Here's the BBC story on Lord Hutton's devastating critique, and here's the latest one by the Post.

I listened to about an hour of BBC radio's coverage of this event, and it was wonderful. If the Beeb had always been that thorough, they never would have stumbled into this chasm in the first place. It included blunt, no-equivocating accounts of the Hutton report as well as criticism of what may have been left out of the report.

Gist, from BBC:

LONDON -- A second senior executive of the British Broadcasting Corp. announced his resignation Thursday as the corporation issued an unreserved apology to Prime Minister Tony Blair and other officials for reporting they had exaggerated pre-war intelligence about Iraq's access to weapons of mass destruction.

BBC Director General Greg Dyke's resignation came the day after a judicial inquiry concluded the world's largest news organization had broadcast and later failed to retract "unfounded" allegations against Blair and his aides. Corporation chairman Gavyn Davies resigned Wednesday after the inquiry's report was published.
