespread criticism since a rival broadcaster carried charges last month that a former BBC star, the late Jimmy Savile, is now said by police to be one of Britain's most prolific sex offenders.
