We all know that the BBC has its failings. Its a huge unwieldy public funded broadcasting organisation full of seemingly important people, all paid exorbitant salaries with excellent perks, most of which are not appreciated by the majority of the population in the UK.
They have a long history that goes back 90 years and in those years have supported the government in its responsibility to keep the population in check, in addition to supplying some of the best journalism and content the world has ever seen.
The BBC brand is a well respect one, well it was until the very recent Jimmy Saville child abuse revelations and talk of its editorial misjudgements on BBC Newsnight.
What began as an ITV1 broadcast entitled exposure, quickly grew into a raging fire of allegations against the late Jimmy Saville and of a BBC cover up going back some 40 years. Each individual expose opened up a perception in the public’s mind that the BBC was rotten to the core.
Now, as someone who worked for the BBC for a time and conducted a risk assessment on one particular operation, I could see vulnerabilities, particularly so, in the area of editorial policy.
I could see that editorial decisions that should have be being made at a senior level, were effectively being past down stream to a contractor, rather than being considered at executive level. And yes, I am talking about editorial decisions surrounding the protection of children, more specifically data that the BBC held on children, through the website.
So, yes, there was very definitely a problem with passing the buck where editorial policy was concerned and I wrote to all those concerned before leaving the BBC, to this effect.
Now, as a victim of child abuse myself, perhaps I was a little too sensitive to undertake this job at the BBC. Perhaps I let my own emotions over run me, but I am to this day adamant that an issue as important as how children’s information is collected and stored through the bbc.co.uk website is effectively a board level editorial agenda.
Ok, so, today I exposed a particular flaw in the BBC’s editorial policy, where kids is concerned.
But I must reveal to you a much larger hack being perpetrated against the BBC.
This hack is designed to bring the BBC down, to leave the way clear for commercial broadcasters, like ITV, Sky and others.
I say this because I have worked with the people at the BBC and I know them to vulnerable to exploitation by the commercial sector, who are well known for using hacking techniques to support their own editorial agenda.
It is true, the BBC are incompetent and even to the extent where some in the organisation have even managed to turn a blind eye to the abuse of children by Jimmy Saville.
But I ask, is the BBC really so rotten to the core that we would we want our media run by the likes of Rupert Murdoch?
This situation was never about the rights and needs of children and more about how to expose the BBC’s incompetent weak editorial management using an institutional hacker, funded by the commercial media.
