Not showing any favouritism at all. I will start with The Times. 1

:01:28.:01:36.

million stolen bank cards for sale. Proper journalism at work!

:01:37.:01:42.

Apparently 100,000 Britons on this site, you can buy their details.

:01:43.:01:49.

They went in and they found all the details. What is particularly

:01:50.:01:53.

surprising is, this is not on the dark web, it is only normal

:01:54.:01:59.

internet. It looks like a kind of consumer website. So, it is an

:02:00.:02:06.

interesting thing, around ?27 billion a year is lost on this kind

:02:07.:02:09.

of online fraud. It is an increasing problem. It is bad!

:02:10.:02:17.

It is staggering how easy it is to do. A fantastic piece of journalism

:02:18.:02:24.

by the Times. They went to the site which has a help desk. It seems to

:02:25.:02:29.

be legitimate and typed in the details and got her debit card

:02:30.:02:34.

number and security code and expiry date, everything you need to make

:02:35.:02:38.

the payments online. I think people sitting round the breakfast table on

:02:39.:02:41.

Saturday morning will be staggered how easy it is. People think it will

:02:42.:02:45.

never happen to them. Everyone thinks it will never happen to them

:02:46.:02:49.

until it does and you have to be careful about your password. This

:02:50.:02:51.

investigation says that loads of people use their mother's maiden

:02:52.:02:57.

name. We know that as one of the key questions that you ask and so, those

:02:58.:03:01.

details are conveniently on the site. I think the lesson to all of

:03:02.:03:06.

us, is use complicated passwords, don't use things which are obvious

:03:07.:03:10.

and don't use things which people can find on social media like your

:03:11.:03:14.

birth date on the names of your kids or the name of your cat. I did a

:03:15.:03:19.

really interesting thing about fraud we went on a hacker course to become

:03:20.:03:23.

hackers and it was very, very easy to hack into other people's stuff by

:03:24.:03:27.

looking at their Facebook accounts. It is incredible what people find

:03:28.:03:33.

out about you online. Let's look at The Telegraph. Health watchdog will

:03:34.:03:40.

troll social media for anythingtive comments about hospitals.

:03:41.:03:51.

Is this really what they need to do? People don't know how good their

:03:52.:03:55.

local Health Services are. They have started to bring in rating systems

:03:56.:03:58.

online, but it is based on a couple of reviews. So I think, it is

:03:59.:04:03.

well-intentioned to try and get other bits of information out there

:04:04.:04:07.

from people's Facebook and other ways, but the question people wonder

:04:08.:04:11.

is, is that going to give you a great accurate picture? Do people go

:04:12.:04:17.

on Facebook and moan about their local NHS service? Ben, you're

:04:18.:04:23.

wrong. At the moment, there are Ofsted-style ratings and inspections

:04:24.:04:25.

where people go into hospitals and have a look at it. They are cutting

:04:26.:04:28.

the number of inspections, they are bringing it down by 25% and instead,

:04:29.:04:33.

they're going to go and trawl social media to see if people are moaning

:04:34.:04:37.

about things. This is a disguise for the fact that actually, the quality

:04:38.:04:42.

Care Commission are cutting back on inspections spectacularly and in the

:04:43.:04:49.

wake of Morcambe Bay that's something we should be worried about

:04:50.:04:55.

and the Facebook thing is a gimmick! She can be quite forthright, but we

:04:56.:05:00.

encourage that. I will humbly put forward the idea that going to

:05:01.:05:04.

different data sources and what people are saying outside the

:05:05.:05:08.

official inspectorate whenever he does up their ties isn't a bad thing

:05:09.:05:14.

even if it is not done properly. A 25% cut in the inspections is not

:05:15.:05:17.

good. They have got to bridge that gap in some way. Facebook won't

:05:18.:05:23.

help. Shall we look at the FT? Cameron dilutes sugar tax plan with

:05:24.:05:28.

levy threat if food producers fail to act. We have been waiting forever

:05:29.:05:33.

to have this obesity strategy published and whether or not there

:05:34.:05:36.

will be a sugar tax of any sort? Jamie Oliver writing in the Sunday

:05:37.:05:43.

Times last week which has been re-launched on Sunday, he wrote

:05:44.:05:48.

about and he was on the BBC and Andrew Marr talking about how he was

:05:49.:05:53.

going to go Ninja and he was furious that he thought that Cameron was

:05:54.:05:58.

backing out of the sugar tax and what the FT is telling us tomorrow,

:05:59.:06:02.

implies that's the case. He is going to make them, he says, Coca-Cola

:06:03.:06:08.

will make a modest cut to the sugar content of their product. Oh well

:06:09.:06:15.

done! Is there a better way to go, to go voluntarily and you take them

:06:16.:06:19.

with you? The idea that Cameron is ditching the idea that he backed

:06:20.:06:23.

previously is misleading because he was always against a sugar tax. He

:06:24.:06:28.

said, "I am against taxation as a Tory." He said a month ago, I will

:06:29.:06:33.

consider it, but he is always one for trying to use this as a way to

:06:34.:06:37.

strong arm companies to do these measures. What you mean Ben is

:06:38.:06:42.

Eleanor you are wrong. I think you're right that Cameron is trying

:06:43.:06:46.

to wriggle out of this. We have got a massive obesity problem. One in

:06:47.:06:51.

three children are obese. There is a massive problem with fizzy drinks

:06:52.:06:56.

and sugary snackses a parent I really want something to be done

:06:57.:06:59.

about this. They have done it with salt. They have reduced the amount

:07:00.:07:04.

of salt in products, but a big stick saying if you don't do this in a

:07:05.:07:11.

serious way, we will come after you. There is a tussle about whether the

:07:12.:07:17.

Government should hammer advertisers for advertising during any time

:07:18.:07:21.

before 9pm or not. The Culture Secretary is one side and the Health

:07:22.:07:24.

Secretary is on another. It is worth watching that. I thought we hadn't

:07:25.:07:31.

much time, but I think we're OK. Daily Mail, police, "We won't name

:07:32.:07:37.

fugitives. Suspected killers and rapists are on the run." You guess

:07:38.:07:41.

it is because of Human Rights? It sends alarm bells flashing in The

:07:42.:07:46.

Daily Mail hall. It will infuriate families across the country if they

:07:47.:07:50.

think their children, their relatives are at a threat from

:07:51.:07:54.

people who the police are refusing to name. They do name and put out

:07:55.:07:58.

the photos when dangerous people are on the loose, clearly some suspects

:07:59.:08:03.

are named. This is to say they won't release the name of people because

:08:04.:08:09.

of data protection, it is classic Daily Mail because Data Protection

:08:10.:08:15.

Act send them into a frenzy. The police have sometimes used data

:08:16.:08:18.

protection and maybe they have been wrong. They asked for freedom

:08:19.:08:24.

information requests from 45 police forces asking who is on your wanted

:08:25.:08:28.

list? This is rapist, murderers and 21 forces said they wouldn't release

:08:29.:08:32.

the details on the grounds of data protection and the privacy grounds

:08:33.:08:35.

in the Human Rights Act. People might not always like this, but even

:08:36.:08:40.

criminals have Human Rights. Well, people are meant to be considered

:08:41.:08:44.

innocent until proven guilty. But even when they are in prison, they

:08:45.:08:49.

still have Human Rights? They do, Martine. I'm making the point,

:08:50.:08:54.

people may not like it. It is your children who are possibly at risk.

:08:55.:09:01.

Good Telegraph point! Lets look at the Independent. A sad

:09:02.:09:06.

day. While we can. RIP. No more dead tree edition. Well, we can still

:09:07.:09:13.

feature the front page even when you go online. Will you? Remorseless

:09:14.:09:26.

Assad vows re-take Syria? There are so many different people at play. It

:09:27.:09:30.

is impossible to see how they can get around the table. You have

:09:31.:09:36.

western forces, Isil and Assad. If he is not and Russians, obviously,

:09:37.:09:40.

if he is not playing ball with the peace process, it is impossible to

:09:41.:09:44.

see how they can come to any kind of settlement and it is hours before

:09:45.:09:47.

the rest of the guys were saying, "OK, we're ready to hold fire. He is

:09:48.:09:52.

saying, I'll do whatever it takes: " At lunch time, they said the masses

:09:53.:09:56.

of nations were saying, there was going to be a ceasefire and Assad

:09:57.:09:59.

goes, "It makes no sense for us to give up any part of Syria. We want

:10:00.:10:03.

the whole lot backment we will take a long time. We will incur a heavy

:10:04.:10:09.

price." Anyone who thinks there is a solution in Syria any time soon is

:10:10.:10:14.

barking up the wrong tree. But it seems that maybe the Americans said

:10:15.:10:20.

to President Putin, you know, we'll resort to Plan B and things will get

:10:21.:10:25.

tougher if you don't agree to the seization, there could be all things

:10:26.:10:29.

going around behind the scenes? The fact that Assad said this, in

:10:30.:10:34.

vehement terms, it doesn't look good for the ceasefire. He invited

:10:35.:10:39.

journalists into the palace to brief them on this. They have got Islamic

:10:40.:10:43.

State to deal with. Who weren't part of the plan. Staying with the

:10:44.:10:47.

Independent while we have got you here. Calais refugees terrorised by

:10:48.:11:00.

armed far-right militia. People being hand clufd and stripped naked.

:11:01.:11:05.

These people couldn't be anymore vulnerable before these reports.

:11:06.:11:13.

They have left their homes. Children, orphaned, you cannot

:11:14.:11:16.

imagine anymore vulnerable people. It is horrific to see and it is

:11:17.:11:22.

common. They have got ten different testimonies being reported. This

:11:23.:11:25.

does seem like it is a proper problem. It is vague this report

:11:26.:11:29.

about exactly who the far-right fa Englishias are. It says they are

:11:30.:11:35.

being taken off and awful things are happening to them. It is

:11:36.:11:40.

unsatisfying for me that they haven't got enough detail on who is

:11:41.:11:45.

doing it. They seem to be a sitting target. If you think of the stoking

:11:46.:11:50.

of the far-right going on in France and Europe, it is not too surprising

:11:51.:11:56.

that the Calais Jungle has become a magnet for the vigilantes or people

:11:57.:11:59.

who are anti-migrant and I think it is really sad. Poor people. It comes

:12:00.:12:02.

on the back of the week that David Cameron warned this is what is going

:12:03.:12:06.

to come to Britain if we go for Brexit, that was the front page of

:12:07.:12:09.

the Telegraph on Monday. But we don't believe that for a second.

:12:10.:12:13.

David Cameron is claiming it, whether we believe it or not. It is

:12:14.:12:19.

widely discredited. But the PM is sticking to his line.

:12:20.:12:25.

It is sad about the Independent. Let's talk about the Independent and

:12:26.:12:29.

the I because we know that the Independent and the Independent on

:12:30.:12:34.

Sunday going online. The I has a different fate ahead of it, I think.

:12:35.:12:38.

The reports it will be sold and some people from the Independent will go

:12:39.:12:44.

on supplying copy to it. The I sells 270,000 copies which is a lot. The

:12:45.:12:49.

Independent, which is only 50 pence, the Independent, only sells between

:12:50.:12:54.

30 and 50,000, that's why it is going online, but what I don't

:12:55.:12:57.

understand is how they are going to keep up a full newspaper staff to

:12:58.:13:01.

keep it online when they haven't got any online advertising and there is

:13:02.:13:05.

a problem hitting many newspaper groups at the moment and the

:13:06.:13:10.

Guardian said they had big losses and the big online experiment isn't

:13:11.:13:15.

working. We had a pay war so we make money from our subscribers on our

:13:16.:13:19.

pay wall, but no one has really cracked this. There is a massive

:13:20.:13:26.

slump in advertising across the press is hitting everyone, but there

:13:27.:13:32.

are different ways around this, and at News UK, we are investing heavily

:13:33.:13:37.

in the newspapers. We are just about to re-launch a magazine. There is

:13:38.:13:39.

money and investment going into the titles and that's the opposite.

:13:40.:13:46.

Here on the I, it says free from party political bias and five years

:13:47.:13:50.

young. How long that will continue on who decides to buy it? There are

:13:51.:13:56.

two things that are going to be in the midst. It is free and impartial

:13:57.:14:00.

compared to some of the papers, but it won't have the same impact online

:14:01.:14:04.

as it will in newspapers around Westminster all the MPs read the

:14:05.:14:07.

front pages and the second one is the staff, not all of them are going

:14:08.:14:14.

to be able to stay Let's hope they find a way to stay. We will keep

:14:15.:14:17.

looking at what you're doing on the Papers. We look at buzz feed. That's

:14:18.:14:23.

it from the papers this hour. Ben survived! He will be back with

:14:24.:14:29.

Eleanor at 11.30pm. You can cope with us, you can cope

:14:30.:14:33.

with anything. Coming up next, it is Sportsday.
