Even LCN is Afraid of Rupert and
Rebekah Brooks !


On Monday, it was revealed that Rebekah Brooks, who was at the time the editor of The Sun and is now chief executive of News International, the British newspaper division of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, had personally phoned Mr. Brown to tell him about The Sun's scoop in October 2006.

Ms. Hyde writes in a blog post :

Gird your stomachs - I have further information on the Gordon Brown story.

Are you insufficiently repulsed by the Sun's mysteriously-obtained exclusive on Brown's son's cystic fibrosis? Don't worry - like everything about the hacking scandal, there are always more details to emerge to compound the horror. I've been speaking to a source close to Gordon Brown at the time of the story, who recalls that it was served up with a chaser of threat:

 

"Gordon insisted - despite a heavy brow-beating from Rebekah - that he was not willing to let his son's medical condition be the stuff of a Sun exclusive," recalls this source. "So he put out a statement on PA to spike their scoop and make clear that despite his condition, Fraser was fit and healthy. The Sun were utterly furious, and Brown's communications team were told that if Gordon wanted to get into No 10, he needed to learn that was not how things were done."

Yes, how DARE the then-chancellor refuse to accept that his child's health was not technically a commercial Murdoch property? I'd like to tell you there's a sick bag located in the rear pocket of the seat in front of you. But I'm afraid you're on your own.
