Tabloids, Tories and Telephone HackingDispatches examines allegations that during Andy Coulson's time as editor of News of the World, phone hacking was a routine practice at the paper and carried out with his knowledge.

    Can you say Police State..They are snatching our privacy and more and more freedom right out from under folks..Hell whats next we won't be able to wipe our own azzez without them knowing it?? this pisses me off.

    Yeah, it looks like pretty scary stuff, it's bad enough here in Canada, but it seems ten times worse there. Sadly 911 made this a top earning industry, and maybe an excuse for the powers that be to do what they've always wanted to do. But remember what that guy at the airport said, 'keep your hands off my junk.'

    Many say: there is no God but then we accept the invisible humans we imagine at the top of the tops as being the top.

    first part works - rest is blocked by channel 4 (for me anyway) I tried to find an alternate source and failed...

    This is a 2010 documentary? How coincidental.

  7. Declan_Walsh

    This is another attempt by the vaporous liberal media to whine about the competition who is kicking their ass. It is so easy to hack someones voice mail with a $129 auto dialer you can buy at radio shack.

    Moral of story. Make sure you are always changing your computer and voice mail passwords. ANd please....don't ever pick a voice mail password of 1234, or repetitive numbers 9999...

    Faulure to comprehend? Phone hacking is illegal. Period. it shoulf be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
