George Entwistle has resigned as Director General of the BBC and the newspapers are giving over pages and pages of gleeful newsprint to the ins and outs of the BBC Under Pressure.
Who will be next? What is the future for Lord Chris Patten? Who agreed the £450k pay-off for the departing DG? What will happen to Newsnight, for so long the Beeb's flagship late night news programme?
The media loves nothing more than a story about itself. It's become narcissistic in its enjoyment of the discomfiture at the BBC.
My fear is that the
story which really matters is being forgotten, being pushed into second place. You remember, that's the one about the countless children horribly abused by people in power, people they should have been able to trust, people who took advantage of
their vulnerability. Children whose lives have been at best damaged, at worst ruined.
Keep up the pressure on the BBC, by all means. Let's not get in the way of a good story. But,
in this week of Children in Need, can we please, please, please get back to uncovering - and reporting on - the injustices which have been covered up for too long?
For the sake of the children.
