Torquay Police Bypass Journalists And Publish Direct On Local Newspaper Website
AFTER the hacking scandal broke, there were many stories about cosy the police, media and politicians had become. It looks like sensitive information is now mere merchandise. Where are the checks and balances? Who is watching whom?
Who at the Torquay Herald Express thought it a good idea for the local police to have access to the paper’s website?
Torquay police tweeted:
An Historic moment for the team. We have just published our own story directly to @TQHeraldExpress website with a picture. Amazing.
At last the police have stopped pretending to get compliant hacks to do their dirty work. Now they just publish whatever they like straight in the newspapers.
