Murdochs were given secret defence briefings

Rebekah Brooks, Rupert Murdoch and James MurdochThe extraordinary access that Cabinet ministers granted Rupert Murdoch and his children was revealed for the first time yesterday, with more than two dozen private meetings between the family and senior members of the Government in the 15 months since David Cameron entered Downing Street.

In total, Cabinet ministers have had private meetings with Murdoch executives more than 60 times and, if social events such as receptions at party conferences are included, the figure is at least 107.

TVNL Comment: The Murdoch "news" empire is nothing more than a political psy-op. They tell you right up front that they are the "most powerful name in news." Well, what does that say? What do the mean by power? Power to influence. That is all they could mean. That is not journalism, that is propaganda activism, or in this case establishment public perception management.
