News group with huge political clout across three continents described as ‘no threat to objective reporting’
Behaviour of Fox News and Republican leaders in US completely ignored
‘Culture’ Secretary undeterred by gathering Met Police investigation of Newscorp illegality
Evidence of PM-lobbying by suspected hackers brushed aside
A MISTAKE THE PRIME MINISTER WILL REGRET FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE
Davido Cammersconi…..’I cleara da way fora my Capio Ruperto’
In an expected but nevertheless brazen decision to turn two blind eyes to growing evidence of serious and endemic Newscorp illegality, Media & Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt today confirmed his approval of the takeover plans of the Murdoch dynasty for BSkyB television.
Having inexplicably given the Murdoch-owned Newscorp bidders ‘more time’ to come up with a feeble accountancy scam, they have duly obliged and – via a deckchair-rearranging bit of legal bollocks – been given the green light to milk the BSkyB cash-cow without serious MMC referral.
Now is not the time to go into endlessly repeated evidential details. The Slog will take its time to absorb the detail of the deal, and then regroup. Suffice to say that on this, Day 50 of the emergence of solid cover-up evidence against the Met Police and Newscorp’s News of the World title, the Cameron Coalition has plumbed a new low in grubby favouritism.
Bankers can do what they want. Brussels can do what it wants. And now media baron paymasters can do what they want.
The fight continues. And remember this well: I was in the US when, despite endless evidence of Republican illegality presented to the American public by the Washington Post, Nixon won almost every State in his 1972 Re-election campaign. But in the end, the trail of lies, spin, excuses, surreal defences and constitutional corruption led back to the Oval Office.
The same will happen here.
AS ALWAYS WHEN I MAKE SUCH RARE APPEALS, I AM NOT AFTER ANY ACCREDITATION WHEN I ASK YOU TO LINK, TWEET, TEXT, CALL, EMAIL AND OTHERWISE GIVE LIFE TO OUR DEFIANCE BY GETTING THIS POST ONTO THE SCREENS OF AS MANY REAL LOVERS OF PLURALITY AS POSSIBLE.
JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL.
