Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
A former News Corp. (NWSA) security staff member in Britain was charged over claims he conspired with ex- company executive Rebekah Brooks to obstruct a probe into phone hacking at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid.
Lee Sandell, who worked at News Corp.’s News International U.K. publishing arm, sought to pervert the course of justice by working to hide evidence with Brooks, the unit’s former chief executive officer, and four others, the Crown Prosecution Service said today in a statement.
“It is in the public interest to charge Mr. Sandell with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice,” the CPS said in the statement. Sandell is scheduled to appear in a London criminal court tomorrow.
The Police said in a statement: "Lee Sandell, Rebekah Brooks, Charles Brooks, Mark Hanna, Paul Edwards and Daryl Jorsling on a day between July 15, 2011, and July 19, 2011, conspired together, and with persons unknown, to do an act or series of acts which had a tendency to pervert the course of public justice".
The statement said the accused wanted to "conceal documents, computers and other electronic devices, from officers of the MPS who were investigating allegations of phone hacking and corruption of public officials in relation to the News of the World and The Sun newspapers, contrary to Sec 1 (1) of the Criminal Law Act 1977".
