Meirion JONES leaves BBC
« on: February 18, 2015, 04:31:06 PM »
Do You remember Meirion Jones?

Well he was the Newsnight journalist who decided to expose Savile only to be stopped by Senior Managers who "had been leant on from high"I am very sorry to report that we have no idea who, because a lot of them could not remember very much despite Nick POllard being paid 3 m of licence fee to ask them some questions.

Anyway, Mr Jones has now packed his BBC Bag and has taken a voluntary redundancy. Hmmmm.

So  how does this compare to others involved..

Mark Thompson(Savile who?) remains as editor of NYT(WHO DO NOT SEEM TO MIND Liars)

James Hardy Senior Manager Who believed Jones WAS behind leaks and promised to drip poison onto Jones...
He has been rewarded for this by being promoted to Head of Communications For Journalism.

Peter Rippon Who did more damage to the BBC than any other editor in its history.Is on a cushy number over seeing BBC archive.

Message is pretty clear here. Those who fail to act with honour and drip poison and cannot remember are treated well. Those who are decent journalists caught in a terrible storm have to go. Liz Maclean Jones PARTNER AT nEWSNIGHT also took voluntary redundancy after being told that executives would not put her on air. Peter Horrocks who tried to protect them has resigned.Helen BOADEN who seemed to display cowardice and amnesia of shocking level is  now  Head  of Radio. Pollard is happy to have helped this and will not correct his report. Those who can make him do not want to poke the hive..
I hope that Mr Jones knows that the public value him.

"everyone who wanted to expose Savile was a traitor to the BBC"

This post has to thank Private Eye recent issue for its contribution
