    A new low for the vile rag, and surely one that should see serious criminal charges following in its wake.

    So they pay out all the civil cases and get a big fat prosecution on top. Like it.

    I can see a huge range of potential charges over this, starting from perverting the course of justice...

    God, I hope so. The arrogance and general hatefulness to behave like this is simply breathtaking. Just when you think News International can't stoop any lower they somehow manage to prove you wrong. Not that any newspaper – tabloid or otherwise – behaves a great deal better, of course...

    Mucky, mucky business. I hope that someone gets dragged through the streets for this one.

    This is being discussed on the andy coulson thread at the moment. My feeling is there are to many vested interests of powerful (rich) people that nothing serious will come of much of this. The Police tried to cover it up last time around and the politicians are staying very quiet.

    There was a story in Private Eye recently that said Murdoch had planned to sack Rebekah Brooks but was then persuaded out of it. I bet her arse is out of there now though.

    I'm a cynic at the best of times and have to say I wasn't terribly surprised when I saw the headline. But when I read that they'd deleted messages to make room for more I think I actually looked like a goldfish for a minute. I can't believe that even the coldest, most-cynical, money-grabbing tabloid journalist would not maybe think twice about that. Fucking unbelievable :mad:

    i find it interesting how a human being might come to this. did they think what they were doing was right? or did they just not care? do they have some kind of twisted morality/culture that keeps them doing these things, like the way soldiers who commit atrocities justify their actions to themselves?

    Disgusting.

    Why they are being allowed to acquire Sky is really quite beyond me.

    IME, media types think a bit different to the rest of us, the most important thing is they get their story with their picture next to it. Everything else is secondary.

    No, none at all.

    this will have repercussions. how serious remains to be seen, but it isn't really something that can be hushed up or swept under the carpet is it?

    brooks will be out in the next few days, i reckon. and there has to be criminal charges from this.

    Well, they do work for the News of the World. So I guess the answer would be yes.

    Just. Scum.

    People will still by the NoTW despite the scandal - how else will they get the juicy gossip on the latest rapes and murders?
