Nick Pollard, who carried out an investigation into the BBC’s decision to drop an inquiry on former presenter Jimmy Savile, said the corporation™s coverage of the world news is œcommittee-driven” and often swayed by pressure groups.

œThere is a slight tendency to naivety to some of the coverage, particularly home news stories,” he said.

“I get the impression as a viewer watching some BBC output that they are slightly too keen on latching on to pressure groups, special interest groups”, said Pollard, adding that his review had supported the case.
