Phoney Fleet Street Dissemblers Yanking On Mr Slippery’s Strings

with one comment

The lying, cheating, self-serving, abusive charlatans that call themselves ‘Fleet Street’ editors are in raging apoplexy about the suggestion that they might be held to account.

Spineless, Mr ‘Slippery’ Cameron has flip flopped as usual.  Just a little bit of pressure applied in the right place and he’d pimp his grandmother if it seemed expedient.

There’s Nothing “Bonkers” About The Leveson Report Mr Cameron But As For You…

Now comes the news that the ‘Butcher’, the repugnant, mendacious Paul Dacre of the Daily Mail is to chair a meeting of editors to consider their response to the report. Anything that Dacre touches turns to the dark side.  I don’t know why he earned his nickname but it well expresses what he does to the truth.

Butcher Of The Truth

I fervently hope that the public just won’t stand for this.  Fleet Street’s desperate last stand is to claim that an independent regulator underpinned by statute is a slippery slope or crossing the Rubicon and will inevitably lead to state interference in the press.

Absolute hogwash!  This is the press using their unrivalled expertise to deceive, mislead and distort the truth.  Why the hell should these amoral, exploitative, habitually dishonest barons be above the law?

In fact, an independent regulator backed by statute is the best possible way to guarantee a ‘freedom of the press’ that is in the interests of us all.  The only freedom that Dacre and his cronies want is to be able to continue their despicable, self-serving manipulation of facts, news and people’s lives for their own ends.  At all costs, the nightmare scenario of more ‘self-regulation’ must be resisted.

Hacked Off, the campaign for a free and accountable press, is running a petition calling for the Leveson report to be fully implemented.

PLEASE SIGN IT NOW!
