Never mind the Pollards

There once was a Newsnight report/ That editors chose to abort/ A fellow from Sky/ Was asked to find why/ And called it a cock-up, in short. ///http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012/dec/19/jimmy-savile-scandal-bbc-branded-incapable ///https://twitter.com/twitmericks/status/281515194008604673
