In all conscience, I would not be able to settle if I sat back and said nothing about what may well be, one of the most misleading and wholly disingenuous mainstream media articles that I have read for many a year.
I am of course, referring to something that was published earlier today, in the online version of the Daily Mirror, in regard to a recent YouTube video that was published by ex-East17 band member Brian Harvey.
Now anybody reading that headline, would almost certainly assume that Mr Harvey has totally lost the plot, and by drawing the readers attention to Mr Harvey’s claims that, he ‘has not been outside for five years’, and ‘has clones‘, leaves very little doubt as to the Mirror’s real intent.
To both totally discredit him and negate anything what Mr Harvey says (or presents evidence of wrongdoing) from now on perhaps?
If one was to read the article at face value, and accept what it says, it will of course have served it’s purpose, but if one was to look at what is not being said in the article, then things may appear a little clearer.
Now, I owe Mr Harvey nothing, as I believe that he has not done himself any favour’s lately, inasmuch as he has been taking advice from people on Social Media who are directly linked to the ‘Shadowy People’ he genuinely believes are trying to kill him, and he has made a grave error in stating that he has ‘not been outside for five years’ – when only recently he was protesting outside Downing Street, accompanied by a cameraman.However, the Mirrors’ claim that Mr Harvey has said that he ‘has clones’ is almost certainly a conscious attempt to make Mr Harvey appear delusional, as if they had done even the most basic research, they would have known that Mr Harvey, in a number of YouTube uploads and on his Twitter account – makes it perfectly clear that the ‘Clones’ he refers to, are in fact, ‘cloned images’ of the data stored on a hard disk drive, in the computer that was seized by the Metropolitan Police during his earlier arrest.
‘Disk cloning is the process of copying the contents of one computer hard disk to another disk or to an “image” file. This may be done straight from one disk to another, but more often, the contents of the first disk are written to an image file as an intermediate step, then the second disk is loaded with the contents of the image. Typically, this is done for archiving purposes, to restore lost or damaged data, or to move wanted data into a new disk, though other reasons also exist.
Unlike standard copying functions, disk cloning involves copying hidden and in-use files, and thus presents special challenges, as those types of files are typically not available for copying. Additional complications arise when the process is used for networked computers, as the network must be able to distinguish between different computers. Post-cloning operations may be necessary to address these and other issues’. – WIKIPEDIA
As for the rest of the article? …. It’s simply attempting to bring to the readers attention, a number of old negative news articles about Mr Harvey, that are already in the public domain, to flesh out what is in fact, a really lazy, and sloppy attempt to once again smear the man, possibly in response to the fact that Mr Harvey’s video has now gone viral …. is attracting a lot of attention, and the evidence he has to hand regarding phone hacking, by journalists (amongst others), may be starting to make somebody, very, very nervous indeed.
