With the UK reeling over how to respond to a torrent of new abuse claims, Prime Minister David Cameron on Nov. 9, 2012, warned the media and the public of the danger of shredding the reputations of innocent figures.
BBC has been heavily criticized for not airing allegations of child sex abuse committed by one of its star hosts, the late Jimmy Savile. Now it is in crisis because it did broadcast claims against a former senior politician that turned out to be wrong. BBC apologized for airing a report featuring accusations from a child abuse victim which the victim later retracted. - AP
