Moseley’s Nazi orgy revealed by shrewd nature of News of the World (Insight/Analysis)


This one here on Max Moseley caught in a Nazi orgy was the special one. Forget he is the FIA boss, forget he is 67. It’s him being the son of ex- fascist leader Sir Oswald that created the entire buzz, especially after Max had claimed over years to being far away from his father’s links to Nazism.

 

Being the fierce tabloid that News of the World is, they didn’t even hesitate to put up videos of Moseley during the orgy. Such was their fierce determination to stick with the story, that they even fought off a court action by Moseley only to come out on top and win the order to put the tapes back on their website. They were in fact so proud of this story that Paul Nicholas from News of the World, didn’t hesitate to point it out as an example of good journalism when speaking to young journalism students at a University. Obviously he had good reason to gush about it, since the story had sparked off major sensation in the Formula 1 circuit with three time world champion Sir Jackie Stewart demanding Moseley’s immediate resignation along with a number of top teams asking for the same thing.

 

What was even better was that, the story and the follow ups went online on the website immediately and that it was covered from numerous angles. Obviously the fact that Moseley was defending his act as a personal matter was included but his claims of the Nazi theme being accidental was slashed to bits by the quick appearance on the website of an interview with one of the prostitutes part of the orgy who confirmed the theme was Moseley’s idea in the first place. The coverage literally beat down Moseley’s reputation from all sides and it was all due to the fact that the articles went up one after another on the website. The speed with which the news was updated was what did the trick, had News of the World just depended on printing the news on paper, it may have allowed Moseley even more time to take legal action and block their publishing of this matter. But the online nature of the publishing did the trick.
