The Daily Express is a daily national middle market tabloid newspaper in the United Kingdom. It is the flagship title of Express Newspapers, a subsidiary of Northern & Shell (itself wholly owned by Richard Desmond). In July 2011 it had an average daily circulation of 625,952.
Express Newspapers currently also publishes the Sunday Express (launched in 1918), Daily Star and Daily Star Sunday.
John Bodkin Adams
Suspected serial killer Dr John Bodkin Adams was arrested in 1956 suspected of murdering up to 400 of his wealthy patients in Eastbourne, England. The press, egged on by police leaks, unanimously declared Adams guilty, except for Percy Hoskins, chief crime reporter for the Express. Hoskins was adamant that Adams was merely a naive doctor prosecuted by an overzealous detective, Herbert Hannam, who Hoskins disliked from previous cases. The Express, under Hoskins's direction, was therefore the only major paper to defend Adams, causing Lord Beaverbrook to frequently question Hoskins's stance on the matter. Adams was tried for the murder of Edith Alice Morrell in 1957 and found not guilty (a second count was withdrawn controversially). After the case a jubilant Beaverbrook phoned Hoskins and said: "Two people were acquitted today" – meaning Hoskins as well. The Express then carried an exclusive interview with Adams, who Hoskins interviewed for two weeks after the trial in a safe house away from other newspapers. According to archives released in 2003, Adams was thought by police to have killed 163 patients.
In the second half of 2007 the Daily Express gave a large amount of coverage to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. From 3 August 2007, the Express dedicated at least part of the next 100 front pages to Madeleine in a run that lasted until 10 November 2007. Of the 100, 82 of these were the main headline (often stylised by "MADELEINE" in red block capitals, plus a picture of the child).
Though the family initially said that some journalists may have "overstepped their mark" they acknowledged the benefits in keeping the case in the public eye, but argued that the coverage needed to be toned down since daily headlines are not necessarily helpful. However, in March 2008, the McCanns launched a libel suit against the Daily Express and its sister newspaper, the Daily Star, as well as their Sunday equivalents, following the newspapers' coverage of the case. The action concerned more than 100 stories across the four newspapers, which accused the McCanns of causing their daughter's death and covering it up. One immediate consequence of the action was that Express Newspapers pulled all references to Madeleine from its websites.
In a settlement reached at the High Court of Justice, the newspapers agreed to run a front-page apology to the McCanns on 19 March 2008, publish another apology on the front pages of the Sunday editions of 23 March and make a statement of apology at the High Court. The newspapers also agreed to pay costs and substantial damages, which the McCanns said they would use to fund the search for their daughter.
Guardian media commentator Roy Greenslade said it was "unprecedented" for four major newspapers to offer front-page apologies, but also said that it was more than warranted given that the papers had committed "a substantial libel" that shamed the entire British press. Craig Silverman of Regret the Error argued that given how many of the stories appeared on the front page, anything less than a front page apology would have been "unacceptable."
In its apology, the Express stated that "a number of articles in the newspaper have suggested that the couple caused the death of their missing daughter Madeleine and then covered it up. We acknowledge that there is no evidence whatsoever to support this theory and that Kate and Gerry are completely innocent of any involvement in their daughter's disappearance." This was followed in October by an apology and payout (forwarded to the fund again) to a group who had become known as the "Tapas Seven" in relation to the case.
Diana, Princess of Wales
The Daily Express has a reputation for consistently printing conspiracy theories about the death of Diana, Princess of Wales as front page news, earning it the nickname the Daily Ex-Princess; this has been satirised in Private Eye, the newspaper being labelled the Diana Express or the Di'ly Express, and has been attributed to Desmond's close friendship with regular Eye target Mohamed Fayed.
For a long period in 2006 and 2007, these front-page stories would consistently appear on Mondays; this trend ceased only when the paper focused instead on the Madeleine McCann story (see below). Even on 7 July 2006, the anniversary of the London bombings (used by most other newspapers to publish commemorations) the front page was given over to Diana. This tendency was also mocked on Have I Got News for You when on 6 November 2006, the day other papers reported the death sentence given to Saddam Hussein on their front pages, the Express led with “SPIES COVER UP DIANA 'MURDER'”. According to The Independent "The Diana stories appear on Mondays because Sunday is often a quiet day." In February and March 2010 the paper returned to featuring Diana stories on the front page on Mondays.

OF IMMACULATE DECEPTION
1. immaculate deception
When newly-weds give birth to their first born in less than nine months.
Bob and Tanya just had a kid, but they've only been married eight months.
It sounds like a case of immaculate deception to me.
2. Immaculate deception
Immaculate deception occurs when a woman or girl pleads that she is both virginal and pregnant at the same time. She is so skilled in the art of deception that she not only convinces her boyfriend or husband that this is a miracle that has occurred but then somehow get a religious cult of billions of people to believe her lie and then to worship her and her bustard child.
a woman or girl witness for the prosecution says that she has been
penetrated vaginally (raped) on several occasions, but the forensic
evidence shows that she is still intact hymenally.
police investigating officer says to the crown's prosecuting barrister:
it's incredible that she's still a virgin. Should we still prosecute to
massage our figures or hail the miracle?
In American football, "the Holy Roller" (known as "the Immaculate Deception" by San Diego Chargers
fans) is the nickname given to a controversial game-winning play by the Oakland Raiders against the San Diego Chargers on September 10, 1978, at San Diego Stadium (now Qualcomm Stadium) in San Diego, California. It was officially ruled as a forward fumble that was recovered by Raiders tight end Dave Casper in the end zone for a touchdown, ultimately giving Oakland the 21–20 win. However, there have been differing interpretations of how this play should have actually been ruled, and it has remained a controversial play for fans of both teams involved.
With 10 seconds left in the game, the Raiders had possession of the ball at the Chargers' 14-yard line, trailing 20-14. Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler took the snap and found himself about to be sacked by Chargers linebacker Woodrow Lowe on the 24-yard line. Stabler fumbled the ball forward, and it rolled towards the Chargers goal line. Raiders running back Pete Banaszak appeared to try to recover the ball on the 12-yard line, but could not keep his footing, and pitched the ball with both hands even closer to the end zone. Raiders tight end Dave Casper was the next player to reach the ball but he also evidently could not get a handle on it. He batted and kicked the ball into the end zone, where he fell on it for the game-tying touchdown as time ran out. With the ensuing extra point by placekicker Errol Mann, the Raiders won 21-20.
During the play, the game officials ruled that Banaszak and Casper's actions were legal because it was impossible to determine if they intentionally batted the ball forward, which would have been ruled a penalty. The National Football League (NFL) also supported referee Jerry Markbreit's call that Stabler fumbled the ball instead of throwing a forward pass.
However, Stabler's fumble was deliberate. "I fumbled it on purpose,” he said after the game. “Yes, I was trying to fumble.” Banaszak and Casper also admitted that they deliberately batted the ball towards the end zone.
The San Diego Chicken was performing at this game. After Dave Casper recovered the winning touchdown in the end zone, the Chicken fell on the ground and lay motionless as though he'd been shot and killed.
In response to the Holy Roller, the league passed new rules in the offseason, restricting fumble recoveries by the offense. If a player fumbles after the two-minute warning in a half, or on fourth down at any time during the game, only the fumbling player can recover and advance the ball. If that player's teammate recovers the ball during those situations, it is placed back at the spot of the fumble.
The ball, flipped forward, is loose! A wild scramble, two seconds on the clock...Casper grabbing the ball...it is ruled a fumble...Casper has recovered in the end zone! The Oakland Raiders have scored on the most zany, unbelievable, absolutely impossible dream of a play! Madden is on the field. He wants to know if it's real. They said yes, get your big butt out of here! He does! There's nothing real in the world anymore! The Raiders have won the football game! The Chargers....they don't believe it. Fifty-two thousand people minus a few lonely Raider fans are stunned. This one will be relived forever!
—Bill King, calling the play on KGO-AM
A battle has been raging on this planet for thousands of years. The battle for control of the minds and wills of humanity. Many have been taught that it is a battle between God's angels and Satan's demons. The truth of the matter is something much more insidious.
A conspiracy of cosmic proportions has been orchestrated against the inhabitants of this planet by an alien influence which is so deceptive, elusive, cunning and evil that even the most brilliant minds have failed to detect its presence. Over the past fifty years, technological advances by "ungodly" scientists have caused the alien presence to step up its plans for the human race. In so doing, the veil of deception has begun to fall away and the truth has finally been exposed.
The History of Man
The best place to start is at the beginning. The Bible tells us that in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. This is not at all what happened. The matter which makes up the universe was never created. It has always existed and will always continue to exist in one form or another. There is no God who created everything from nothing, but there are life forms which would have you believe that they are the messengers of that God. The earth was formed as a result of the naturally occurring forces which have always been and will always be. Life on this planet was not created but evolved, just as it has done and will continue to do on billions of other planets which can support life.
The Gods "create" man
After millions of years of evolution, the ancestors of modern man were visited by an extraterrestrial race who saw in the primates that would become man, a potential for use as servants or slaves. The extraterrestrial race would later come to be known as "Elohim;" the Hebrew word for "Gods." This race of beings mixed strands of their own DNA with that of the evolving man and "created" a hybrid that had an increased intelligence capacity, a trait required by the Elohim to fulfill their agenda for us. Initially, this hybrid mutation was unable to reproduce (similar to a horse/donkey hybrid or mule) and the Elohim thought that they would be able to control the population of the mutant man by keeping man sterile. Eventually the head genetic engineer of the Elohim rebelled against the orders of his superiors and genetically engineered the ability to reproduce into the mutant man. This event is commonly called "the fall of man" by those who are ignorant of what really took place.
The ability to reproduce was not the only trait which the Elohim tried to keep from man. Genetically, the Elohim did not possess the genes which trigger aging in humans and other animals. They had genetically altered their DNA so that they did not age. When the leaders of the Elohim learned that man had been given the ability to reproduce, they feared that the rebel genetic engineer would alter their DNA to allow them to not age so they made it illegal for man to be allowed in the facilities of the Elohim. Man had been "cast out" of God's presence.
IMMACULATE DECEPTION Sunday World Nov 1, 2009 BY JIM GALLAGHER
Dialogue Ireland - Sunday World
The shocking secret life of millionaire ‘visionary’ Christina Gallagher is laid bare today in a new book, based on a series of Sunday World revelations, which lifts the lid on her scams, greed and lies. Immaculate Deception reveals for the first time how
the self-proclaimed holy woman told her most loyal supporters how she was recovering from a heart attack when in fact she had sneaked off to England for two weeks to meet a boyfriend. The book also exposes how the money-grabbing leader of the House of Prayer in Achill Island was furious when a generous American benefactor gave her “only” $800,000 when she expected $2 million.
Immaculate Deception, uncovers the extraordinary goings-on at the west of Ireland prayer centre which Gallagher has controlled with absolute power for the last 16 years. It reveals how one former manager, Chuck McNerney, quit after just five weeks when Gallagher refused to allow him even to open the mail which was often filled with cash.
She told the American man that opening the post was her “only joy”. The book reveals how a devout Catholic solicitor from England, John Beighton, raised questions in the 1990s over the finances of the House of Prayer which, he said, had no controls. Ten years before the Sunday World began publishing a series of exposés about Gallagher’s fabulous lifestyle, starting in January 2008; Beighton was asking Gallagher the same questions. He demanded to know why she was driving a luxury seven series BMW, where she had got the money to buy a fabulous home in Newport, Co. Mayo, and the £300,000 she then spent doing it up, and why the House of Prayer was covered in secret cameras and audio equipment.
