Another interesting story in The Washington Post:
Who is this Jimmy Savile character you keep hearing about? An endearingly kooky British TV host — “a kind of freakish Dick Clark,” as this video illustrates — who, since his death last year, is “accused of being one of Britain’s most prodigious, and certainly most famous, child abusers,” with more than 200 victims, report Paul Farhi and Karla Adam. (Scratch that: The number is now up to 300.) Why is this a story in the U.S.? Because the New York Times just hired the BBC exec who may or may not have been involved in spiking a Savile exposé.
