Conservatives outraged over CNN photo of Thatcher with ‘pedophile’ Jimmy Savile.

Conservatives outraged over CNN photo of Thatcher with ‘pedophile’ Jimmy Savile. | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
Alexandra Medina's insight:

Is CNN out of the loop?

 

When Margaret Thatcher died on April 8th of this year, CNN released a video with various pictures of Thatcher throughout her life in memory of her. The photo above, including Jimmy Savile, was the most outrageous one featured. It leads us to wonder what in the world was CNN thinking to honor the death of someone being associated with a famous pedophile?

Another blunder, this time by CNN. The worst part of the picture is that it was taken at a children's charity event. Truth be told, it could have been put together by a student worker or intern who didn't know or recognize the guy. Either way, it wasn't an appreciated appearance.

Revenge of Jimmy Savile victim | UK | News | Daily Express

Revenge of Jimmy Savile victim | UK | News | Daily Express | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
A WOMAN who claims she was sexually abused by Jimmy Savile and more than 30 other men at the BBC has vowed to go to jail rather than buy a TV licence.
Alexandra Medina's insight:

The accusation made by Leisha Brookes was hard to believe. There is no doubt in my mind that Savile was a criminal and his actions were disgusting, but I find it slightly odd that Brookes has been fined now FOUR times for failing to have a TV license. She claims that she was abused repeatly by 35 men (including Savile) over a two-year period of working with BBC. She also claims that she tried to reach out sooner, but was told there was not enought evidence to support her case. She also had to have her children put to care because of her health problems and various suicide attempts.

 

I'm not saying that she's not telling the truth, but the line of whether she is suffering from trauma or just crazy is a little fuzzy.

'I want to end it all. I feel suicidal': Comedian Freddie Starr is banned from being alone with his own children while Savile police probe sex abuse claim

'I want to end it all. I feel suicidal': Comedian Freddie Starr is banned from being alone with his own children while Savile police probe sex abuse claim | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
The former TV star, 69, says his life is 'ruined' and admits he is considering suicide if he does not die from the stress first.
Alexandra Medina's insight:

Another celebrity arrested and accused of sexual abuse. Comedian Freddie Starr not long after Gary Glitter, for sexually abusing at 14-year old girl in a dressing room along side of Savile

 

Starr denied all accusations and was not charged with any offence, yet a video showing the victim and Starr raised speculations...

 

Since then, Starr is only allowed to see his children when his fiancee is present as well... this has lead to statements of Starr being on the verge of suicide and so on.

 

Do we think he's innocent or guilty?.....

Millions watched as Jimmy Savile molested me on TV

Millions watched as Jimmy Savile molested me on TV | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
TEEN girl was abused on camera during Top Of The Pops — then told to ‘get lost’ by boss when she complained
Alexandra Medina's insight:

A year after the death of Savile, Sylvia Edwards, who is known as the teen girl being molested on camera during "Top Of The Pops," finally speaks up and gives her insight on the traumatic incident.

 

In my opinion, it was disgusting to think that Edwards informed members of the TV crew of what happened and all they could tell her was "to get lost" and that "it was just Jimmy messing around and she was being stupid."

Was Jimmy Savile Member Of A Pedophile Ring?

Was Jimmy Savile Member Of A Pedophile Ring? | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
Two celebrities, Gary Glitter and Freddie Starr, were arrested this week in connection with the Jimmy Savile child sex-abuse scandal at the BBC.
Alexandra Medina's insight:

Are you saying more than Sir Jimmy was involved in sexual abuse allegations?

 

Even a year after Savile's death, the sexual abuse scandal continued revealing that other celebrities were involved in the pedophilia scandal of Savile. Celebrities such as Freddie Starr and Gary Glitter were accused of being in a "pedophile ring" that Jimmy Savile started.

 

Creepy that others would want to join in on pedophile acts with Jimmy...

Pollard inquiry: BBC 'incapable' of dealing with Jimmy Savile affair

Pollard inquiry: BBC 'incapable' of dealing with Jimmy Savile affair | BBC Pedophile Scandal | Scoop.it
Peter Rippon, the editor of Newsnight, to be replaced after report into scandal is published criticising leadership at corporation. By Dan Sabbagh and John Plunkett
Alexandra Medina's insight:

In October 2012 former head of Sky News, Nick Pollard, was chosen to lead an inquiry into the BBC to report of sexual abuse scandal. He exposed that BBC's "Newsnight" dropped the segment of their investigation of the Jimmy Savile scandal, claiming that it was "seriously flawed." This lead to executives of BBC claiming sudden retirement, and so on.

 

This leads us to wonder...why did BBC want to axe the investigation so badly? What is their attachment to the memorable DJ?
