Raging Bile Duct

RAGING BILE DUCT ..

Australia`s east coast state`s Police have been accused by the embedded-media of leaking information to so-called “Biker“ crime gangs. Meanwhile monster-media in the UK have been caught-out tapping or hacking phones that belong to victims of crime, bribing UK MET Police and buggering up missing children investigations.

To save his skin and wallet, Murdoch shut down “News of the World“, throwing all staff under the bus. Not just the criminals. Too much noise has been made by the Australian Journo Herd along the lines of, it could never happen here and, there is no proof of phone tapping or hacking going on in Australia.

Foxnews clips on Youtube become National Newspaper text, by the raw psychic talent of the Limited-News Journo-Herd. The right wing slant has nothing to do with any email Bill Sammon ever wrote. Everybody has every faith that the Aussie media can investigate itself. Except me. So I did a little digging.

Good morning,
Thanks for your reply with the info you have provided.

I have checked with a few of our teams and cannot find anything that suggests we are involved in any such investigations. However given your query relates to investigations being managed by the Australian Federal Police you may need to ask them to respond to your questions. If such investigations are underway, it may also include the Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC), so you may need to contact them.

AFP: afpnationalmedia-afp.gov.au (all three questions)

CCC: ccc-ccc.wa.gov.au
(I think question three would be the only one for the CCC)

Regards
Samuel Dinnison

Question
Can the Police Association please confirm, if Simon Overland`s `Resignation` resulting from disputes with TPAV, was related to Police being `enticed` to tip off or pass on information to members of the Australian Media?
(Similar to the UK MET and News of the World)

Since Mr Overland`s resignation I would expect the email address

Would it please be possible to

Explainer

Of course folks, I don`t expect the Police, or any of the other`s I emailed with questions to bugger up operations, arrests, or evidence etc.

 

Analysis

The deafening silence of no reply. Not even being sent any links to any media releases that may already exist. No crumbs of anything useful. Seems to indicate that those contacted may only be interested in the embedded-media.

While the topics of tapping or hacking phones in Australia, by the Aussie media, and MET type behaviour by Aussie Police are left un-answered.
I now seem to have a bigger list of questions. Ironic aint it.

Questions like, Does Overland not want to be contacted?
Or, Does Victoria Police not want Overland contacted?

 

The one thing I feel my little exercise did prove, is “Journalists_Verses_Bloggers“, the embedded-media`s imagined threat from bloggers, is a load of bullcrap. It is just the embedded-media talking about it`s favorite topic, itself.

So now I will shelve the topic “Journalists_Verses_Bloggers“ as just the embedded-media, with a dose of writer`s block, venting their
