Re: [Update] The News Corp scandal

Ok petition signed cannot believe such a ridiculous deal ever got approved. As well as getting this stopped i would like to know who the people were that brokered and approved this disgusting misuse of licence money.

Considering it is a song by The Jam, probably not...

Quote:
The Met said the arrests, part of Operation Elveden, were prompted by information given to police by News Corporation.
Hmmm!

Quote:
News Corporation and its management and standards committee (MSC) issued a statement following the arrests saying it had made a commitment last summer that unacceptable news gathering practices by individuals in the past would not be repeated.
"It commissioned the management and standards committee to undertake a review of all News International titles, regardless of cost, and to proactively co-operate with law enforcement and other authorities if potentially relevant information arose at those titles.
"As a result of that review, which is ongoing, the MSC provided information to the Elveden investigation which led to today's arrests."
Hmmm!

Quote:
An internal email from Tom Mockridge, the chief executive of Sun owner News International, on Saturday told staff the company was providing legal support to those being interviewed by police, while officers were conducting a limited search at The Sun's offices, supervised by the MSC's lawyers.
So I wonder who the scapegoats are..and how long they will get legal support for?

Plans for the launch of a new Sunday version of The Sun as a replacement for the News of the World have reportedly been put on hold following the arrest of four senior journalists connected to the paper.

Known as Project X, the Sun on Sunday has been widely rumoured to be in the works for some months, including recent reports suggesting that late April had been earmarked for its launch.

However, the Financial Times cites three senior insiders at publisher News International as saying that the project has been halted after raids by police on four senior journalists at the weekend.

Some of them can never be educated about that rubbish.

Re: [Update] The News Corp scandal

Yes, but if there was phone (and other forms) hacking at News International, they it is likely it would happen at Sky News as well, they sholud investigate TV News as well as Newspapers and Magazines

Remember Sky News shares resources with Fox News and they are both owned by the same company
