Here's the long and short of this headline:
Mark Thompson has been dogged by the sex abuse scandal surrounding famed British TV personality Jimmy Savile since Thompson became the CEO of the New York Times back in 2012.
Savile, one of Britain's most famous TV and radio presenters, stands accused of sexual abuse by hundreds of women. Many of these women were teens back in the 1960s, 70s and 80s when Savile is said to have abused them. The BBC itself has coming under criticism for having spent those same years covering up Savile's abuses. The TV presenter passed away in 2011
As to Mark Thompson's role in all this, he was the Director-General of the British Broadcasting Corporation for eight years from 2004 until he left for the USA in 2012. Many feel he had a hand in helping the BBC to cover up Savile's alleged crimes.
