Army hero's shock as he is used in.. ARMA!

Hi all

First up I have found no reference to the person named by the News papers in BIS's game. So unless this reporter can come up with proof the reporter is up S**t Creek without a paddle, as are the news paper and its website providers.

Actually BIS can sue and also report the reporter to the Police under the "Malicious Communications Act" and have him arrested which is FREE!

As per this case:

And the MOD and the person named can also sue the Newspaper, which should be good for a bit of extra pension for the Hero.

I wonder who the source was, a rival firm perhaps? If so BIS and the MOD can also probably pursue a case for interfering in a contractual relationship.

Papers such as the Mirror and The Sun will have a "Lawsuit fund" in place because they know they are gonna end up in court over the stuff they write now and then. In fact, quite often the decision to publish a story will take into account how much in legal fees (balanced against extra sales) a story will cost them.

Normally with any form of mis-reporting (such as this), it's normally a published correction (not always an apology though) rather than anyone getting arrested or going to jail over it.

My father in law reads nothing but the Mirror and I can testify that he is utterly ignorant and the biggest moron I know. The stories run by the Mirror are so full of holes you couldn't use the rag for toilet paper.

My favourite recent story on their website was about UK Apaches being sent to Libya armed with 2000lb Paveway III bunker busting bombs. Anyone seen an Apache with a 2000lb bomb on it recently? Fly well did it?

See the name of the journalist? Ruth Sherlock (no shit?)

Same nonsense from Russia Today:

They are very, very left wing, anti war etc etc and published fake photos during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The photos showed British troops mistreating prisoners but were found to have been filmed in the UK using old army surplus equipment, vehicles and plastic guns. The editor at the time - Piers Morgan was dismissed from his job.

He published the photos without checking their credibility and with no thought of the harm it could do. It's amazing how Pierce Moron has since resurfaced. No dirt seems to stick to these people. Never mind - I'm here to sling it.

RussiaToday essentially takes the stupidest shit it can find in Western media and then repackages it as authentic anti-establishment wisdom. Plus some plugs for United Russia.

Hi all

RussiaToday seems to the Russian equivalent of Fox News or the Daily Mail.

There is probably a Chinese equivalent.

The difference is that RussiaToday is fully aware of the existence of Fox News and its strategy. RussiaToday will take stories and conspiracy theories from Western fringe media and present it as the truth that is known by real Americans who disbelieve official propaganda. They teach the controversy with no regard for responsible reporting and no attempt to hide their bias. It seems like the channel is aimed at foreign viewers of shitty news, trying to make their governments look bad by offering even shittier news.

Hi all

The case that the Mirror does not check its facts is somewhat small beer; when compared to the Attitude of the Murdoch owned media in this country, particularly with regard to the Milly Dowler murder hacking case and now with the Police also investigating them with regard to the Soham Murders.

Hi all

Just a pointer as to why Brendan Behan' famous quote:

may now need the caveat unless you are the conventional Media:

This could well be the first case of a media giant taken down by the people. Seems that the Wikileak method that spawned the Arab Spring has now turned its spotlight on the one group that society considers more corrupt than politicians.

Hi all

On the corruption of the UK press.

This debate in particular what Tom Watson MP (Tom Watson (Lab, West Bromwich East)) had to say is very relevant.

http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/Player.aspx?meetingId=8700

The degree to which members of the police force were corrupted is also being questioned as are News International's influence on members of parliament.

The lack of professionalism within the media here in the UK is clearly an endemic problem.

The phone hacking appears to involve familiy of victims of 9/11, the Soham Murders, the McCann family. It also includes accusations of interfering with justice and attempts by the staff of News International to destroy evidense.
