Russia Today Anchorman Accuses
Sunday Mirror Editor of Phone Hacking Knowledge

Mirror Group CEO Sly Bailey has written to advertisers telling them that “our brands are trusted and respected” providing a “viable and valuable route to this important Sunday market…” Might those words come back to haunt her soon?

Sunday Mirror editor Tina Weaver has been accused directly by Max Keiser of Russia Today of knowing about phone hacking. He makes a series of claims about Weaver’s knowledge of phone hacking including that in 2002 she was aware of Piers Morgan knowledge of the neat little trick. Let the circular firing squad begin…

    Cui bono?

    The left of course, smug and self satisfied and carrying out their subversive good works. We must all realise that that old adage about the end justifying the means came from the left and has been the left’s mantra for decades.

    Our media has been out of control for decades, but that has been tacitly sanctioned by our politicoes, left and tight, who have benefited and turned a blind eye.

    Let us ensure that the arrows of our revenge find ALL their targets.

    I really can not get excited over this so called phone hacking. They were all at it and now they are all denying it becuse to admit it in 2011 means going to gaol.

    I can not even get too upset over listening in to Milly Dowlers vmail as I suspect it was mainly about trying to find where she might be.

    For at least the past 60 years the press and journalists have had a disgusting reputation. After MPs they were always at the bottom of a list of 10 most disliked professions (its not a profession, of course, just a job). So really, I cannot see why anyone is surprised by all this. Journalists and modern celebrities are disgusting in equal measure. They have been building each other up to stardom level in the past few decades, trying to tell us how marvellous a newsreader is, for instance. I am so terribly pleased that once again the public can see what a grubby ‘profession’ this actually is. Anyone who has suffered at their hands will be happy about this scandal.

    The judge did not even make an order forbidding McAuslan from working with children. It certainly pays to know the right people and confirms yet again that there’s one law for them, and another law for the rest of us

    Max Keiser is not a “Russia Today anchor” – he presents a twice-weekly opinion piece on Russia Today about financial markets (he’s American, former Wall St. trader), focusing on scandal and corruption (he refers to the big banks as “financial terrorists”).

    According to his sources, 10k a day to a certain son-in-law’s PR company would ensure a celebrity was kept out of a certain father-in-law’s newspaper.

    He also presents a show on Press TV…

    I don’t think they’re bright enough. Barely capable of copying down their Gu@rdian quotes properly. It’s a bit much to expect presenters to come up with their own point of view AS WELL as read an autocue without squinting.

    “1: you make the mistake of thinking everyone who comments on here is a libertarin.”

    I don’t make that mistake, I think most on here describe themselves as libertarian when they’re actually just run of the mill Tories who are too embarrassed to ally themselves with the softcocks currently masquerading as Conservatives.

    “2: Guido is not a liberterian”

    You sure about that Billy? He’s described himself as such, and as much as you hang out of his arse I doubt you know his political leanings better than he does.

    3: Not everyone uses the thumb ratings.

    Result! The BBC has taken a turn to the right in its reporting as Presclott seems to have taken over as the new, balanced, (w) anchorman. Uber-Marxist striking journo’s complain that the new ultra-right-wing agenda of Presclott is a disgrace and he’s a scab to boot.

    The police might have caught Bellfield sooner if they hadn’t waited 2 years to find someone in at his home, next to the street Milly went missing I may add, and then when the new resident advised them they didn’t live in the flat in 2002 they made no effort to find out who did.

    Probably because a Private Investigator hacking into a phone of a missing child wasn’t considered a particularly serious crime when they were looking for said child and of course it isn’t a serious crime or at least wasn’t until Britain had a fit of Diana like hysteria over the past 10 days.

    We have looked carefully at our output and based on our findings, reject any suggestion of bias.
    In our quest for total impartiality, we allow views from across the entire political spectrum.
    Of course to accurately reflect the views of the country at large, we ensure that all right wing views are balanced with at least four left wing views, to ensure our unique balance and fairness.
    I trust this clarifies the BBC’s position and helps you to understand more fully, our committment to honest, impartial and fair reporting.

    If all the press had stuck together and admitted it happened on all the papers, that they were sorry and it wouldn’t happen again the MPs would have had nowhere to go. But they all jumped on the bandwagon and now the MPs are going to roger the lot of them with a thick wire brush. Fuckin’ lunatics.

    When the law prevents free speech, honest reporting or disclosing wrong doing, it is your duty to break it.
    In every tyranny on earth, the law is used to silence people and justify imprisoning those who the state and the powerful want silenced.

    Yes, Max Keiser et al are right on the money – they just add a bit more colour and volume to the message. The people they are unmasking certainly don’t like the truth being told about the global financial ponzi scheme we are enduring.

    Anyway, I fondly remember Max Keiser describing that loathsome warmongerer and traitor Tony Blair on air as a bag of dog shit – so Max is OK in my book!

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
