RIGGING THE NEWS

Caught on camera: top lobbyists boasting how they influence the PM

Bell Pottinger is a major 'lobbying' company.

According to The Independent (PM 6 Dec 2011), executives at Bell Pottinger have been taped:

* Suggesting that the company can manipulate Google results to "drown" out negative coverage of human rights violations and child labour;

* Revealing that Bell Pottinger has a team which "sorts" negative Wikipedia coverage of clients.


Bell Pottinger can create blogs – blogs that appear to be independent.

"These would contain positive content and popular key words that would rank highly in Google searches.

Bell Pottinger "enables government videos and articles to move to the top of internet searches, while less favourable stories can move down the rankings.

"The ambition obviously is to drown that negative content and make sure that you have positive content out there online."

Bell Pottinger provides "past examples of its work, included manipulating Google rankings for an East African money transfer company called Dahabshiil."

References to a former Dahabshill employee, linked to al Qaeda, "disappeared from the first 10 pages of a Google search for the company."

Sir Clement Freud.

Sir Clement Freud, grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, had a holiday home in Praia da Luz, in Portugal.

In July 2007, Clement Freud helped the parents of missing child Madeleine McCann by cooking them dinners in Praia da Luz and offering them drinks.

Initially when he wrote to them offering assistance they thought it was a hoax. (Clement Freud - Wikipedia)

Sir Clement Freud's son Matthew Freud is married to Elisabeth Murdoch, daughter of Rupert Murdoch.

Matthew Freud is head of Freud Communications, an international public relations firm in the United Kingdom.

Matthew Freud is a member of the 'Chipping Norton set' along with David Cameron, Christopher Shale (recently found dead) and Rebekah Brooks.

David Wilson, the chairman of the public relations agency Bell Pottinger, handles Rebekah Brook's press inquiries.

David Wilson was on the PR team aiding Madeleine McCann's parents.

On Saturday 2 July, "Rebekah Brooks was a guest at an all-night party hosted by PR boss Matthew Freud and his wife, Murdoch's daughter Elisabeth, at their Cotswolds mansion, Burford Priory."

In attendance were the BBC director general, Mark Thompson, BBC reporter Robert Peston, Peter Mandelson, former Foreign Secretary David Miliband, and the education secretary, Michael Gove. (Rebekah Brooks's arrest came as a surprise despite fortnight of bad press)
