Daily Digest: Phone-hack denial, Trinity redundancies, Facebook porn-attack

Sorry may not have been the hardest word of late for a profusely contrite News International, but it has taken the News of the World publisher nigh-on six years to finally admit that phone hacking “was not the work of a single rogue reporter”. NI lawyer Rhodri Davies, however, disputed the statement made yesterday by the Leveson inquiry’s counsel, Robert Jay, that 28 NoW journalists had been identified from the avalanche of incriminating notes seized from private investigator Glenn Mulcaire. The news “occasioned some surprise on our side”, he said – NI thought the number was closer to just five – stressing that only Scotland Yard had seen the full cache of evidence. And there we were thinking that NI and the police were as thick as thieves. (Source: MediaGuardian)

Trinity Mirror Midlands is doing its bit to emancipate underpaid, overworked journalists. Reports suggest 50 editorial staff will be made redundant from its Midlands branch due to (deep breath): the creation of a regional production hub for both Birmingham and Coventry; the introduction of a regional features unit for entertainment and lifestyle; and the merging of some specialist reporter roles. Trinity’s cannibalising also includes the closure of three titles – the Chase Post, the Stafford Post and the Sutton News. All is not lost: five full-time editorial roles will be created.

Avert your eyes, Facebookers. “Porn, violent images and other graphic pieces of content” are flooding the social network site, according to CNN. More horrifically still, images include teen role model Justin Bieber assuming sexual positions (Media Digest can neither confirm nor deny whether this proves he is a father-to-be). “Mischief makers”, “clickjacking” or, inevitably, ‘hacktivist’ collective Anonymous are to blame. Facebook hasn’t commented, and the story has only come from a web security consultant, which we will only name if our account suddenly starts to show us even more of the Biebster than we’ve ever dreaded.

“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS at the London School of Economics, reacts to news that the UK government forced the Guardian into destroying hard drives that contained information leaked by Edward Snowden.
