Lord McAlpine and fact checking

Checking your facts before you Tweet or blog is still a "Chilling Effect".

Often there is no independent way of  checking facts except from other things that you find on the Internet. These "facts" may also be inaccurate so you will never be able to post an opinion as you can never be sure of your facts.

Those with power, such as McApline, will always have the resources to go after anyone that they don't like what they are saying about them regardless of whether it is true or not.

This also reminds me of the Super Injunctions brought by the likes of Wayne Giggs against reports of his affair with Big Brother star, Imogen Thomas.

If looks like that those with the surname McAlpine have a propensity for this sort to activity!
