Mrs. Lane, journalist of the local newspaper “The Open Bolt” in Oklahoma was caught in the act of hacking a phone in the city hall.
Members of the security building discovered her when she was trying to stick a microphone with chewed gum on the telephone of Mr. Chirico, the governor.
I got in exclusive for this blog an interview with Mrs. Lane who told me why she acted like this:
“I was just following orders from Rebekah Brooks. She told me that if I got the exclusive that Mr. Chirico called every day to erotic lines, I would go out of this damned local newspaper where the less important is news, because its 80% of content is only with publicity purpose.”
Is it journalism losing its credibility with journalists who act just like that for getting an exclusive and becoming celebrity? And the most important question: Do you think that I really interviewed Mrs. Lane and this story is true?
