    Another load of b/s. I doubt they needed to hack anyone when we have a police force eager to jump into bed with News Corp.

    Perhaps Hartigan can explain the ‘terror’ raids in Melbourne that were reported in The Australian before they actually happened.

    We will know Hartigan is serious when he apologises for lying to the court in the Guthrie matter in May last year.
    And when he announces the dismissal of the Herald Sun staff who faked their identities to trap politicians last November.
    What? They got pay rises?

    Turnbull’s attitude to carbon reduction will soon expose Hartigan

    News Ltd are political dunces

    Barracking for Abbott will leave News Ltd spin exposed.

    These nasty fools have had their global bluff called.

    I wonder if News Ltd or Fairfax will bother to mention Bob Brown’s recent comments.

    I’m not holding my breath.

    Wow I got through moderation. I’m still waiting for Richard Farmer to allow my comment from yesterday about Bob Katter & 7pm project. 🙁

    I’d be more interested to see the results of an investigation into payments and gifts made by lobbyists to News Ltd staff in return for favourable comment and wilful disinformation.
