The latest revelation from the evil empire involves the mother of Sarah Payne, a murdered British child. The NOTW helped her campaign for a British equivalent of Jessica's Law. They even had her write a column in praise of them in the final closedown edition. Now it emerges that they had hacked the phone they gave her at the start.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!

The main thing that pleases me about this story is not whether or not Rupert Murdoch and his family will be toppled, but that he has been exposed to broad day light for the entire international community to see. Not enough people are even aware of where their news comes from or how it is produced - they just read it.
The key to Murdoch's power has always been people not knowing who he is,what he does, or how far the reach of his power goes (corporations, government, foreign interests and investment, etc.). Now everyone has their eyes on him. I am enjoying how uncomfortable that must be.
This man and his conglomerate are a major threat to the free press and the way democracies disseminate information to the public.
