But then Murdoch is pissed off.... he lost a paper, got humiliated.
You really, really didn’t want to get me started on Murdoch. The mere mention of his name is a sure fire means to induce in me a kniption fit.
Murdoch was not humiliated, he was caught. For him to have been humiliated is to suggest that the man has any morals at all.

There is some kind of "war" going on... things are being leaked.
Yes, I agree that there is a war going on, but I disagree strongly that the Sun has anything of substance to ‘leak’, if it did, it would have
profited by that information long before this story broke. Go back to the coverage from the Sun of Saville’s death. They could not have crawled
any further up the guy’s bottom. Had they had any information at all, to the contrary, of what a wonderful man he was, who did such a lot of great
work for charity, they would have inserted those allegation in there then. They did not. They have nothing.
Go back and read the article that you linked to...the whole piece is a dig at the Guardian. The Yorkshire Ripper reads the Guardian, therefore the
Guardian is the paper of choice for the sick and perverted. It is remedial level stuff, aimed at the lowest common denominator, those completely
bereft of independent thought. And, it works for them.
Murdoch has consistently shown that he can get away with printing lies, he is not brought to book for it. His minions may get their wrists slapped,
but Murdoch is able to hide behind his bank roll and walk away unscathed. He is, to his own mind definitely, untouchable, and perhaps literally. Go
down Anfield one Saturday with a copy of the Sun tucked under your arm and see just how quickly you can get the # kicked out of you. We should ALL
follow Liverpool’s example, and see Murdoch for the dirty, lying bastard that he is. The victims of Hillsborough know, and they also know that
Murdoch and his minions never, ever retract their lies, let alone apologise for all the hurt and damage that those lies cause. He is, was and until
he is stopped, be lower than the low, and I for one wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire.

Murdoch was embarrassed publicly in the UK and was "scrutinised" in the Leveson Inquiry.
In all the time Murdoch's papers were hacking phones, I'm pretty sure Murdoch and the Journo's learned a thing or two... A thing or two that they now
have over certain people.
Murdoch’s monkeys did not tap the phones of people in the name of ‘truth’, they did it in the name of sensationalism. What truth did they
expect to obtain from the private conversations of the parents of murdered little girls? Sara Payne’s family, Millie Dowler’s?
The guy from whom these people bought that information from, was willing to plant coc aine on an innocent woman, so that her ex-husband could
gain custody of their child. What sort of people are these? Do you really want to know any truth that these people can supply? I don’t. I want
none of it.
Murdoch, thought, perhaps rightly so, that he could buy the government of this country. He said as much openly, and that irked a lot of people. He
has shown himself to have no respect for due process, or for the right to privacy of people right across the social strata. I have little time for
the Daily Mail, and for it’s owner Lord Rothmere, but Rothmere is one of those who would like to take down Murdoch. The trade unions in this
country too, would like to see Murdoch taken down. He smashed the printers union, and his support of Thatcher’s government during the miner’s
strike helped set in motion not only the closure of the mines, but also the privatisation of this country’s utilities and natural resources. He was
integral to that whole process, and helped generate the popular support and disseminate Thatcherite propaganda that enabled that debacle to take
place. We will be picking up the pieces of that for many, many years to come.
Murdoch’s motivation therefore, in pretending to have inside information as to who protected Saville is manifold. It deflects attention away from
his own slanderous and libellous, not to mention downright, criminal activities, and, in the minds of the mindless masses, it aims that aggression at
his competitors, like the BBC and the Guardian. Those that actually do possess some ethics of old school journalism.
The BBC clearly #ed up. Saville clearly abused his power and position to have sex with girls, many of whom were underage, and otherwise vulnerable.
But, it seems to me, that it is being blown out of all proportion. Whether that is to besmirch the name of the BBC, and by default, the government
that would not allow itself to be bought and bullied by Murdoch’s power and influence, or whether that is to deflect our attention away from more
pressing news. I don’t know. What I do know, is that Murdoch and his arse-wipe of a rag, wouldn’t know the truth it came and slapped them in the
I am much, much more concerned about the false hope that is being given to those who suffered abuse within the care system, and for those who are
still waiting for answers. Such as those who were victimised at Bryn Estyn. How much more can these men take? There have already been 12-13
suicides as a consequence of that abuse, and according to the clip of the radio interview, those men who have so far survived, have still not received
the counselling that they were promised. I think that the real story lies not with Saville and his cronies but with what happened to those boys, and
countless others who were failed by the care system. They, unlike the vast majority of Saville’s victims, were the responsibility of the
government, and they deserve a reinvestigation and a thorough inquiry as to why the abuse that occurred outside of the home was not deemed to be ‘in
the public interest’. I am the public and I for one am bloody interested.
