The British public broadcaster has suspended all investigations by its flagship current affairs programme, Newsnight, after a politician was wrongly named on the internet as a paedophile.

Allegations are that the police leaked the (wrongly) suspected identity of a child molester to the BBC. Once more, Her Majesty’s Press and the police are accused of dubious, even witch-hunting tactics. (This does not mean that there are no crimes to be investigated.)
