Murdoch closes The News of the World



I don't know how closely the rest of the world has followed the NOTW phone hacking scandal, but it has resulted in the closure of a newspaper which has been around for nearly 170 years.

How has Rebekah Wade kept her job??

Does he think this will help his cause with the BSkyB takeover?

How long until we see The Sun on Sunday?

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

Sun on Sunday will happen.

The only people I feel sorry for are the ones who weren't involved in this crap, yet are being thrown out a job due to what went down. The ones who should be made to pay, will more than likely not get the right punishment.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

He only did it for the Cameron approve of the Bsky thing.
Also The Sun surely will be published also on sudays from now on so no problems for him.
The only loser here is Coulson, hope he finishes jailed but I doubt it.

Apparently Rebekah Wade was jeered as she made the announcement to NOTW staff and the current editor told her to leave the building.

David Cameron must be thrilled at this. He was starting to get questioned about Andy Coulson again

And the 200 journalists who have been made redundant.

According to The Guardian Coulson will be arrested tomorrow - maybe to do with the Tommy Sheridan case. God I hope Sheridan isn't released over this.

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

Obviously an attempt to forestall further investigation into the (Evil) Murdoch Empire. Good riddance to the rag. Shame for the employees, many of whom are no doubt innocent. If Wade isn't sacked & investigated, we'll just have to arrange a public lynching.

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

They're just a bunch of gutter journalists anyways?

I for one am glad that it is being shut down.

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

They should have rigged Murdoch's phones a long time ago.

Tommy Sheridan isn't a victim, he's an arsehole.

I saw some speculation on twitter that it was James Murdoch she caught in bed with her 1st husband (Grant from Eastenders)

edit: (allegedly)

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

Murdochs not doing themselves any favours. Don't think they've judged the feeling against them very well. Don't think this will go away.
