Hutton Report and the BBC

Author
Time
Hey, can anyone out there explain what this whole Hutton Report thing is that's going on in Britain? I know it has something to do with the suicide of some weapon's expert. What I'm not clear on is how it relates to Tony Blair's cabinet and why they're talking about how the Report could spell the end for the BBC. What role does the BBC have in all this? Help me out here.

That explains, to some degree, Blair's potential "involvement". What about the BBC?

Okay HotRod, so why does this threaten to shake BBC down to its core? Why did the CEO of BBC step down soon after the Hutton Report was released? Motti says they broadcast the news. What's so bad about that?

if i should guess, without knowing that much about it, coz i havent had time to follow the news that much the last week, i would say that the BBC is somehoe involved and that the searchlight could be pointed their way if thewy should continue with digging into this murder/suicide...

hehe... this is still a site for the cause of convincing George Lucas to release the Classic Trilogy on dvd, not a dating site or a porn site or anything inbetween... and you people know what i mean!
