21st Century Wire says…
Has someone thrown Auntie Beeb a bone? What, a living paedophile – to be sacrificed tonight on the public alter with Paxman dropping the axe?
Will it have a pulse this time? A senior politician, Labour, or Conservative? Doubtful. We’ll believe it when we see it…

A ‘political figure’ is set to be outed as a paedophile on BBC’s Newsnight, it has been alleged.
The report on the man, who is not being named, is currently being looked at by the BBC legal team, who are refusing to comment on the story.
But according to the editor of the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Iain Overton the BBC are hoping to reveal to story this evening.
He wrote on Twitter: “If all goes well we’ve got a Newsnight out tonight about a very senior political figure who is a paedophile.”
The Bureau has been working on the investigation together with the BBC.
Michael Crick, a former Newsnight presenter and now a political correspondent with Channel 4 News, later said: “[A] ‘senior political figure’ due to be accused tonight by BBC of being paedophile denies allegations and tells me he’ll issue a libel writ against the BBC.”
