A BBC tribute page to Jimmy Savile had comments left by viewers removed by moderators, the revelations published today showed.
A transcript of the interview between Pollard and the former director-general George Entwistle refers to examples of the comments including one person who wrote: "One of my best friends in 1972 was molested by this creep Savile. He was never the same again.
"Killed himself in 1985. How's About That Then?"
Another person wrote: "He was a paedophile. You may not like the truth but he was. It will all tumble out now."
