How did this become a story about the BBC?

It really seems very peculiar indeed that scandalous behaviour by a national figure and child abuse in childrens’ homes has metamorphosed into a story about the BBC.

George Entwhistle has been sucked under a whirlpool of inquiries and apologies after seven weeks in the job. OK, the BBC is hopeless at crisis management, is over-defensive and Newsnight made some basic errors, not helped by higher management.

But actually Newsnight has not abused a single child.
