Matt Tapp may be "...close to being in control of the media output of every police force in England."
Former States of Jersey Chief Police Officer, Graham Power, said this about Matt Tapp.
"Mr Tapp went on to suggest that we should stage a high profile media conference in which the force should effectively denounce some aspects of the
early enquiry. I saw this as a bad idea. A gradual and carefully managed process of expectation management had been taking place for months and it was

sensationalist media interest, create controversy and divisions within the Island, and confuse and demoralise victims and witnesses. I believe that
subsequent events have shown that I was correct in those beliefs." ricosorda.blogspot.co.uk...

What better way to control the journalists of the future than to indoctrinate them early? Dr David Clarke knows all about that. Spooks teach
journalism. That's why the mainstream media is so utterly useless.
