is the sun newspaper morally capable of framing jimmy savile

A drugs trial came to a halt this week when British Judge Alistair McCreath accused a Sun newspaper journalist called Mazher Mahmood of attempting to persuade a witness to change his testimony and then lying about it under oath.
The Judge's comments came as the drugs trial incited solely by Mazher Mahmood against television personality Tulisa Contostavios, collapsed in chaos.
Mahzer Mahmood had been seeking to create a sensational story for the Sun newspaper by entrapping Tulisa Contostavios into supplying him with cocaine.
He had successfully generated sensational stories in the past by entrapping other celebrities using a variety of similar methods and inducements.
Judge McCreath dismissed the case a week into the trial accusing Mazher Mahmood, the only prosecution witness, of lying to him.
The Sun newspaper now faces a bill for court costs. Mahzer Mahmood may be tried for perjury.
The Judge threw out the case apparently because he considered that Mahzer Mahmood's entrapment operation on behalf of the Sun newspaper against Tulisa Contostavios amounted to a frame up.
Mahzer Mahmood formerly worked for Rupert Murdock's News Of The World publication which was closed after its staff were caught routinely bribing police officers, subverting politicians and hacking into the phones of private citizens.
The Judge stated that Mahzer Mahmood had lied to him when claiming not to have pressured his own driver, a man called Alan Smith, to change his testimony that Tulisa Contostavios was in fact opposed to drug use.
"There are strong grounds," said the Judge, " for believing Mr Mahmood told me lies about his dealings with the driver Alan Smith. There are also strong grounds for believing that the underlying purpose of these lies was to conceal the fact that he had been manipulating the evidence in this case by getting Mr Smith to change his account."
In the aftermath of the trial's collapse, the singer Tulisa Contostavios spoke frankly about the Sun newspaper's attempts to destroy her career and her life.
She said that the story behind the Sun's publication of the untrue headline "Tulisa's cocaine deal shame," was horrific and disgusting entrapment.
"Mahmood got me and my team completely intoxicated and persuaded me to act the part of a bad, rough ghetto girl," she said. "They recorded this and produced this as evidence when I thought it was an audition. It was a terrible thing to do."
Mahmood's former editor at News International's defunct News Of The World newspaper Andy Coulson is currently serving a jail sentence for hacking into phones belonging to members of the public.
The Leveson Enquiry was established in Britain two years ago to investigate criminal behaviour at titles owned by Rupert Murdock.
Mahmood himself gave evidence at the enquiry but was allowed to appear with his identity concealed.
I am suggesting that the Leveson Enquiry was an existential threat to Rupert Murdock's business empire and that elements within that empire may have chosen to frame Jimmy Savile to distract public, police and political attention from the rampant criminality of News International and its employees.
They needed something big. Mr Savile was a hugely popular, conveniently dead celebrity with a reputatation as a Christian. He could not speak for himself or fight back or sue. He may just have been the perfect target.
As for Tulisa Contostavios, she was not the perfect target, simply because she was still alive.
I ask you gentle readers to consider all these things carefully before you go along with the Sun newspaper (whose sole revenue stream comes from phone sex lines) or Sky News or The Times of London, or any other corrupt (and bankrupt) British or Irish media organ, labelling Jimmy Savile as (their favourite word) a "pervert."
