EXTRACT – The war of words between the US and Russia has been fueled, if not orchestrated by media that has gone beyond “slanting” or even censoring the news. Newspapers, in this case the UK Daily Mail, are full-fledged combatants.
I worked as an IT Network Analyst at Associated Newspapers in the late 1990’s until 2000. I had round the clock access to everywhere and all IT systems, even Lord Rothermere’s office, in it you will find Lord Nelsons writing desk and chair from HMS Victory, I once sate there and penned “England Expects … ” I did not partake in the DMGT pension scheme, I quit for an easier life away from London.
No doubt Daily Mail editors are being pressured to write the pro-war line just as they were in the past. Rothermere has had several meetings with Cameron.
.. At the time the BBC was bombed supposedly by the Real IRA and not long after the very large docklands bomb went off, I narrowly escaped that one.
Paul Dacre the Editor of the Mail had recieved now seemingly airbrushed threats from the RIRA, as a result the “threat” HQ building Derry Street Kensington had been provided with plain clothes serving military guards some armed. I recognised one of the chaps as special forces ( I used to work as a contractor on their comms ). During one discussion we agreed that it was not possible to defend the building against a bomb attack and that the thing was just for show leading to the question why do it ? Reassurance or a reinforcing a veiled threat ?
In the same time frame I purchased telephone recording equipment to be used by Lord Rothermere and a small number of other senior ranks to record incoming calls, all very hush hush.
I now wonder if the whole threat scenario might have been contrived to bias the editorial team.

Daily Mail & General Trust has sold half of DMG Radio Australia, its Australian radio business, to Illyria, Lachlan Murdoch’s private investment vehicle, for about £63m.
Mr Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp, was once seen as the heir to his father’s empire. However, in 2005 he quit as News Corp’s deputy chief operating officer unexpectedly and moved back to Sydney. He will become chairman of the new joint venture.
