BBC in turmoil

The Chairman of the BBC has resigned "in the wake of Lord Hutton’s criticisms of the corporation’s reports.

He quit after Lord Hutton said the suggestion in BBC reports that the government ’sexed up’ its dossier on Iraq’s weapons with unreliable intelligence was ’unfounded’.

Lord Hutton also criticised "defective" BBC editorial processes over defence correspondent Andrew Gilligan’s broadcasts of the claims on the Today programme."

This is, of course, a complete vindication of Tony Blair and his government in this awful case. The BBC should suffer; a man was put into a dishonorable position, killed himself, the government was dislocated, invetigations were afoot, etc. They should break up this government monopoly, and sell the pieces. Andrew Sullivan has more info.
