thompsonnyt  121112142207 275x154 New NYT Chief Mark Thompson Says BBC Turmoil Will “Not In Any Way Affect My Job”Former BBC director general Mark Thompson started work as CEO of The New York Times Company today, despite concerns of some Times journalists about his suitability for the job amid ongoing turmoil at the British broadcaster. ITV News grabbed the exec this morning as he was walking into the Times building where he said he believes that the BBC troubles “will not in any way affect my job, which I’m starting right now.” On the subject of the resignation this weekend of his BBC successor George Entwistle, he said, “Look, like many people, I’m very saddened by recent events at the BBC. But I believe the BBC is the world’s greatest broadcaster and I’ve got no doubt that it will once again regain the public’s trust both in the UK and around the world. It’s a very important institution and I believe that it’s full of people of real integrity and talent. I’ve no doubt it’s going to get back on its feet really soon.”
