Murdoch's Minions

Today, the Scum calls those MPs who opposed Blair on the 90 day proposals "Traitors". They list (and have photos of) the winners, "Osama Bin Laden, Al Zarqawi, David Davis, Clare Short...", and the losers, the victims of the Londom bombings and their relatives. Truly repugnant behaviour. How well does Mr Kavanagh sleep at night? He writes that "the limit was slashed to 28 days" which is quite clearly a lie. Does he feel any guilt about such a bold misrepresentation on the facts? I suspect his salary dulls the faint objections of his ever diminishing conscience.

That's not all though. (Via)

The Scum

That was Tuesday's front page. John Tulloch, the man in this photo, is a Professor in media studies. He says:
This is using my image to push through draconian and utterly unnecessary terrorism legislation. Its incredibly ironic that the Sun's rhetoric is as the voice of the people yet they don't actually ask the people involved, the victims, what they think. If you want to use my image, the words coming out of my mouth would be, 'Not in my name, Tony'. I haven't read anything or seen anything in the past few months to convince me these laws are necessary.
So they didn't even ask the person in the photo whether he agreed with the Blair/Murdoch line. He didn't.

This gives us one of the clearest signs ever as to how the Scum operates. They have a complete and utter disregard for accurate reporting of the facts. They are, instead, mostly concerned with promoting the political aganda of their owner, Rupert "I pay no UK taxes" Murdoch. The strings are starting to show Mr Murdoch, it really is about time you fucked right off.

Who's the traitor? (via again)

I've done a little more Technorati mood sampling. There are one or two developments on the original BBC story. There are now a small number of posts expressing the opinion that yesterday's vote was a victory for terrorism. Strangely, they seem to be pretty much exclusively from US bloggers. Overall, it's still overwhelming support for the decision of the House. Where are all the outraged Brit bloggers?

It could be the dislike of the BBC thing. I thought I'd check links to the Scum's Terror Bill Defeat story. At the time of writing there's not a single link in support of the Scum. Remarkable.
