Lisa O'Carroll reported yesterday, on a critical New York Times column about former BBC director-general Mark Thompson and the Jimmy Savile affair.

The columnist, Joe Nocera, accused Thompson of "appearing wilfully ignorant" about Savile and, in view of his becoming the paper's chief executive, asked if he was the right man for the job.
