Crisis At The BBC: Britain’s Public Broadcaster In Turmoil 
——危机中的BBC:英国的公共广播公司“乱”字当头
                                                       

By Catherine Mayer

Here is the news. On the forecourt of the BBC’s newly revamped central London headquarters, BBC journalists are jostling for elbow room with throngs of competitors. Their prey: the BBC’s managers—those still left in jobs. The storied institution, famed for journalistic excellence and high-quality creative output, is at the center of a media storm. The apparent reassurance from Downing Street—the U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron does not believe the BBC is facing an “existential crisis,” said a Downing Street official on Nov. 12—highlights the damage this storm could do. The BBC will survive, but the organization that emerges could look quite different, some of its familiar features blown away.


The crisis is entirely of the broadcaster’s own making.  Allegations10 last month that the BBC  had not only overlooked a pedophile in its midst, but may have inadvertently fostered Jimmy Savile’s predatory career by making him the king of youth presenters, highlighted huge historical failures of management. The chain of flawed decisions that last year saw its 32-year-old flagship current affairs show Newsnight shelve a post mortem investigation into Savile as its entertainment divisions prepared adulatory pap about Savile potentially implicated the management class of 2011 led by former Director General Mark Thompson. He exited the BBC just two months ago and is expected to take up a fresh challenge, as the chief executive of the New York Times, on Nov. 12.

    新闻在这。英国广播公司(BBC)位于伦敦市中心的总部翻修一新,在其前庭,BBC的记者与大批其他媒体的竞争者争抢一席之地的报道位置。他们的目标:BBC仍然在职的管理人员。以出色的新闻报道和高质量、富有创意的产品而闻名的这家机构,目前正处于一场媒体风暴的中心。唐宁街一名官员11月12日称,英国首相戴维·卡梅伦相信BBC不会面临“生存危机”。这一来自唐宁街的高调打气行为凸显了这次风暴可能造成的损害。BBC会渡过危机,但经过风暴洗礼的它看起来可能全然不同,一些人们熟悉的特点将荡然无存。


    这场危机完全是这家广播公司自身所致。上个月,BBC被控在吉米·萨维尔的恋童癖行为过程中对其失察,之后又无意间将他打造成头牌青年主持人而助长了其犯罪,这些指控凸显了历史上严重的管理失误。BBC做了一系列错误的决定,去年已经播放32年之久的重头时事新闻栏目《新闻之夜》把对萨维尔的事后调查束之高阁,而娱乐板块为萨维尔准备了谄媚的软性报道,这都暗示了2011年由前总裁马克·汤普森领导的管理层的态度。汤普森两个月前刚刚离开BBC,有望迎接新的挑战,即将于11月12日担任《纽约时报》的首席执行官。
