Hi,

so yet another Ukip effort to bend the truth in a hagiography I guess!

First there was the stunningly tedious ‘Hard Pounding’ then a series by the affable Mark Daniels who sadly died CLICK HERE, he was first hired in by Roger Knapman to write ‘Cranks & Gadflies’ and then retained by Nigel Farage to write a series of hagiographies passed off as autobiographies. Now presumably this latest hagiography will be an attempt to sell the myth that Nigel Farage & Aaron Banks were in some way responsible for BreXit.

It has been a well understood truism that ‘he who wins the war writes the history’, but nowadays, with the burgeoning of vanity publishing & short run publications, there is an increasing tendency to rush to print to grab the truth by the scruff of the neck and publish a book selling ones own spin, to lay claim to a hagiographical version of the truth. There are numerous journalists who moonlight writing or editing books and media, to deliver whatever myth the pay master wants delivered.

Presumably the bigger the payment the more prominent the author and/or journalist! No surprises there then.

I am however surprise that a front line journalist for a major National newspaper sat on the story of tyhe arrest she witnessed on the 22nd. July, only publishing on Friday 12th. August! It does of course show how readily news is manipulated to suit and I guess he who pays the piper calls the shots!

Daily Mail’s Farage/FBI Arrest “Scoop” Was an Inside Job

 
By Kieran Corcoran | 3:36 am, August 17, 2016

Saturday’s Daily Mail carried a surprisingly vivid account of the arrest of Nigel Farage’s aide, George Cottrell.

Cottrell, 22, was ambushed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and led away by FBI agents on a variety of charges related to financial misconduct – including money laundering – several weeks ago.

The story, billed as an Exclusive by the Mail’s political editor-at-large Isabel Oakeshott, is surprisingly detailed in its recounting of the event.

The Mail reported:

As they arrived in the US, Cottrell was briefly detained by customs officers in Chicago in what appeared to be a routine check before being allowed to continue his journey.

To Mr Farage’s shock, five FBI officers were waiting to meet Cottrell as they disembarked from their return flight from Cleveland to Chicago O’Hare on July 22, en route to Heathrow.

The distressed former Ukip leader – who knew nothing of his aide’s alleged illegal activities – was given no information about Cottrell’s arrest, and was forced to return to London without him.

If it seems almost as detailed as an eyewitness account, that’s because it is.

Heat Street can reveal that Oakeshott was at the airport with Farage and his entourage when the agents struck.

She had spent the earlier portion of the day watching Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, and live-tweeted parts of his speech:

What a spectacle

 

Although the Mail makes no explicit reference to the fact, she was travelling with the group, which included Cottrell and Leave.EU spokesman Andy Wigmore.

Oakeshott was along for the ride as part of her efforts to co-write a book on the EU Referendum.

The tome has been described by insiders as a “hagiography” of UKIP.

The book’s existence was revealed recently in the diary pages of the Evening Standard – prompting Oakeshott to claim she is “just helping” and that the named authors will be Wigmore and Banks:

@IsabelOakeshott Looking forward to your Brexit book. When is publication?

Thanks for your interest @ESallyB – it’s @Arron_banks and @andywigmore ‘s book not mine – I’m just helping. As fast as we can write it!

Perhaps, but Heat Street understands that Oakeshott is in fact being paid a healthy fee for her help – and good luck to her.

But shouldn’t the Mail’s readers have been told that the author of its potentially serious crime story was in fact on the scene as the action unfolded, making nice with those closest to the suspect as part of a moonlighting exercise?
