In my opinion it beggars belief that people can try to justify this .Peoples privacy is getting eroded enough as it is without the media taking it upon themselves to hack phones emails and god knows what else ,and you can bet your bottom dollar that this is not the first time ,just the first time they got caught .Even more worrying is this bit ,note the word suspected .How many other people have been hacked on the strength of suspicion only
totally agree Tom Watson just shows the atitude todays many MP's. The MP's got way too cosy with media now so clouded with there judgement. You wonder how many they investigated this way. You wonder if its more widespread we often seen stories all over place or news snippets you think how was it obtained at times.

I can only think one way this was done. there was beeb program on confidence tricksters showing how you could fall for all sorts including scimming/hacking. One if he was wifi conection they could used hacking software sit outside in van literally what what they did on the web.

If you accusing them of having committed illegal activity before then it's up to you to prove that, not for me to prove otherwise.

It can be excused in the public interest if there is a genuine public interest. Letting the authorities alone decided what is in the public's interest is a dangerous state of affairs in which they will be well protected against charges of corruption, amongst other things.

Again. The Telegraph would never have broken the expenses scandal had they not paid for the information.

Re: [Update] The News Corp scandal

Interesting piece from the Sky news editor John Ryley .He's basically trying to justify hacking emails by saying everyone else is doing it so why shouldn't we .

Quote:
A high-profile British lawyer who has been closely involved in pursuing the hacking scandal at Rupert Murdoch’s British tabloids said on Thursday that he planned for the first time to sue on behalf of alleged victims in the United States, the center of Mr. Murdoch’s global media empire.
This could force the US to actually take a closer look at Murdoch and his empire in the US.

Re: [Update] The News Corp scandal

Squeaky bum time for some journalists, private detectives and a cop.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-17753490

Quote:
Four files relating to alleged offences committed by journalists have been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service to consider if charges can be brought.

The cases concern allegations of misconduct in a public office, perverting the course of justice, witness intimidation and harassment.

Interception of communications, thought to be phone hacking, is also included.

Four journalists, one police officer and six other people are allegedly involved.

The Sun's royal editor has been arrested by detectives investigating alleged illegal payments to police and public officials, the BBC has learned.
Duncan Larcombe, 36, was held following a raid on his home in Kent on Thursday.
Quote:
In a statement, Scotland Yard said: "Today's operation is the result of information provided to police by News Corporation's management standards committee.
"It relates to suspected payments to a public official and is not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that has been obtained legitimately."
I see the 'stab our former workers in the back as a means of hopefully avoiding any further investigation of the higher echelons' continues.

Heads up.Next week at the Leveson Inquiry James Murdoch is due to appear on Tues 24 all day. Rupert Murdoch is to be seen on Wed 25th and Thurs 26th.

I wondered why there was a warning on the site that there would not be a lot of seating available for anyone wanting to attend that week.

Re: [Update] The News Corp scandal

Phone hacking: News International faces nearly 50 new claims.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012...ational-claims

Quote:
The number of new civil claims for damages over alleged News of the World phone hacking faced by Rupert Murdoch's News International has reached nearly 50, including Sir John Major's former daughter-in-law Emma Noble, the high court has heard.


Others seeking damages for alleged invasion of privacy from News Group Newspapers, the News International subsidiary that published the now-closed Sunday tabloid, include former Conservative cabinet minister and chief whip Lord Blencathra and former Fire Brigades' Union general secretary Andy Gilchrist.


At a case management conference at the high court in London on Friday, Hugh Tomlinson, QC, representing victims of alleged phone hacking, told Mr Justice Vos that he had 44 new cases filed while two others had submitted their claims via another legal representative.


It is expected that up to 200 new claims will be filed over the coming months, Vos told the court in a previous hearing

Quote:
The Leveson Inquiry is to hear evidence this week from several newspaper owners and news bosses, including Rupert Murdoch and his son, James.
The inquiry into press standards is now focusing on the relationship between newspapers and politicians.
On Monday, Aidan Barclay, the chairman of Telegraph Media Group, and Evgeny Lebdev, owner of the Independent and London Evening Standard, are to appear.
Now I wonder if we are to get the feeble minded geriatric that we saw at the select committee or complete unctuousness of other performances to the press.
