Mark Thompson: From Pedophile Cover-Up to the New York Times
Posted By Dr. Lori Handrahan On November 20, 2012 @ 12:35 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 11 Comments
As Detective Peter Fox  was speaking truth-to-power about wide-spread cover-up of child sex abuse in Australia, Britain’s Mark Thompson , former BBC Director, arrived on the skirts of New York’s Old Gray Lady  to assume his position as Chief Executive of the New York Times. Before Thompson even entered the building he blundered.
Reporters had camped out on the street, as reporters will, and questioned Thompson about BBC’s Jimmy Savile  scandal. Thompson’s priceless response: “it will in no way affect my new job .” “It” is the BBC cover for the late Savile’s  decades-long rape and rampage of children’s lives. That a massive cover-up of BBC pedophilia would “in no way” affect Thompson’s new job is concerning.
According to Jeff Bercovici  of Forbes, the Times newsroom is concerned. They should be. The BBC Savile cover-up should affect every single aspect of how Thompson performs at the Times or anyplace else. Matter of fact, “it” should affect every aspect of his life.
The response I was hoping for went something like: “Of course the Savile Scandal affects me; who I am as a man and a journalist. As the Times’ new director I will ensure we never ignore reports of pedophile rings let alone glorify and protect child rapists. Never again means something more to me. Now it is personal.”
Sadly, Thompson said nothing of the sort. He did, however, give an honest answer. He will do at the New York Times exactly as he did at the BBC; sip his cocktail  and slip into the shadows claiming he knew nothing. Speculation that Times editors like Andy Rosenthal  and journalists like Nick Kristof  are concerned makes good sense. They should be. Thompson’s learning curve is flat.
As Great Britain is engulfed with “paedogeddon ” did England, perhaps, just export a modern Mad King George to the American Colonies? Is it hoped that Americans, slammed by Sandy , enamored by the British accent, may embrace a man who participated in the media cover-up of a serial child rapist, as a legal letter  sent to Thompson ten days before he left BBC may suggest?
On the same day Thompson landed on New York’s shores, Australia’s Prime Minister announced a nation-wide inquiry  into the systematic child sex abuse by children charities, police, churches, and child protective services. This was prompted by aforementioned Det. Peter Fox .
Paedogeddon is real. Not just in England or Australia but in America as well where high-powered political pedophile rings  are destroying our children. As Suzanne Moore  of The Guardian writes “children have been screaming into a void” for far too long.
Courage is required to speak truth-to-power about child sex trafficking as British MP Tom Watson  and Australian Det. Peter Fox  have done. Gutsy editors and journalists are needed to work with whistle-blowing police and politicians.
As long as Mark Thompson holds the Old Gray Lady’s reins all the news that’s fit to print may not include exposing elite pedophile rings. It didn’t at BBC under Thompson’s leadership and there is no reason to believe this has changed.
Yet, all may not be lost. Remember, after all, what happened to King George when he tried to control America.
