Florida governor orders voting process review

On Saturday Gov. Rick Scott of Florida said he requested a review of his state’s voting processes with an emphasis on areas where voters waited four hours or longer to cast their ballots. “We are glad that so many voters made their voices heard in this election, but as we go forward we must see improvements in our election process,” Scott said. President Obama noted the long lines encountered by voters in several states in his election night remarks: “I want to thank every American who participated in this election,” he said. “Whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time—by the way, we have to fix that.” (Source)

George Entwistle resigns as BBC director general

BBC’s director general, George Entwistle, has resigned in the wake of the Newsnight child abuse broadcast. He said that as the man “ultimately responsible for all content, and in the light of the unacceptable journalistic standards” he would quit. Entwistle had admitted Newsnight’s report, which led to Thatcher-era Tory Lord McAlpine being wrongly implicated, should not have been aired. The broadcast covered cases of child abuse at north Wales care homes. (Source)
