    The British Press will go to great lengths to get a story while most of the Irish press would do the same to ignore one.

    LOL.

    The British Press ran scared of this story though. At the time this thread was started, only the Guardian was touching it.

    The closing ranks/press solidarity to also being up to there necks in it ratio would be interesting no doubt.

    Course Murdoch owns nearly everything bar the Guardian and Telegraph and the latter had their own reasons for keeping quite.

    Thanks. The Spectator and the Guardian were the only papers saying anything on this last September, when this thread started. Twitter was the main source.

    Seems they were at it here as well.

    This is why we should not allow journalists to have an absolute right to refuse to disclose sources. They may be trying to protect the source or they may be covering up evidence of their own criminal activity.

    Jesus- Baron you are on another thread pigheadedly lecturing people on the necessary distance between judiciary and legislature and here you are on another thread casually suggesting that journalists shouldn't have the right to protect confidential sources.

    Do you not see a slight dissonance in the two positions?
    Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.

    There is a growing consensus within the company that Rebekah Brooks, the chief executive of News International and onetime editor who has become the focus of much of the outrage over the hacking, will be forced out of her job, according to people with knowledge of discussions inside News Corporation.

    So far the harm has been limited to the company’s reputation. The News Corporation does not yet face heavy financial losses, even as the advertiser boycott of The News of the World grows.

    “It feels like a lot more noise than substance,” [media analyst David Bank] said, noting how little the newspapers contributed to the company’s bottom line. The News of the World is just a piece of News International’s large footprint in Britain.

    Over all, revenue from the publishing division of News Corporation accounted for only 17 percent of its revenue in the last nine months. In that time, cable network programming accounted for 61 percent, and film, which includes the 20th Century Fox studio, was 20 percent.

    This week, the [Murdoch-owned] New York Post was sued for libel by the hotel maid who has accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund chief, of sexual assault. In its coverage of the case, The Post has called the maid a prostitute.

    Dirty Digger Murdoch has been forced to close the NOTW on foot of this scandal, losing a title that was a major cash cow for him. The final edition will be published this Sunday, with revenues from it supposedly going to 'charity'. All to secure outright ownership of BSkyB.

    The Guardian Media Group can expect to be at the receiving end of a permanent vendetta from Nudes International. I'm sure they can deal with it.

    "It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts."

    All the journalists are hyperventilating on twitter

    Someone made a good point.

    Why is Brooks so important that Murdock would rather sink the paper then cut her loose?

    Is Paul 'Garda Sources' Williams out of a job now? It's an ill wind that blows nobody good...

    I do feel a little sorry for the hacks about to lose their jobs now the NOTW is to close. I'm sure there's a lot more scandal they can dish out on their former bosses...

    Will we see the Sunday Sun as a replacement?

    Giving the public something to be outraged about while Murdoch's takeover of BSkyB goes ahead? Classic bait and switch.
