Interesting drama. Like most papers, I never read NOTW except for the headlines but still a shame to see it go. I'm more worried about what this scandal will do to my BSkyB shares.

Um.

Phone-hacking whistle-blower found dead
http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/europe...are/index.html

One of the first journalists to go on the record and allege phone hacking at News of the World was found dead Monday, the British Press Association said.

Sean Hoare, a former News of the World employee who said Andy Coulson "encouraged" phone-hacking, "was discovered at his home in Watford, Hertfordshire, after concerns were raised about his whereabouts," the press association said.

"The death is being treated as 'unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious,' " the report quoted Hertfordshire police as saying.

The Guardian reported that Hoare had recently injured his nose and his foot in an accident. It was unclear whether those injuries were linked to his death.

Hoare had publicly accused News of the World of phone-hacking and using "pinging" -- a method of tracking someone's cell phone using technology that only police and security officials could access -- according to the New York Times.

Hoare was one of the few sources who allowed his name to be used when speaking to the Times last year for an investigative report about allegations of phone-hacking by the British tabloid.

In his remarks, he specifically accused Andy Coulson -- former editor of News of the World, who went on to become Prime Minister David Cameron's communications director -- of wrongdoing.

It is a fine line, but the difference will probably be the reason for years of lawsuits.

And while I picked on the Grauniad I was poking fun at the hypocrisy of the leftist press in general. When the Climategate emails came out the New York Times huffed that because the emails were private and ''illegally obtained'', the New York Times would not stoop so low as to publish them.
Exactly one year later when Wikileaks released the US government cables, the New York Times was crowing that these documents were in the public interest and the paper would begin publishing them immediately.

Perhaps you would care to elaborate on why the NYT should turn a blind eye to Climategate emails, but salivate over publishing Wikileaks emails. No, of course you don't care to, you wouldn't know where to start.

Oh wait, Assange had the stated goal of bringing down the US - Wikileaks must therefore be encouraged, while Climategate was harmful to the loony left and must therefore be swept under the carpet.

Some guy managed to get in and approached Rupert Murdoch with what looked like some white substance. JM leapt up to protect his dad, but Mrs M got there first, clocked him one and promptly fell off her chair.

Hey there, Rip Van Winkle. What woke you up?

But drugs and alcohol seem to be the main suspects so far.

obviously even okay contract killers will be virtually untraceable. that guy knew quite a lot and seemed to open up more and more. he had to go.

the hearings have been pretty much what i expected. they saw nothing, suspected nothing and knew nothing, what a surprise.

Murder is usually recognizable, even if the perpetrator is not traced, which is why I think it is doubtful at this time.

Makes you wonder how such a successful businessman could be so in the dark about his businesses, doesn't it?

So far the only successful punch thrown in the hearings was by the old guy's wife.
