As I have stated previously I condemn any kind of hacking, except for illegal activities like the Mafia of course (with proper warrants), and am appalled it has been used to get information to publish personal information to the world. I have listened to our local leftwingnuts shout with joy that finally something that could possibly tarnish Murdoch's publishing empire and take away any credibility of FOX News and the Wall Street Journal among others. Well, since the left has no credibility or standing on these issues in my opinion, their shouting is meaningless. They of course supported Dan Rather's phony story on George W. Bush and there are many other stories showing the leftwing medias attempts to shut up conservatives.
HERE is the latest article on the practice of these tabloids. This is how they explained this explained in a nutshell.
"Now storm clouds are gathering over the Trinity Mirror group, the publisher of Britain's left-leaning Mirror tabloid, amid allegations that phone hacking was rife there as well."
Of course the term "left leaning" is used by the lamestream press in place of leftwing extremist that should be used. The press always calls anything on the right, extremist, so we on the right are used to the press' code words. Read the article and then watch to see if there is the same outrage against the lefty group as they are spewing against NEWS Corp. I bet you will see none. Oh, and the thing I am still pondering is it seems all this hacking was going on during the reign on the Labour Party, the lefty's, of Britain. It stopped when the right took power. Hmm.
