Not so fast about the Guardian. A demand has been made, but Rusbridger says they will fight.

Good luck to The Guardian. This isn’t a case of The Guardian having committed a “crime” – rather, this is petty, vindictive BS. Unfortunately, the objective reality is quite simple: the police hadn’t done their job to that point – rather, they were bought off by corporate interests.

I hope the Guardian takes its case to the streets every day until it is finally dropped. Will we ever be rid of the corruption from the Murdoch empire?

Danny, that link goes to a post where someone admits that what they did was wrong. Also, the residence of the Guardian’s parent company, Guardian Media Group, is the UK.

He was saying it was wrong? We must have been reading a different article.

Anyone with a passing acquaintance with the UK media knows what fraudulent, dishonest, self-righteous, hypocritical scum the Guardian are.
