Letters responding to: For a free press, with no buts, by Mick Hume
Thanks to Mick Hume for his contribution to the Sky paper review. For once someone was prepared to stand up to the Leveson Inquiry and this sinister attempt at state press control. His comment about’mission creep’ was spot on and it’s shameful the way the grief of the bereaved families has been hijacked by those seeking to further their own political agenda.
Please carry on making his voice heard for all of us who want our press to remain free.

The question of how free the press is to tell us the facts (assuming it would like to be) can be determined by comparing the coverage given to the Savile scandal in which the BBC clearly committed sins of omission and the coverage of the far greater 28gate scandal where the entire BBC organisation knowingly and deliberately lied, for at least six years in an open attempt to promote totalitarian controls over us all.
With a relatively few honorable exceptions most of the press had censored, spiked or ignored any mention of a fraud to keep most people in Britain ignorant.
