Re: Jimmy Savile

^ Good piece, but they go a bit soft on themselves for their own failure to investigate and report while (rightfully) condemning everyone else's failures to speak up for these children or to report on Savile's crimes.

Cases like this always bring a whiff of witch-hunt.
I think Savile's own words in his autobiography remove any chance of this being a witch hunt. He was pretty unapologetic about who and what he was.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
