The Closure of News of the World
As a former journalist I feel for the hundreds of workers who will lose their jobs. No one should be fooled by Rupert Murdoch's move to close the company. It is a financial decision based on the potential lawsuits which would have ruined the company anyway. If Murdoch is serious about holding people to account (as he is reported as saying) then why is the person who was editor of the paper when the phone hackings took place, still in her elevated position as head of News International? Hopefully the police investigations will reveal the names of all the culprits and they will be brought to justice, even those protected by giants.
