BBC leader resigns in wake of scandal

BBC Director General George Entwistle has stepped down over a scandal connected with Lord Alistair McAlpine, falsely suspected by the company of being involved in pedophilia in the 1980s.

This was reported by the BBC on Sunday night.

"I have decided the honorable thing is to step down from the post," - said the journalist.

Entwistle was appointed Director General of the BBC on September 17, 2012, only to resign 54 days later in the wake of the biggest scandal in the history of the information group.
