From Channel 4 (UK):
A recording from March earlier this year, obtained by investigative website Exaro, shows the 82-year-old as we've never seen him before - raging against the police and claiming that the inquiry into corrupt payments to public officials has been blown out of proportion.http://www.channel4.com/...
"I mean, it's a disgrace. Here we are, two years later, and the cops are totally incompetent," he says.
The head of a $30bn media empire was speaking to a room full of Sun newspaper journalists - specifically, Channel 4 News understands, those who had been arrested over claims they had paid public officials, including police officers, for information.
"The idea that the cops then started coming after you, kick you out of bed, and your families, at six in the morning, is unbelievable," he says. "But why are the police behaving in this way? It's the biggest inquiry ever, over next to nothing."
This is from the tape that was alleged to exist, which I wrote about here a couple of weeks ago:
It does appear that on the tape, in which Rupert is talking to a meeting of reporters under his employ who were pinched for bribery, that he admits to bribery and cover-up! This is in stark contrast to what he told Parliament when he appeared before them with his son, James.
A little bird told me that the release of this tape is 'endgame'. Which I think means Rupert is about to be in lots of trouble. Ohpleaseohpleaseohplease
According to our ceebs:
Tom Watson (UK MP) was on TV tonight saying that he has to be brought in and questioned about this.Ceebs also says an 11-minute version of the tape will be released tomorrow. (!)
