The definitive book on the How the PDF #10003 phone hacking scandal from the journalist who broke the biggest story of corruption since WatergateAt first it seemed like a small story A royal correspondent for the News of the World was caught listening to the voice mail messages of staff at Buckingham Palace He and a private investigator went to prison for three months But Nick Davies a journalist at The Guardian knew it didn’t add up A source at the News of the World told him that not only Hack Attack PDF was hacking routine but live phone. This is a book about power Some investigative journalism is involved but as Davies points out early in piece his inuiries were not a Watergate style mystery chase Clear evidence indicating that sustained phone hacking had taken place at the News of the World and other publications was there in the public record following it up wasn't a matter of hunting down unlisted numbers and working dead drops with mystery sources but one of forcing the Metropolitan Police to release the mountain of incriminating evidence they had seized and withheld from victims and the public at large While investigative reporting got the ball rolling the crucial tool was the court system Much of this book is the story of Davies' efforts to inform recruit and collaborate with other journalists lawyers and hacking victims to pursue News Limited in court in the process forcing Scotland Yard and the Crown Prosecution Service to reveal the hard evidence needed to break down the official fiction that hacking had been limited to a rogue reporter This effort was crucial for while it was clear to Davies that the collapse of the rogue reporter defence was a matter of time the breakthrough that momentarily severed the political class’s deference to Murdoch the Milly Dowler revelations – came just in time to scupper News Limited’s bid for the remaining stake in BSkyB and with it complete dominance of UK satellite television and untold richesview spoilerInterestingly this campaign was substantially assisted by Max Moseley the former F1 boss a hacking victim and crucially an old man with nothing to lose and large trust fund to pour into the litigation efforts of those who had suffered similarly at News Limited’s hands hide spoiler

the way the organisation deliberately attacked individuals and their families if an individual dared to protest their behaviour; how News International created a climate in which neither police regulators nor politicians dared tackle their corruption because the conseuences would be massive assaults and vilification by a news organisation that owned a vast percentage of news coverage online on paper and on TV in the UK and internationally It’s about how that organisation explicitly and knowingly lied over the course of a decade to the police to the regulator to the courts to all the democratically elected representatives of the British peopleHere are a few numbers In the court trials that took place over the last few years the representatives of our democracy the Crown Prosecution Service were able to muster £17 million one full time solicitor and one administrative assistant to make the case News International spent £30 40 million aggressively defending its representatives and deployed an army of legal representatives and support staff Why does it matter It’s an example of what happens when greater powers are invested in private corporations than in our public services The corporation is able to devastate any attempt to make them take responsibility for the harm they’ve done to the public good The government that the people have elected to represent as best as possible their collective interests and to protect them from harm is no longer able to wield true power in the face of the buying power possessed by the corporations There is nothing defending the lives and well being of the public; we are all at riskIt goes deeper News International is an organisation that recognises that governments are the only bodies able to exercise any control over their behaviour Therefore News International deliberately advocates the shrinking of governments the reduction of their revenue the weakening of their regulatory powers the most stringent controls over their spending News International does so in order to ensure that it possesses a competitive advantage over the only organisation able to exercise any restraint upon their corruption It attacks tax levels attacks public service in general in order to reduce the expertise and skills available to the judiciary to the police force to the tax authorities to all levels of our political establishment making it less likely wrong doing will be detected prevented or punishedThe hacking scandal was not a case of a few celebrities getting their fingers burned Of the hackers exposed after all those years one had hacked a minimum of 5500 people another had hacked a further 1600 Those people included the family and friends of a couple who’s child was abducted It included the family and friends of a murdered school girl – the newspaper’s representatives went further and didn’t hand over evidence that at the time they believed indicated where the girl was they wanted to claim credit themselves and to sell papers so didn’t give it to the police News International went after the family and friends of two girls murdered in the town of Soham In other words if you your family your parents your children your friends – anyone you know – gets caught up in a tragedy all their conversations and information medical records police records bank records employment records diaries etc and yours too would immediately have become something News International stole and used to make profit for their companyNews International destroyed 210 million emails during the course of the investigations The leaders within the police service who led the early investigations were being wined and dined by and were friends with the people they were meant to investigate – the police deliberately misled parliament the public the courts and the inuiries The Press Complaints Commission which was meant to ensure that newspapers respected the laws of this country saw its role as being to deflect criticism away from its richest benefactors and was too scared to speak out against them because it would mean News International the Sun the Times the News of the World Sky News would send teams out to attack and slur them The governments both Labour and Conservative were too busy trying to ensure good coverage and to avoid attempts to undermine them with sleaze stories critical coverage and attacks that they were unwilling to speak out and decided instead to give jobs to people who had broken the law to attend their parties call them friends privilege their views News International was allowed to tell your government and my government what their policies should be Surely that’s meant to be the right of the peopleAt root in amidst the sheer scale of it all there’s a simpler story of bullies and damaged people who gain satisfaction from the exercise of power over ‘the little people'; it’s a tale of people who grew up as we all did on the bible tales of doing unto others as you would have done unto yourselfThen abandoned that in favour of personal profit over any moral consideration It’s an amazing book Well written lengthy but with so many moments of stunning revelation that you’ll barely be able to close your mouth at times for sheer fury I found myself punching the air through sheer frustration as the suit wearing white collar criminals slipped through the net while setting themselves up as judge and jury over everyone else Amazing Nick Davies’ “Hack Attack” An amazing book and I’d like to bow respectfully to the author for what sounds like a harrowing experience over than a decade
