Turmoil At The BBC

The British Broadcasting Corporation is reeling from two overlapping crises.

The British Broadcasting Corporation is reeling from two overlapping crises. Earlier this year, it emerged that the network's flagship public affairs program buried an investigation into sexual abuse by an iconic television host. More recently, the same program falsely implicated a former political leader in a separate sexual abuse case. And now, The New York Times finds itself embroiled in the mess after hiring the former head of the BBC to lead as its CEO. We explore the ongoing turmoil at the media giant.
