BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall Confesses on Charges of Sexual Abuse and Pedophilia
(THE INTELLI HUB) Although the mainstream media didn’t recognize the crimes committed by Jimmy Savile until after his death, there were many instances throughout his career where he was accused or implicated in child abuse cases.
In most cases he was able to avoid a whole lot of legal trouble and public scrutiny due to his media celebrity and his close ties to the power of the royal family.
The fallout from the Jimmy Savile case has probably just begun, but the backlash has already been considerable for anyone who has dared to speak out on the issue, with some people at the BBC even losing their jobs.
In the midst of these revelations there has been an increased attention on pedophilia in the entertainment industry and in state institutions like charities and children’s homes. There has also been an increased attention on old cases that Savile may have escaped from during his career.
Additionally, other broadcasters at the BBC have also come under suspicion. Most recently BBC anchor Stuart Hall admitted to sexually assaulting multiple children.
