      Hillsborough 'hooliganism' apology
      A newspaper has apologised for publishing an article that appeared to link football hooliganism with the Hillsborough disaster.
      The Reading Chronicle article suggested the Hillsborough tragedy had been a symbol of the game's ills, it also cited hooliganism involving Reading Football Club fans leading to the club banning the paper.
      Berkshire Media Group apologised ''for appearing to link football hooliganism with the Hillsborough tragedy''.

      The media doing what it does best.
      Still the lowest of the f**king low after 24 years of them dragging the victims and their families through the dirt.
      These creatures are incapable of changing.

      If that's a recent article I hope the Attorney General slaps a Contempt of Court charge against them Stuey, he's warned the media several times that he won't tolerate anything said or printed that might prejudice the new inquests.

      F**king t**ts!

      From the link it would seem to be a very recent story Debs, another illustration of how detached people North of Watford can be, intentionally or not.

      Apologies are of no consequence mate, the article flies in the face of legal direction and is clearly in contempt.

      Absolutely mate, it boils my blood that the AG has realised the original inquests and enquiries were prejudiced due to the lies that were spouted by all media sources and has gone about trying to prevent it happening again, then they just go out and print s**t anyway.

      It's typical of how the s**t rag got away with bringing down anyone they felt was an easy target, get the headline, then apologise.  It's a crock of s**t mate.

      They should have implemented laws long ago.  Make an error, you can't hide your apology away.  Make newspapers print apologies the same size and on the same page(s) that the story was on.  Some days, some papers their would be more apologies than news.

      I agree mate but they shouldn't get the headline printed in the first place, that way the people being lied about wouldn't have to fight for their innocence to be proven, nor live with the consequences.

      I think the threat of having to print apologies of that size would be th deterrent and encourage a little fact checking and maybe even promote news telling over sensationalism and gossip mongering.

      Maybe for them but from their victims point of view they've still got to live with what was said because to a lot of people in this country, the written word is still gospel.

      Essentially this crock of sh*t is produced for the very same reason as the initial cover up, to accommodate and embellish a corrupt agenda; the consequences and offence are as profound as ever needless to say.

      Not being funny, but someone needs to sue these fuckers for deformation of character.

      Time, and time again these shits keep planting the same old seed that it was the fans fault.

      Thats what they do....f***in' scum. The same old sh*t journalism that prints anything they want and then back it up w/ " Sources". Then when called on it they print a half ass apology and bury it in the middle of the classifieds section. Such as that condescending attempt the Reading Chronicle puked out....''for appearing to link football hooliganism with the Hillsborough tragedy''.  I love how they used the words "appearing to link" as if they had no idea what their own story was and how they ignored every well known and verifiable fact regarding the tragedy.

      Reading Chronicle editor fired over Hillsborough hooliganism story
      The editor of the Reading Chronicle has been fired over a front page story which appeared to link Hillsborough with hooliganism.

      The ECHO understands Maurice O'Brien told friends he was sacked and could yet appeal against the decision.


      However, the newspaper's publishers refused to confirm he had been dismissed.

      Staff at the Chronicle were informed yesterday the editor was leaving the company following an internal investigation.

      Mr O'Brien was suspended last week after running the article, which also carried allegations about Reading FC and their supporters, on Thursday, May 20.

      Reading FC suspended their relationship with the newspaper over the story and the following day publishers Berkshire Media Group issued an "unreserved apology" for the Hillsborough remark.

      Last Thursday the newspaper carried a front page apology for the article.

      Keith McIntyre, managing director of Berkshire Media Group, said: "I issued a statement last night to staff letting them know that Maurice has left the company."

      When asked whether Mr O'Brien had been fired or if he resigned from the role, Mr McIntyre said "no comment".

      The Attorney General's Office launched an investigation into complaints the newspaper had broken the Contempt of Court Act by running the controversial article ahead of new inquests into the tragedy, but Dominic Grieve’s office decided not to take action against the Chronicle.

      Margaret Aspinall, chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, described the front page as an "absolute disgrace", while Sheila Coleman, from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, called for action to be taken against the newspaper.

      Both Mr Grieve and coroner Lord Justice Goldring had warned about the risk of publishing material which could “create a substantial risk that the course of justice in the inquests may be seriously impeded or prejudiced, particularly as this inquest involves a jury”.

      However, the Attorney General concluded the story - "however ill-judged" - had not met this legal test.

      Mr O' Brien had run the newsdesk at the Chronicle since 1997 and was promoted to the position of editor earlier this year, at the age of 64.

      The Lord Justice Taylor Report in 1991 and the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report of 2012 both concluded hooliganism did not play any part in tragedy, which led to the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans.

      Not sure where to put this so feel free to move it to the appropriate place. Link below takes you to a Chelsea forum (The Shed End) they are still convinced that it was the fans fault for the disaster. Unbelievable.

      Won't bother reading what those brain dead f**king morons get someone to type for them.
      The fact they dishonour the dead for a wind up tells you all you need to know about the cu*ts.
      The world knows what total cu*ts they are; confirmation is not needed.
      Their title hopes are f**king shot and they know it; this obscene conduct makes them feel better.


      Did actually have a peep and there are some very dignified and humane responses to the morons, fair play to them.
