TOPIC: Rolf in the news again

Rolf in the news again 4 Weeks ago  
Rolf Harris film about child sex predators removed from Belfast charity shop

"Warning - some readers my find the content of this article distressing"



Needless to say, it refers to his conviction for assaulting a 7/8 year-old without saying that that conviction was overturned on appeal.

He was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison following a string of sick sex attacks on young girls.


How many more times do they need to be told? There were no young girls! Well, there was one young girl but her story was a crock of sh*t and his conviction was overturned in November 2017.

The Manchester Evening News still has this erroneous headline:

The youngest victim of Rolf Harris has died - she was seven when he attacked her at a children's disco

'I'm not saying he's got blood on his hands or suppose he cares one jot about her passing but he should be aware of the grim legacy he left her to cope with'

He didn't attack her. He never even met the woman. There was no grim legacy. I can't get my head around how 'journalists' get away with this sort of thing.

That's outrageous. I see that that quote is from her brother, Paul Wild, the same person who said he had kept his sister's childhood photo in case it might one day prove "useful" (very odd reason for keeping a loved one's photo, IMO), saying he was going to send it to Rolf (source). If you really believed someone was a paedophile who had abused your sister why on earth would you give them the "pleasure" of a photo of her as a child?!

Belfast Live is owned by Reach plc who earlier this year renewed its commitment to an anti-fake news scheme called "The Trust Project". What a joke.

Is there a way to call them dickheads politely?

Re:Rolf in the news again 2 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
Now another report referring to his conviction for molesting an 8-year-old that fails to say it was overturned on appeal.

Disgraced paedophile Rolf Harris, 89, is seen using a walking stick as he delivers paintings to neighbours near his Berkshire home

To get these momentous photos of an elderly man using a walking stick there must either be paparazzi following him, or a member of the public has taken the photos and sold them to the press.

The comments are being moderated in advance, as they always are for anything to do with Rolf Harris. Most of the supportive comments won't be published or will be held back until interest in the article has waned.

These dingbats really believe that he abused little children. Some of the comments are appalling.

The Sun has this non-story as well.
