Two Senior Murdoch Journalists Attempt Suicide

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Murdochgate may just taken a detour into the tragic following reports that two senior Murdoch journalists have attempted suicide. MSNBC reports: "Two senior journalists working for Rupert Murdoch's News International have apparently attempted suicide as pressure mounts at the scandal-hit publisher of the now-defunct News of the World. The suicide attempts follow weeks of intense scrutiny of the role of The Sun, another Murdoch paper, in the phone-hacking scandal and police bribery case. The man and the woman, who were reportedly involved in separate incidents, were rescued in time, a friend of one of them said, according to a report Tuesday on stuff.co.nz....The two journalists who attempted suicide have been checked into the hospital, according to a report Tuesday by the Financial Times. The newspaper reported that their care is being paid for by News International.   The London Evening Standard reported that other News International journalists are “terribly stressed and many are on the edge.” The company has reportedly offered psychiatric help to any journalist who wants help." While certainly sad, it is curious why one would move to such a dramatic step instead of simply putting one's belongings in a box, and walking out of the office door for good. Especially if one is innocent of anything. Just how putrid will the Murdoch spying stench be when all is revealed, and just how high up does it go in other parallel media organizations who most certainly acted in comparable ways in the pursuit for that most elusive commodity - information? And will this be the end of any near-tragic stories associated with the billionaire media mogul? Somehow we doubt it.

More from MSNBC:

"It was not a suicide pact," the friend told the New Zealand-based news organization. "The attempts were not simultaneous and there is no suggestion of a pact."

 

Eleven current and former staff of the Sun, Britain's best-selling daily tabloid, have been arrested this year on suspicion of bribing police or civil servants for tip-offs, Reuters reported Tuesday.

 

Their arrests have come as a result of information provided to the police by the Management and Standards Committee, or MSC, a body set up by parent company News Corp to facilitate police investigations and liaise with the courts.

 

The work of the MSC, which was set up to be independent of the conglomerate's British newspaper arm News International, has caused bitterness among staff, many of whom feel betrayed by an employer they have loyally served.

 

"People think that they've been thrown under a bus," one News International employee told Reuters. "They're beyond angry - there's an utter sense of betrayal, not just with the organization but with a general lynch-mob hysteria."

Their crime in attempted suicide: "Attempted collateral damage". Humans are nothing more than collateral, because they are what backs the bonds (BOND = SLAVERY), hence, they are guilty of attempted collateral damage. Don't you know you are a corporate fiction? JOHN JOE. JANE DOE. 

 

You also need to APPLY for a death certificate after death. Do we take the forms to St. Peter at the pearly gates for him to fill out? 

 

Or maybe it's all just an illusion.

Methink these 2 were 'fake' suicides, simply to draw the attention to the 'fact' that all these investigations are taking a toll NOT on the people at the top (as they should) but to the lower ranking journalists & below, in a way to draw sympathy for the common man (the majority of people employed by News International AREN'T scumbags), in the hope that this will deflect some attention away from the Murdoch empire for long enough to let things settle down a bit, then get forgotten...

Big gestures are what this is all about these days to convince the majority of people that one is genuinely sorry about the phone hacking and all the other misdemeanors: remember, not long ago, the abrupt closing down of Murdoch's flagship newspaper the 'News Of The World' yet only a few months later, it's back under a different name, 'The Sun On Sunday', most probably (re)employing many former employees...

Um, no.  Good thiing they failed.  3 very large questions come to mind:

You mean like Walmart putting out large insurance policies on their employees? Wouldn't surprise me.

Gotta ask if those were really 'suicide' attempts. Of course, now that those people were rescued (hospitalized), I'm sure they'll be medicated thru the roof and not be able to spill the beans on anything.

Note to the rest of those journalists out there: be sure to mention to friends (and leave some documentation in various locations) data that should be known, and that if you're found as a suicide, IT'S NOT TRUE!!

Putrid spying stench is right! I have a little sympathy for the journalists, but if they expected a worm like Murdoch to protect them, they're pretty foolish. At least they have a conscience and realize they've done something wrong, which is more than can be said about their festering pus sack of a boss.

when the murdoch crime stories broke, the police were involved, even the Yard, perhaps

pols, possibly even at the ministerial level;  this type of "dirt" gathered in nefarious ways, has many uses and "prices"

and of course celebrities

then, amyWinehouse passed away

or, she woulda owned the entire mordoch empire, if she'd let slewie run her case

but dead stars don't sue live scumbags

how wild would it be to assume that people and info-intelAgents are all over the place, and many of them are still employees

we don't know how many police interviews have been done

so, in an inverstigation like this, if you know something, do you spill your guts?

if they've already given you the bright lights and 3rd degree and you've signed a damned statement at to poleeece station, where ya gonna go?  you're not even a suspect, either!

what if you heard something?  pillow talk if you dated someone from within the company

what would an executive admin assistant know?  how would you handle this info if you were such a high-placed "secretary"?  here many of the "involvees" know each other socially;  these are newspapers!

i've refused to do what a superior demanded many many times

the last time was with a close personal friend, who asked me to something unsafe on a house we were working on;  we got thru it ok;  but the job took an extra day, and the whole company {lol all 4-5}  had been pushing to get it done!

another time, 1st day on a job as a property manager for ~250 widespread houses and 4-plexes, the broker told me to drive to SF b/c he must have some papers from there by tomorrow morning or some big fuking escrow won't close.  i told him it wasn't my job and go bother somebody else. he was a "boss" personality type and went apprpriately ape-shit

this was a good sized office and there were 4 secretaries and staff there who had never heard anyone say 'no' to this guy before.  years!  and they all started laughing and couldn't stop!  heluva first day, slewie!

the time to have packed up and boogied woulda been the very first day you knew the score, BiCheZ! or the first time you were asked to pull a little "shit";  this guy bailed out a few daze ago>>>

Good post. These things are complex and each player has varying tolerances for pressure and bullshit. Each has varying interests and aliances. Two words here: Mission creep. If you are in it for years, you can not notice that the temperature has gone up, you just know you don't feel good anymore but never think to directly attribute it to the job. You feel loyal, or think your boss only has so long any way, so you stay with it, as the indignities become normalized and you are innured to total weirdness. You change a little at a time to accomodate the little shifts, and then you are in it, of it, fed by it, trapped, and know nothing else to do but what you are doing, it pays the mortgage, so WTF.

Take Murdoch's media out and more bankster control. I think he is the first of many of the elite to fall. They all have dirt on them Banksters have control of intelligence agencies that might have aided.

Control over a companies financial records, ownership of their stock and knowledge of their illegal activities will be used against those companies  by the NWO - one after another after another as this plays out.

The elites better start to get together and begin to make a stand against this system. No one is safe.

It's hard to have any sympathy for anyone who attempts suicide.

If they COMMIT suicide, it's clear that something drive them far enough that they geniunely wanted to end their lives, and shit got real, and that's sad and all.

But a suicide attempt is almost always just a means of trying to get sympathy. Or it's a sign of incompetence. Or both.

 

And we all know where you can find sympathy, bitchez; in the dictionary, somewhere between "shit" and "syphilis". OH YES HE DID!

This is actually really sick and really sad. Interesting to me though that these people apparently had a conscience and recognized that what they did was immoral. Having apparently come to that conclusion, they decided to remove themselves.

Tragic and saddening. Also (maybe) beautiful in a 'long enough timeline' sense because maybe, just, maybe..Honor still lives. I have always held my fire as far as Murdock, the W.S.J. & FOX news is concerned. I don't feel comfortable with that anymore. As far as 'public' propaganda goes, W.S.J. & FOX are the best of the worst. I do not, and have not, watched FOX for years ( once you get a sense of what 'news' really is, T.V. becomes extremely offensive and toxic), I do however read the W.S.J. daily. I personally consider the W.S.J.to be the only 'not a cartoon' paper left.

Yes, they are weak and full of holes if you belong to the 1% of Americans who no longer watch the shadows dancing on the cave wall. That being said though; The W.S.J. is the only daily 'newspaper' that I can read without feeling like a North Korean.

The W.S.J is obviously not ZEROHEDGE, but it is 'an introduction to truth', VS progressivite 'suicide' by stupidity, Jim Jones, drink the koolaid, EVIL promoted by the propagandist, pro state, pro regime, 1984, animal farm, brave new world crap shat out by the 100% sold out machine.

That's it for my rant, and I'm sticking to it.

The Journal's news dept has always been excellent, but their editorial page is fuckin' batshit.  They're as bad as the doctrinaires at the NYT.

"While certainly sad, it is curious why one would move to such a dramatic step instead of simply putting one's belongings in a box, and walking out of the office door for good. Especially if one is innocent of anything."

Are you serious?

"Especially if one is innocent of anything."

need a face palm shaking head emoticon right now.

Are you next going to be saying that we are either with you, or against you?

The problem is and has always been "Rupert Murdoch"

this old bastard has no scruples, morals or integrity and he should have been retired long ago !

Rupert is a ruthless hack - bastard and has the monopoly on global mis-information,

especially in his sensational garbage "rags" that pass for "Newspapers."

the sooner Rupert is off the scene, the better for the world !

Looks like the illuminati stroke pill is still working. They must have checked into a hospital to get their stomachs pumped out.

On the journalists clinging to their job.

First, not sure they will want to restart from zero their career.

And second, self indiction is something big in US citizenism.

One has to keep in mind that US citizen can be sentenced if they self indict, even if it is known through material evidences they are not guilty.

Walking away even when being innocent looks terribly like a confession. Better not take that route in US citizen societies and the US citizen justice system.

Time may be approaching for Murdoch to take swimming lessons with his employer, the Mossad; just like Robert Maxwell did.

The only thing worse than attempting to commit suicide ... is fucking that up as well.

Now what?

I guess they could try to being decent honest truthful people.

Is that really so unappealing?

The alternative: Try harder!

Pick one.

Journalists?

Propagandists. EPIC FAIL. They are worthless, they cannot even kill themselves.
