Are the Sun Newspaper Criminals?

Continued from my earlier published article http://theresilientliberal.com/2013/04/18/the-sun-newspapers-attack-on-millwall-and-the-social-classes/

I have three questions:

 A picture copyrighted by Copyright 2012 News Group Newspapers Ltd and/or its licensors clearly shows members of the public in the pictures. Did they obtain permission?

Privacy – It is unacceptable to photograph individuals in private places without their consent.

Will they ever leave Millwall alone?

Harassment-   i) Journalists must not engage in intimidation, harassment or persistent pursuit.

ii) They must not persist in questioning, telephoning, pursuing or photographing individuals once asked to desist; nor remain on their property when asked to leave and must not follow them. If requested, they must identify themselves and whom they represent.

iii) Editors must ensure these principles are observed by those working for them and take care not to use non-compliant material from other sources.

Did they ask Millwall for permission to examine and search the premises?

Clandestine devices and subterfuge – i) The press must not seek to obtain or publish material acquired by using hidden cameras or clandestine listening devices; or by intercepting private or mobile telephone calls, messages or emails; or by the unauthorised removal of documents or photographs; or by accessing digitally-held private information without consent.

ii) Engaging in misrepresentation or subterfuge, including by agents or intermediaries, can generally be justified only in the public interest and then only when the material cannot be obtained by other means.

Now, there are clearly codes of practice potentially being breached here. If you know more on this, please do get in touch or feel free to make a complaint:

  1. It’s obvious that the sun are using events at Wembley to string out a series of attacks on Millwall FC. These attacks include a series of inaccuracies including a Mill-wall of shame in which they stated that the arrests at this years Luton v Millwall FA cup game were attributed to Millwall which was not true. There is no investigation in their articles they simply “print what they want”

  2. Funny how the sun news paper have the cheek to publish crap about millwall f.c, these are the journalists that hacked people’s phones one of which was the poor little girl who was found dead but that didn’t stop the SCUM BAG sun hacking her voice mails giving her family false hope, so when reporting things about my football club calling us scum think about who’s the biggest scum THE SUN NEWS PAPER.
