Mark Watts on why journalists should investigate child abuse despite flawed BBC report

By Exaro Team | 14 November 2012

Exaro’s Editor-in-Chief, Mark Watts, discusses on LBC what the future might hold for investigative journalism. He comments on the fallout from a flawed report by BBC2’s Newsnight on allegations about child abuse that wrongly implicated a senior Conservative figure. In the interview on Sunday, November 11, the day after George Entwistle resigned as the BBC’s director general, Watts talks with LBC presenter Clive Bull about why journalists should continue to investigate child abuse despite the BBC’s shocking error.
