Another senior executive at the British Broadcasting Corporation steps down in the wake of a government report sharply criticizing the network's editorial standards. BBC chief Greg Dyke is the second executive to resign, following Gavyn Davies, chair of the BBC's board of governors, who resigned hours after the report was released Wednesday. NPR's Guy Raz reports.
