Daily Mail hack’s shock as psychic career lays in tatters

The psychic career of Daily Mail journalist, Nick Pisa, lays in tatters this morning. It ended in stunning fashion after it was revealed he doesn’t really get messages from the other side.

Max Farquar has the full story and screenshots explaining how Pisa wrote the story that would have been published if Amanda Knox’s appeal had been rejected.  That would have been fine.  Only how could Pisa have possibly got the quotes he uses in the story from Italian prosecutors, given that Knox was successful and her conviction quashed?

Anyone looking for the article on the Daily Mail website finds this page in its place… or if you read it carefully, at least this is the page the Daily Mail should have on display in the interests of honesty and transparency…

    Hilarious. Makes you wonder how prevalent is this sort of thing in the MSM?

    I’d go further and state this is the MSM.

    Quite recently I posted link on the local rags Facebook wall which linked to a graphic on a blog which explained how disproportionate the tax take is in the UK. It was up for 24 hours and then vanished. Questions were ignored. Much like comments on the rags own website. Some get through others don’t again no explanation is ever given.

    They are all in the same game. Deception.
    Question has to be though what is the real purpose of this deception?

    I’m going to be controversial here and say that I don’t see that there is much wrong with this. Journalists have to write to deadlines so it helps to have something ready that is mostly pre-written – they can fill in the details later.

    We know that obituaries are written in advance because they sometimes get published accidentally, Mark Twain’s being the famous example.

    Mostly pre writing a story is one thing. Attributing detailed quotes to people who have never made them is something else altogether, and this is what Nick Pisa did. It is nothing less than lying.
