The News of the World

14 Jul

The phone tapping scandal at The News of the World has reached a new low with the revelation that they paid private investigators and allegedly the Police for information and to tap the mailboxes of Millie Dowler, victims of the 7/7 London bombings and even the families of the 9/11 victims……

Strange how all the journalists and editors involved seem to be very cosy with our political leaders on all sides of the house and, funny how they seem to have had no knowledge of any of these obscene practices going on right under their noses.  As the editors one would have expected them to question where they were getting their stories from……

You may have also noticed the change in rhetoric from our politicians who are now expressing their disgust at the practice.  Yet                                                                                                                                   again proving just how shallow they really are.  Surely, during the long boozy lunches, no doubt paid for at the tax payer’s expense, the subject must have come up over the past ten or so years?  It probably did but when it suites them they’re all quite happy to court the newspapers when their opinions can help win them the votes they need to carry on empire building and furthering their own political carriers……

Personally, I’ll be glad to see the back of the ‘red tops’ in preference to the quality journalism of The Guardian and The Independent.  My only hope is on the way to achieving this goal the politicians who courted the gutter press are exposed                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

in the same way as the people who’s dubious practices led to their downfall……
