Is Mark Thompson Cracking Up?

It would seem former BBC Director General Mark Thompson, who is now the boss of the New York Times, is not looking forward to his upcoming appearance before Parliament. A witness tells the New York Post’s Page Six:

“I saw a cameraman and a reporter speaking to Thompson outside his apartment before rush hour,” says the source. “He was tense and angry and was talking very loudly. They followed him around the corner and he lost his temper and shouted at them. It really caused a scene.” The source added, “Someone needs to tell him that we can do without this kind of scene happening in the neighborhood.”

Apparently the team from Channel Four were asking the expat about Savile. Add to that the pay-off scandal and you can understand why Thompson is a little tetchy…
