Because some things are beyond criticism

The Telegraph reports  something interesting:

BBC 'shelves' Panorama exposé of Comic Relief
The planned broadcast of a Panorama investigation into Comic Relief has reportedly been cancelled after a string of BBC executives ruled themselves out of making decisions about it.
The documentary is understood to examine how the charity allegedly invested £150 million of its funds for up to eight years, before handing the money to the causes for which it had been raised.

Some of the money was allegedly invested in tobacco firms and an arms company.

By the end of last year, the charity was allegedly sitting on £261million in a mixture of shares, bonds and cash.
Even more interestingly:

The six-month investigation also explores how staffing costs at Comic Relief have allegedly almost doubled from £7.1million a year in 2008 to £13.5 million by 2012.

The BBC whose pet projects, like the Labour party, Barack Obama and the Palestinians are beyond criticism.
