Murdoch Press Sinks to New Depths of Depravity, Hacking the Phones of Murdered School Girls

Politics / Mainstream Media Jul 06, 2011 - 12:22 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a cancerous growth at the heart of British journalism and it emanates out of the Murdoch Press / News International that as unfolding revelations show permeates the whole print mainstream press.


The phone hacking scandal started with celebrities such as Jude Law and Sienna Miller suing for invasion of privacy has now expanded to involve some 50 police officers investigating the growing list of allegations centred around the hacking of the mobiles of potentially tens of thousands of individuals from celebrities to police officers to murdered school girls and their parents.

News of the World Allegations Include:

  • Milly Dowler - The 13 year old abducted and murdered school girl's mobile phone was hacked during the police investigation, messages left were deleted (to make room for new messages) which gave false hope to her parents that she was still alive.
  • Metropolitan Police- Major cases investigating officers placed under News of the World surveillance
  • Metropolitan Police - Officers bribed for information
  • 7/7 Terror attack victims family phones hacked
  • Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman - Soham murdered school girls Parents phones hacked
  • Politician Phones Hacked

The culture at the News of the World for many years if not decades was a case of anything goes, with acts of criminality justified in the name of getting a story. Now, ironically those at the centre of the storm have asked for their privacy be respected something they never considered when hacking the phones of parents of abducted school girls.

Political implications are that both major parties have always fought to be on the right side of the Murdoch Press empire, under the false impression that the Murdoch Press helps them win elections when the truth is more that the Murdoch press is a self publicity machine that bets on the winning horse during election campaigns. A revolving door exists between the Murdoch press and government as illustrated by Andy Coulson, former editor of the News of the World as David Cameron's top aide at Number 10 until forced to resign as a consequence of the phone hacking scandal.

The News of the World is not an isolated case but as we will find out this level of criminality is rife in the tabloid press and probably also extends to the broad sheets as they have adopted ever more desperate measures to fight for a diminishing reader base as a consequence of the FREE Internet Press against which they cannot compete.

At the end of the day the blame lies with you the reader, for you choose to finance the deprave activities of the likes of the News of the World by buying their papers and services such as the Sky Satellite service. The blame lies with you the advertiser for you choose to have you name associated with alleged criminals that seek to profit from the murder of school girls.

Rupert Murdoch cry's crocodile tears by calling the allegations 'deplorable' as News Corp fights to contain the potential loss of revenues.

What You can Do ?

  • Boycott Murdoch Press in totality.
  • Cancel your Sky Subscription
  • Email and Tweet advertisers
  • Hold your corrupt politicians to account for their close relationships with the media empires.
  • Boycott the mainstream press, support the Free Independant Media
  • Put Pressure on your MP to prevent Murdoch Press taking full control of BSkyB
  • Businesses boycott services that seek to profit from invasion of privacy such as Getty Images

What comes Next ?

Revelations will follow form the police investigation that many other newspapers were also involved in similar alleged criminal activities as the News of the World.

ok nadeem -- that sounds good but i watch sky for nothing but the cricket. international cricket is also a major racket but i love to watch the way bowlers and batsmen fight it out. how would i watch cricket without sky as they have a monopoly on everything and it's uncle.

boycott murchoch

Have boycotted all Murdoch's dirty dealings for years - he has been on my number 1 s/list for 20 yrs. Shares it with Walmart and Monsanto. Not surprising a financial guru has only just discovered his evil ways - some of us just wouldn't buy shares in a company that is corrupt and has been since old man Murdoch started it.

Murdoch

Fantastic article, I sincerely hope this goes all the way to the top of the heep. I dont think these politicians were on his side to "win" ever but more that they are all dirty and at some point brought to a meeting with audio of their conversations with corporate kickbacks, call girls, drug dealers or whoever and told if they dont play ball (or cricket) it would be revealed and they would be shattered in everyway.

Hence it is not likely they desired to be his friend but were scared shitless as to what they had dirt on EVERYONE. This guy is a billionaire and a few million a year in politicians, cops, judges or whoever is nothing.

I doubt we really get to the end of this... WHY? because it is highly likely the same crooked cops will be investigating other crooked cops... or of course themselves and the right honourable (Or whatever they call the guys with the whigs... lord chancellor etc.) will seal up documents and testimonies like they did with blair and that dr guy who was killed and all other matters that have a remote chance of shining light into the ratty sewers of corrupt drug dealing murdering money laundering cops judges politicians and money men.

The people will do virtually nothing and sit back and watch the whole fiasco unfold, and go right back to watching celebrities fly around and go shopping on the beach.

My sincere hope is being the rat he is that Cameron will try to put him down to save his ass and a bunch of rats trying to save their asses will rat each other out and we will get to hear some real dirt and the stuff these guys are up to on a daily basis.

Some group of people will need to be sure they secure any and all documents and recordings and keep them away from the corrupt cops who will seek to sabotage this whole thing.

Someone will have to go down and their will be blood, i hope its all of them and we can clean up this cesspool so that the people who beleive the royals and all the like globally can do no wrong (including kill one of their own etc.) have it handed to them.

Boycott all of these fools and with the same fervor and drunken follishness you put into your sport matches go down to the court houses and cop shops and demand and see to it this goes to justice fairly and cleanly
