New York Times Company CEO Mark Thompson’s repeated assertions that he did not know, while serving as BBC chief, about allegations of child sex abuse by the late British TV personality Jimmy Savile, are again being challenged.
Nick Pollard, the head of an independent inquiry into the affair, has confirmed that a senior BBC News official contradicted Thompson’s claim that he first time he heard about the Savile allegations was after he left the BBC last September to take up his new post in New York.
Thompson had served as director-general of the British institution, a role that incorporates that of chief executive and editor-in-chief, since 2004.
