ISRAEL v Hamas. Who wins the media wars? Well, if this fakery is anything to go by, Hamas needs a new propaganda chief. File under: twins:
Action starts at 1 min 50s.
HOW do you report on the battle in Israel and Hamas in Gaza? The Israeli’s says Operation Pillars of Defence is in response to Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza for the past five years. The Israel’s assassinated Hamas’s top military commander, Ahmed Jabari. The war will be conduced as much online as it is on the ground. The Alqassam Brigades (the military wing of Hamas) tweeted: “Our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are (You Opened Hell Gates on Yourselves).” The Israelis release a video of Jabari’s death. Hamas invites favoured photographers to document their side’s suffering.
The IDF has a live blog.
WE told you Sir Cyril Smith was next. The former Liberal Democrat MP for Rochdale and former Labour Party councillor (oh, dread place), who died in 2010, was long rumoured to have been a paedophile. Labour MP Simon Danczuk, whose posterior now occupies the Rochdale constituency, told the House of Commons: “Young boys were humiliated, terrified and reduced to quivering wrecks by a 29st bully imposing himself on them.”
THEY came from nowhere… Meet the lower-league legends who graced the highest stage of all.
Wilfried Zaha’s call-up to the full England squad has raised eyebrows among those accustomed to the Premier League closed shop that has become the norm in recent times. But there are historical precedents for the Crystal Palace wide man’s sudden rise to fame – and not all the lower-league debutants are from the dim and distant past…
FREEMASONS! Channel 4 has alluded to the spectre of freemasonry at the paedo feeding frenzy. Is the BBC debacle linked to the Freemasons? The BBC, Tom Watson MP, Channel 4 News and Phillip Schofield have spoken about peadophiles operating in the ruling Conservative Party of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. None have offered a shred of proof nor taken their concerns to the police. The BBC and the Guardian went further, alluding to and naming to Lord McAlpine, linking the former Tory Party treasurer to child abused in North Wales care homes. Lord McAlpine is entirely innocent. The broadcasters’ whispers were based on the claims of one Steven Messham, who had been abused by others. Mr Messham has apologised, blaming the police for facilitating his error.
George Monbiot of The Guardian told his 55,000 Twitter followers: “I looked up Lord McAlpine on t’internet. It says the strangest things.”
The Speakers’ wife Sally Bercow told her 56,000 Twitter followers: “Why is Lord McAlpine trending? *innocent face*”
How does that help the victims?
LOOK up ” a bit rich” in the dictionary and you get this. As Brendan O’Neill says, “this is so good – the Sun berates the BBC and the Guardian for whipping up ‘paedo hysteria’”…
PAEDO-hunting is now entertainment for daytime telly. Phillip Schofield, host of ITV’S This Morning, attempted to ambush David Cameron by handing him a list of names of suspected paedophiles he’d found by looking online for a few minutes. No proof. No evidence. Just what Phil had read on the web. For good measure, Phil flashed the list he’d made up to those watching at home. Disgusting.
And odd. Not too long ago the liberal commentariat was bashing the News of The World. When the now dead paper’s Paul McMullan told the Leveson Inquiry “Privacy is for Paedos“, he was rounded on. Now the same people that professed to hate such tabloid tactics are using them.
This has been coming. Schofield is just the latest idiot to jump abord the paedo-hunting bandwagon.
SOMETIMES, television is so bewildering that you can’t possibly believe that it is comprised of real human beings. Take for example, this morning, when Phillip Schofield went feral and handed our Prime Minister, David Cameron, a piece of paper with a list of Tory MPs who the presenter believes are paedophiles.
Let us look at that again. Gordon The Gopher’s best friend went online, found a load of names who have been accused of raping children, presumably with little to no actual evidence, and wrote them down on a bit of paper and handed them to the man who has an entire country to run, and expected an answer.
WRITING in defence of football’s designated position as a sport riddled with racism and in need to state control, lest the white working class fans race riot, Martin Samuels uses his Daily Mail column to compare the national sport to Strictly Come Dancing.
Samuels notices that Colin Salmon has been voted off BBC pro-celebrity dance show Strictly Come Dancing. Colin Salmon is black. He was voted off in a public vote. Samuels writes:
The past two weeks, Salmon has been inexplicably endangered by the public poll. On Sunday, his luck ran out. He performed nervously in the dance-off and was eliminated. Aside from Louis Smith, the Olympic gymnast, who is mixed race, Strictly is now all white on the night.
WELL, Barack Obama won. Canada can reopen her borders. Mitt Romney can walk freely in the knowledge that no crazy is going to assassinate him or compare him to Hitler. For those bored with the whole shebang, Frank J. Fleming
@ tweets: “My dream is to one day vote for president and then never hear about the guy again until the next election.” And on the internet, the mood is mixed:
RESIGNATIONS – memorable ones. And on that bombshell…
THE best and funniest photos of the US 2012 Presidential election. Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?
