John Cleese: The end of Paul Dacre’s reign, as the King of Fleet Street, is nearing.
As his power slips away, he has hit out at the man who took his job as Editor of The Daily Mail.
Mr. Dacre has accused Geordie Greig of not telling the whole truth.
However, Byline Investigates can reveal that Mr. Dacre has been accused of the same thing.
This happened after the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics in 2012.
Here is a clip of Mr. Dacre’s testimony.
Paul Dacre: “I will speak for Associated Newspapers and I have told this inquiry. I cannot be any more unequivocal that all my enquiries and all the evidence I have received, having spoken to the editors of my group… our group did not hack phones and I rather resent your continued insinuations that we did.”
John Cleese: As you saw and heard, Mr. Dacre denied on oath that his papers were involved in phone hacking.
But since then, considerable evidence to the contrary has emerged, indicating that this wasn’t true.
Listen to what convicted phone hackers Glenn Mulcaire and Greg Miskiw have to say….
Glenn Mulcaire: “My services were used by other papers, including the Mail On Sunday.”
Greg Miskiw: “We were the barrier between the illegal act and the Mail On Sunday.”
John Cleese: Both Mr. Mulcaire and Mr. Miskiw were jailed for their crimes. Mr. Dacre also faces that risk.
Because intentionally giving wrong or distorted evidence to a public inquiry, is a criminal offence in itself – punishable by upto 51 weeks in jail.
How much did Paul Dacre know?
Byline Investigates intends to find out.
