Strong stuff! Smile I must say that Rupert and James and other primitive thinkers can only thrive in the cesspool that is the "free market". I hope Edward Bernays and Milton Friedman are turning in their graves for what their stupidity has brought to the world. Sad
There...I feel better now! Wink

I was amused that Rebekah Brooks's meeting with NOTW staff got hacked! Grin

Question that needs to be asked is: Do we really need newspapers anymore, especially tabloids?????......I find out all I need to know using other more reliable media..

I haven't actually paid money for a newspaper for at least a decade. So a "No" from me! Smile

Murdoch is being investigated in the US now. They have evidence of police officers being bribed, and accepting payouts for info to employees of Murdoch, which, under a new law, makes him also criminally responsible if it's proven in court.

Like CB, I haven't paid for a newspaper for years.
And I haven't seen the inside of a gutter press tabloid for a lot longer than that.
Most papers these days have gone so far down the celeb/X factor/reality TV route that thay will never be able to recover any kind of respectability again.
Even the "better" papers are becoming tainted with it.

His aura definitely has been broken!
He may not personally have been involved in (or known about) such actions but the busienss culture he has obviously created is proving distasteful.
Plus his shareprice has dropped about 20% in the last few days leading to a drop in his company of about 2 billion US dollars.

I fear that if he is not brought to book soon he will rise from the ashes and threaten vengeance on anyone who crossed him !

He's already shown he will do far more than merely threaten!

Expect revelations about public figures, and maybe private ones too, who have caused him problems....... maybe in his new Sunday tabloid.

Yes, and I'm sure there will always be plenty of readers drawn to his new version of printed garbage.
The only problem is that the demise(?) of the Murdoch empire, serves to draw attention away from other scurrilous and generally disreputable media activity: and yes, I include the BBC in that description because the BBC has probably done at least as much damage as the Murdoch empire when it comes to reporting or simply non-reporting of world affairs.
If Rebecca Brooks should be sacked, then so should Helen Boaden, the chief of BBC news who brazenly stonewalls or avoids the countless legitimate questions and complaints thrown at her (I suggest anyone who doubts my objectivity googles the Media Lens website and then they might see what I mean...)

Same here - I gave up buying them after I read a few stories about things I actually knew about. The stories were so wildly inaccurate I figured that things I didn't know about must be just as inaccurate - why pay for a load of made up stuff...Harry Potter books are a better investment if thats what you want.
