No Tragedy Hacked Off Won’t Exploit

Hacked Off would never exploit a tragedy to launch an opportunistic PR campaign to promote themselves in the media, would they? Arriving in journalists’ inboxes this morning came a headline-grabbing Hacked Off press release demanding the chair of IPSO, the new press regulator, condemn “breaches” of the PCC Editor’s Code over the Robin Williams story today. Hacked Off director Joan Smith spent the day offering herself for comment. Don’t all rush at once…

Incidentally, whatever you think of the coverage, it doesn’t even appear that the front pages did breach the Editor’s Code. Media law consultant David Banks explains:

Another great Hacked Off success…

      It’s official, we really are all poorer under this Conservative government, wages are down. We work harder to make the economy get better and yet we get less.

          6% this year, 4% last year, good for you.

          After inflation is taken out of that you are are earning an extra 2% a year. An extra £400 per year, after tax.

            £400? I hope you’re not living anywhere near London and looking to buy a house. Let’s say you are looking for a modestly priced 3 bed at £300,000 in on one of the grottier suburbs. With house price inflation at 10%, that means you are another £2,600 short of being able to afford the property even with your pay rise.

            I can only guess you haven’t got a spouse and kids – in which case £30,000 might feel OK if you’re living at home with Mum.

            any economist worth their salt knows that when unemployement falls dramatically, these people move into low paid jobs bringing down avg pay.

            check the figures for 2009-10.

            you see big spikes in av pay even though the economy was hitting the skids.

            this is because companies were getting rid of the low productivity workers (white dees) therefore avg wages rise.

            By my back of the fag packet calculations, wage growth for those already in work is at least 50% higher than 0.6% per year.

        Why, why, why do some people think tha there is an inexhaustible money tree at the bottom of the garden?
        Simple economics tells that if you spend money you haven’t got for years, as happened under G Brwon, there will come a point when you have to stop spending and cut back. Where is it written that everyone must get richer every year and never get poorer years?
        By the way, I’m a 70 year old pensioner, living on a non-indexed linked pension, so didn’t get a rise last year of any other year since I retired, and will not get a rise in my pension (state pension excepted) until the day I die.

          If you check some of the video’s of armed convoys in Ukraine from earlier this year you will see white trucks.

          eg. 37s here:

          So – There are similar white trucks already in Ukraine, a bunch outside. Initially, stuff will be moved out or around under the cover within Ukraine of this aid. Some of the aid will be placed strategically for the following forces – that much is not needed…

          Until license plates, GPS trackers and such are put on the trucks due in (if clean) and drivers replaced with ICRC staff and maybe UN escort, nothing should move.

          It will do though as the border is not secure.

    Foreign Press Association 13th August 2014

    The FPA protests in the strongest terms the blatant, incessant, forceful and unorthodox methods employed by the Hamas authorities and their representatives against visiting international journalists in Gaza over the past month.

    The international media are not advocacy organisations and cannot be prevented from reporting by means of threats or pressure, thereby denying their readers and viewers an objective picture from the ground.

    In several cases, foreign reporters working in Gaza have been harassed, threatened or questioned over stories or information they have reported through their news media or by means of social media.

    We are also aware that Hamas is trying to put in place a “vetting” procedure that would, in effect, allow for the blacklisting of specific journalists. Such a procedure is vehemently opposed by the FPA.

        You should take a look at what really rich people – like Buffet and Slim – say about these matters. They know that a complete rip off system has developed and they make some good proposals for how to redress the balance e.g. high taxation and moving to a three day week.

    Did anyone else just see Channel 4 news? Are the left living on a different planet? They seem to be like a stuck record. Matt Frei kept going on and on and on about western military involvement as if it’s happening when both Cameron and Obama have said, no way.

    Cameron knows it won’t end well and Obama doesn’t want another fucked up Iraq as his legacy. Yet still both the BBC and Channel 4 news run this line that we are or should be bombing ISIS and actually reporting as if that is happening.

    Is it no wonder the public have no faith in the media these days? Even the lies about people being in favour of bombing, when the polls show that the public is split roughly half and half and when you consider the one sided poor reporting of the media they can’t be happy. Last year they tried to force us into going to war in Syria now it’s Iraq again.

    operation ore derived from an american investigation titled operation landslide and the yanks named it thus due to the fact the web company they were delving into was called landslide productions. said company provided payment services for internet porn providers and were fairly popular with about 6000 websites using them, and the bonus for users who signed up with their credit card via landslide was they got one unique login and password which allowed them access to every website that used landslide productions payment service. that is to say a user would have access to about 6000 different porn websites.

    one thing users did not have however was a list of all the sites that used landslide, but their login and password they had paid for gave them the potential to enter them all.

    when operation ore came into play uk plod quickly realized they had a big problem- namely that there were politicians, some at cabinet level, on the list that their american counterparts had provided. these politicians were investigated first and it was soon established that each of them had signed up for access to legitimate and legal adult material and that they had not signed up for nor viewed any of the 3 websites out of the 6000 on the landslide roster that provided indecent material featuring minors.

    the catch 22 to this issue was if it became public knowledge that a landslide membership gave people access to all websites that used landslide productions for payment services then the thousands of people the uk police still had left to investigate could use that knowledge to deny they viewed any of the 3 sites that featured children.

    so a da notice was slapped on the politician element to operation ore in order to ensure no other persons on the list could use this factor as an excuse. course it turned at that many people on the ore list had also signed up for legitimate and legal adult websites but as a means to cast aspersions on the uk government of the time the americans played it perfectly.

    ——-

    around about the time that landmark productions were operating a website surfaced called open hands. it was a place where adults with unhealthy interests in children could discuss their feelings in a place that advertised itself as safe, secure and non judgemental. the people behind the site were incredibly careful to ensure that users could not in any way share their contact details or links to any sort of illegal material. course the site was a honey trap and yielded a harvest of data of people whose internet connections could then be used for all sorts of internet activity that people behind open hands did not want linked to themselves. these people themselves were interested in children and some of them worked in fields such as intelligence, the police and the military. they had their own separate online haunt for sharing illegal material that was called “g” which was short for gaijin, a japanese word meaning stranger. it also alluded to the masonic nature of many of their members as it was the online equivalent to the more traditional private lodge libraries that shared photographs and videotapes- though not exclusively featuring children, however keeping it in the family is an alarmingly common feature of freemasonry and that really is meant in the literal incest sense.

    perhaps you have seen the short of video of scantily clad teenage minors dancing in a sexual manner within a masonic lodge already however the following photographs will be the first time you would have seen children being involved in a masonic ritual. they have been cropped and in one example censored and are the only ones of the set that are felt safe to post without getting slotted.

        The guidelines are clear and are there for a reason. So, on the Samaritans’ front this is all good.

        @suttonnick was attacked by a bunch of ‘leftards’ (twitter bios describing ‘anarcho-feminist communists’ etc.) last night which is what prompted him to release these details.

        That would have been the opening round in the hacked off campaign to try and politicize the death.

        The hacked off campaign is an active measure run by the K’remlin: An incredible claim perhaps, but very plausible, especially when its timing and intent is considered.

        Still, it is relatively easy to defuse:

        Hacked off will likely be looking for internet censorship after some of their cohorts decided to attack Z’elda online.

    Note their comments on Boroday integrating back into Russian life also, and X-check what I said a few threads back.

      Aleksandr Boroday is a Muscovite. That is probably all one needs to know. He no longer feels safe in Ukraine, even the Russian dominated part. Deniability problems loom. He is still breathing – for now. Remind me to check next week…

      One sees the emotive areas of South Ossetia and Transniestria mentioned in buffer state terms, as RF envisaged Donetsk and Lugansk. No EU and definitely no NATO.

      The words “…last week when we still had food in Moscow…” are interesting, as a side-issue.

      The article about Vladimir Pastukhov is also worth reading. Very hard-hitting.

      For balance, Interpretermag is self-described as Inopressa in reverse. I have no knowledge as to whether they are infiltrated. Seems not but, in this aspect of life, hardly anything is as it appears.

      Vote UKIP :-D

    who was that guy that the EU forced on Italy ? they were saying

    what happened to him ?
    does the EU have any idea what it is doing ?

    this well dressed elderly gentleman goes into one of those cabins on a train where there are 2 bench seats with racks above. In there is a beautiful young woman.
    time passes
    Old guy says ” do you know you are so beautiful I would give 500 euro to see your beautiful pussy ?”
    beautiful female says ” no you cannot see my beautiful pussy”
    time passes
    Old guy says;
    ” I would give 10 thousand euro to touch your beautiful pussy”.
    beautiful female thinks and says;
    for 10 thousand euro you may touch my beautiful pussy
    so the pair go to the toilet cabin and the beautiful female removes her knickers and presents her beautiful pussy for touching.
    the old guy looks at the beautiful pussy from all angles and the beautiful female says
    ” well are you not going to touch it ?”
    ” I cannot touch it ”
    ” why not ?”
    ” because i do not have any money”.

    Innocent children hit by a rocket one killed and one wounded, the BBC ignores this story for some strange reason. The BBC has reported every single death along with the usual Pallywood heart string pulling pictures but this time they have somehow forgotten to report on these latest casualties.

    The children were Egyptians hit by rocket fire from Gaza, could it be that the BBC is ignoring the story because they were not victims of the beastly IDF but victims of the brave hamas freedom fighters? If it contradicts the BBC narrative the story does not see the light of day, half the story half the time and only if it suits and fits.

    No its just broken down in your undemocratic socialist Utopia of France and the EU. To think that Ed and Ed quoted France as the way forward. This is what is coming our way in 2015 . Don’t be afraid just be scared absolutely shitless if those two fuckwits get in.

    Remember a vote for UKIP is as good as a vote for Labour. Don’t say you wern’t warned as the 2 Eds sweep into downing st the morning after the election.

      If you want to keep labour out, you need to start posting “vote UKIP” messages and get all your little tory bumsex chums to do the same. If every tory votes UKIP, you’ll not only keep labour out, but you’ll keep your country too. It’s a win-win.

    “Much of today’s coverage of the apparent suicide of Robin Williams is sensational and speculative. It is a clear breach of the Editors’ Code which states ‘when reporting suicide, care should be taken to avoid excessive detail about the method used’ and we call on Sir Alan Moses to condemn it.

    He has been in post long enough to be familiar with the guidance on reporting suicides, and he has a duty to remind editors of their responsibilities in this matter.” Joan Smith, executive director of Hacked Off

    So according to these guidelines then we can’t discuss the details of how President Kennedy, Ade Hylter, Jim Morrison or countless came to die…for fear of tipping some distressed person into suicide or offending relatives’ sensibilities?

    This is precisely what a free press is not about. A Free Press can only survive if you accept there will be negative consequences from people exercising free speech.
