Must Be A Big Story Under The Rock

If this story was simply about hacking phones to get news stories, it would not have been worth their time to kill this guy.

There must be a lot more to this whole tangled web of corruption and it looks like it involves more than just the police taking bribes to pass information along.

The funny thing is that whenever a story like this emerges, people are still talking about "crazy conspiracies." As if to suggest that anything that is not absolutely public, transparent and conceded out loud is simply unthinkable. Even after a story like this begins to surface. The press had carte blanche to eavesdrop on citizens with the help of the government as long as they shared any information. Again, governments working with the lowest rungs of the criminal underworld to persecute their own citizens in a squeeze play in the middle.

I'll venture a guess this is the reason Murdoch is shutting down his entire operation ahead of any legal action. He doesn't want people following this thread of inquiry down the rabbit hole. I'm guessing it leads straight back to the source of all evil in the world.

Every once in a while the lid of the septic tank is kicked open a crack to illuminate what The Chosen People are up to.

But then it's put back in place and all is forgotten.

Now what are Charlie Sheen and J Lo up to?

Is it just me, or does the media's lack of willingness to entertain or discuss foul play leave a stench in your nostrils?

Lets see, man embarrasses Murdoch, the Met and the Prime Minister, then turns up dead. Nothing to see here. Move along!

I'm willing to bet it would be pretty easy to make a murder look like a self inflicted overdose on alcohol.

I like the last comment on the linked page "why would you commit suicide if you though someone was going to kill you"

The press is supposed to report, not speculate. Speculation belongs to the editorial page.

Until the cause of death and autopsy results are released, the press is limited to reporting the facts. The facts are that the man is dead and the police do not think foul play was involved.

You'll be interested in this Canadian research on our Neanderthal roots.

“In Western Europe there’s definitely archaeological evidence for interaction,” she added. Beads, bone tools and jewelry similar to that of Homo sapiens of the same period have been found at Neanderthal sites in Spain, for example. It does not appear that Neanderthals made these kinds of implements before Homo sapiens arrived on the continent, she said.

In other words they aped home sapiens. Sapiens tools, too, were more complex. And they clearly couldn't compete with sapiens, either. Hence, their extinction as a race.
