En­dan­gered whale washes ashore

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

A BBC re­view has ab­solved se­nior ex­ec­u­tives of try­ing to bury an ex­plo­sive story about one of its best-known chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion stars, say­ing man­age­ment er­rors were to blame for the fact that a planned ex­pose on pe­dophilia al­le­ga­tions against the late Jimmy Sav­ile was can­celed. In­sti­tu­tional chaos and con­fu­sion — but not a cover-up — were to blame for the BBC’s dis­as­trous de­ci­sion to can­cel the “News­night” pro­gram, the re­view found Wed­nes­day.

One of the most en­dan­gered whales in the world has washed up dead on a beach in north­east Florida. Marine of­fi­cials said Wed­nes­day that the 26-foot-long North At­lantic right whale washed up overnight on a beach near Palm Coast, about 65 miles south of Jack­sonville. A necropsy will be con­ducted on the beach since the 1-yearold whale is too large to move. There are less than 400 North At­lantic right whales left in the world.
