The Inside Story of the UK Phone Hacking Trial
Diana, Princess of Wales, died believing the Royal Family was hacking into her private phone conversations and leaking those details to the press to discredit her. Killed in a high-speed chase by paparazzi, her car lost control and crashed into a pillar whilst she fled for what she described as ‘a more private life.’ The Princess, who’d hoped to ‘give the people of Britain light in their dark tunnels,’ paradoxically died in one of her own when freelance journalists shadowed, stalked and captured her last photograph to sell to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. Contributor MATTHEW FLACKS chats with Peter Jukes about the UK Phone Hacking Scandal, the $535 million News Corp shelled out to the 718 victims of its pranks, and about the future of news, information and civility in his seminal new book, Beyond Contempt.

    Charlatan Magazine

    Editorial Mission

    In 17th century France a man named Tabarin performed for the Royal Court. He sang, danced, told jokes and with stories otherwise improvised his role as the first and most famous Parisian Charlatan. Though he performed exclusively for the House of Bourbon by day, it was by night that he took to the streets: digesting what he’d learned and seen at Court with the clever disguise of street performance. While political gatherings were considered unlawful in the Middle Ages, his audiences are believed by historians to be among the “Whispers to the French Revolution.”

    Charlatan Magazine was conceived during the 2008 election year as both a reaction and response to the State of California’s Proposition 8. Herein Church, State, and Law collided in what is described as the only instance in US history where civil and pre-existing rights were taken away from a specific and targeted minority. But when a consortium of Citizen Journalists determined to merge current events with philosophical commentary on business, society, politics, religion and style, they effectively fused the chasm between liberal and conservative ideals into a canon of one news source.

    Thus, it is the sole and singular mission of Charlatan Magazine to introduce the Ladies and Gentlemen of the world: to chronicle their history, connect their concerns, indemnify their customs and to direct, enlighten and endow the approach to Politics as Lifestyle.
