Murdoch Owned Paper Hacks Into Dead Girls Phone

    Just in case you miss this in America, maybe the New York Times or Fox don't want to run with it - they are both Murdoch owned I think?

    In the UK, journalists and a phone hacker used by one at least of Murdochs rags have been caught hacking into various dead kids phones, and their parents.  This is a huge story over here.

    Already advertisers are pulling out of News Media but the story goes a lot lot deeper than the Dirty Digger and his dirty newspapers. 

    You see the police did a little investigation a while back and didn't find a lot.  Even though evidence was all written down in a journo's notebook.

    And our politicans didn't want to hold an enquiry.

    Why?  Because the police and the politicians are in awe of Murdoch - he has the power through his media to decide elections.

    While it was tacky celebrities and the Royals being hacked no one really cared much but now...

    Let me say again.  A girl is kidnapped.  While the police are looking for her the Murdoch owned paper uses information gained by hacking into her phone, AND the guy doing it DELETED messages to make room for more which could have made them think the girl was still alive.

    Murdoch, our police and our politicians are in this up to their grubby necks.  Meanwhile the Great British Public, as happens every now and again, is outraged.

    I just thought you ought to know.  If you check the story in the British Media you might never want to read Murdochs output again.  The power of the boycott.

    Oh edit:  Not just one dead girl.  Holly and Jessica who were killed by a paedophile - their parents were hacked.  Madelaine - kidnapped, missing while on holiday, still missing - parents hacked.  And so on.

    "...allegedly..." By John's definition this story is already a lie.

    They ought to be in prison for a while... all the way up the line.

      All the way up the line would be nice.  There will be a lot of powerful people having a serious chat tonight.  "Where can we stop it?"

        I am ashamed to say Murdoch used to live 35 klms from my home in Melbourne, and made a heap of money here and in England before he became an American citizen.

        He is one Australian we were better off without. He owns half the bloody planet! Time/warner/AOL, Fox, huge communications infrastructure
        in India and more.

        Not many Australians have the "never enough" illness of this sick little puppy! smile

    Stuff like this is what gives journalists a bad name.

    I remember FOX reporters calling pakistan -'pornistan' for accessing beastiality/incest content from united states servers. (Irony ?) Murdoch inc recruits bunch of retard religious and conservative folks. No wonder people with such inclination support FOX networks.

      We have a lot of channels on TV in Australia these days, but I only ever watch FOX if I want to see what the latest loony headline is for my amusement. lol

      Fox seem to specialise in lunatics like Beck.

        I think the joke is that to have bestiality and incest the non-human animal would need to be a relative....

        As it is I am just glad someone did prison time for this.  By hacking the phone and deleting messages they left the poor family with the idea their child might still be alive, and tampered with evidence. 

        Which is a total scumbag move.

    By the way, this is NOT a political comment, it is about morality.

    In the UK Murdoch supports the Winners - right or left wing.  They all do his bidding anyway, so it makes no difference.

    At present he is taking ownership of an independent (ish) satellite broadcaster giving him a monopoly.  Waved through by our coalition government of course, the minister who objected... was sacked.

    The deputy editor of the dead girl paper hacking was recently our Prime Ministers spokesman or something.  And the editor at the time of the hacking is a close personal friend of our Prime Minister.

    Left OR Right wing remember - our UK politics is crooked all the way through.  And it's owned by Murdoch.

    But this story, for me, is about the morality of hacking into a dead girls phone or that of her parents.  Every now and then a story breaks and it takes us to a new level of filth and sleaze.

    Maybe, the people will stop buying his stuff, the advertisers will leave, and we'll find out just how heavily mortgaged the man is.  Empires don't last for ever.

      It would be good to see how much he owes at this time. My bet is he would be heavily leveraged as usual.

      "The most common use of the slash is to replace the hyphen or en dash to make a clear, strong joint between words or phrases, such as "the Hemingway/Faulkner generation"."

        Thanks for the enlightenment. I connected porn related keywords using "slash". Instead of copy pasting stuff from google, try to correct my error. This will save time for both of us. If you don't wish to correct it, ignoring my reply is much better option. If that is also too hard to do then try to stretch this reply into some another argument. I have a lot of time to waste on HP forum right now.

          A dude made a joke about your comment. You seemed to miss the joke.  So I tried to explain it. There isn't even an argument to be had here. Chill.

    He owns the Wall Street Journal in the US, not the New York Times. smile

      He also bought the Cape Cod Times, which was a puzzlement.....
      Unless it's because Koch has a home here, and the CCTimes is very anti-Wind Farm?

      He's a dirty player, as is Koch, imo.

    Well the campaigns are gathering pace.

    Social networking v. corrupt publishing empires. 

    My efforts are here.  You don't have to read, I don't care much.  Just sometimes you need to vent, and HP didn't seem the place for it.
