And so the Guardian’s police scoops continue…

Another day, another Guardian scoop by Amelia Hill of an arrest of another former News of the World journalist in the ‘phone hacking’ investigation. Another example of the Guardian publishing information apparently not available to other outlets. Another failure of the rest of the media and the public to ask how this clique of Guardian journalists manages to learn about police activities before they are made public.

The give away is in the BBC’s write up of the story:

Will the Guardian reveal how police information always seems to find its way to David Leigh, Nick Davies and Amelia Hill before anyone else?  Or will they continue to hide behind the ‘we’ve done nothing illegal and we always protect our sources’ line?

Who at the Metropolitan Police are Leigh, Davies and Hill in touch with?  There is a smell surrounding this that only gets stronger – unless one puts their head in the sand.

    “Will the Guardian reveal how police information always seems to find its way to David Leigh, Nick Davies and Amelia Hill before anyone else?”

    Maybe the Guardian is hacking the police phone system?

    But I think not!

    Instead I blame it on the freemasons, they are all in the same lodge…

    Do journalists have no mutual ‘friends’?

    How many degrees of separation between James and members of the Guardian clique?

    So all the mutual friends just happen to be called Amelia or Nick and work at the Guardian? Yeah right. Don’t they have any friends at other papers?
