Cameron choose to humiliate Leveson and disrepect honest victims

Lord Justice Leveson has finally published a 2,000 page report which summed up his findings on the inquiry which the government launched last year to explore the ethics and journalistic standards newspapers and other forms of media incorporate on a daily basis. Leveson's inquiry intended to unravel the events which surrounded the phone hacking scandal which angered many people across Britain. It was up to Leveson to interview countless amount of people who were victim to such crime, editors and journalists past and present, politicians past and present and media moguls to reveal their relationships between one another, openly talk about the emotional damage papers caused to loved ones and passionately express their concern about the attitudes of the media towards the general public.

News bulletins became what BBC were all about in the 1920s but by 1927, sport became an instrumental part of the medium's coverage, broadcasting live commentaries for rugby union and football.

Obama's US election victory, a firm warning to global right-wing politics

Mitt Romney and Barack Obama (Image: CBS News) Barack Obama got what he wanted - a second term as President of the United States, a second chance to tell his citizens that they can, and will live in a country which leads, inspires and prosper the world which at present, offers uncertainty and divide. The Presidential race prior to November 6th was hyped by the media as tight. The media gave Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his Party false hope that he even had a chance to take over the country. The Massachusetts governor lost comprehensively to Obama and having heard CNN's reports that Florida State was won by the Democrats, the victory for the current President was comfortable. Where did it all go wrong for Romney? He had a strong fan base, won over some doubters who didn't like his Mormon ways of living and he spent a huge amount of dollar to convince the US public he should be the next President. His campaign started off shaky after he was confirmed the Republic
