"11.38 Interesting tangential swipe by Paxman at BBC being "full of radio people", specifically Helen Boaden (previously controller of Radio 4 and Director of BBC News) and Peter Rippon (previously editor of multiple programmes at Radio 4 before being appointed Editor of Newsnight), amongst others.

He is sympathetic to Rippon after his treatment by the BBC, however, after he decided to axe a Newsnight investigation into Savile and was then left to take the full force of the media's criticism with little support from management behind his decision. "
