The PCC [Jul. 12th, 2011|12:10 pm]
Tony Grist
Talk about reforming the Press Complaints Commission is beside the point. The things that News International journalists have done aren't simply breaches of journalistic ethics, but crimes- and as such the business of the police.  It's the police- and their political masters- who have failed to do their job. The scandal at the News of the World isn't primarily about journalism, its about the corruption and/or cowardice of our law makers and law enforcers.

As the FCO told me "the primacy of ACPO" (over Parliament). These ****ers don't even bother to hide it now!

Perhaps we're in the process of seeing a little adjustment....

The only adjustment I want is a Red flag over Westminster & Whitehall. Blog to follow in 20 mins.

Yes please. How about casting Rupert's while you're about it?

Ugh. I despise most journalists. I believe we've each already noted how little objective reporting is done. Reading a mainstream newspaper these days is like getting rolled by a hooker. erm....or so I conjecture.

It is beyond me how people like Brooks can do the work they do and not hate themselves profoundly.

That's why she's rich and you and I are not.

Totally agree. It's pernicious, seedy and disgusting. Murdoch and co should be dragged to the dock and he key thrown away.

Rupert Murdoch is probably beyond the`reach of the law (I doubt if there's any trail- paper or electronic- that leads to him) but I think his son James has some questions to answer.
