dbo:abstract
  • Meirion Jones is a Welsh journalist. He worked for the BBC until 2015. He is now the Editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Former Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman described Jones as "a dogged journalist with that obsessional, slightly nutty commitment that marks out all successful investigative reporters". Jones has investigated many subjects including the alleged fixing of the US presidential election in 2000, toxic waste dumping in Africa, how Britain helped Israel’s nuclear weapons programme, market-rigging by multinationals, bogus bomb detectors, tsunami aid, terror and security, political scandalsand financial scams. He has written for many newspapers including The Guardian. He also worked with journalist Liz MacKean in late 2011 on a Newsnight investigation which aimed to expose recently deceased BBC star Jimmy Savile as a prolific paedophile. Its suppression by their boss, (former) Newsnight editor Peter Rippon, ultimately led to a major scandal. In 2022 Jones featured in Netflix's two-part documentary Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story. (en)
