In July 2011, it was revealed that News of the World reporters had hacked the voicemail of murder victim Milly Dowler.

PhD student forced to remove all WikiLeaks references from her dissertation

Cynthia McKinney, who has since earned her PhD from Antioch University on the subject of leadership, warns that it could set a dangerous precedent. McKinney, a former US Representative and Green Party politician, had originally used many of the same WikiLeaks documents in her dissertation that US journalist Barrett Brown had allegedly shared on his site Project PM. Brown, who was sentenced this year to 63 months in federal prison in relation to the 2012 Stratfor email leak, faced up to 45 years in prison for linking to the WikiLeaks data. According to McKinney, the WikiLeaks references in her dissertation caused the librarian at Antioch University to "completely, totally freak".

Met press office provided journalists' mobile numbers so police could view call records and find sources

The Investigatory Powers Tribunal yesterday also heard that the Met Police press office provided the mobile telephone numbers of Sun journalists who had called in to check stories and ask for comments to investigating officers. Their phone records and telephone location data were then secretly accessed by police in order to identify confidential sources. The court will decide whether the Met breached Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights which protects freedom of expression and the confidentiality of journalists' sources by viewing the phone records of Sun journalists and the paper's newsdesk telephone.

It heard that in applications to view phone records, the Met wrote the names and titles of three journalists involved wrong and made other mistakes. De nieuwe journalist - Iedereen journalist. De Nederlandse Publieke Omroep maakt gebruik van cookies.

The presence of a conflict of interest is independent of the occurrence of impropriety.

Conflict of interest

Therefore, a conflict of interest can be discovered and voluntarily defused before any corruption occurs. A widely used definition is: "A conflict of interest is a set of circumstances that creates a risk that professional judgement or actions regarding a primary interest will be unduly influenced by a secondary interest. "[1] Primary interest refers to the principal goals of the profession or activity, such as the protection of clients, the health of patients, the integrity of research, and the duties of public office. Secondary interest includes not only financial gain but also such motives as the desire for professional advancement and the wish to do favours for family and friends, but conflict of interest rules usually focus on financial relationships because they are relatively more objective, fungible, and quantifiable.

Senior US congressman Mike Rogers: Glenn Greenwald is 'a thief'

Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House intelligence committee, suggested Greenwald was a “thief” after he worked with news organizations who paid for stories based on the documents. “For personal gain, he’s now selling his access to information, that’s how they’re terming it … A thief selling stolen material is a thief,” Politico quoted Rogers as saying after a committee hearing on Tuesday.

Rogers said his source for the information was “other nations' press services”. Since leaving the Guardian in October, Greenwald has worked on a freelance basis with news organizations worldwide on stories based on Snowden’s surveillance documents.
