Murdoch papers under serious ethical pressure..

Read this story.

Rather worrying if this is anywhere near true:

“Former Sunday Times editor Andrew Neil described the story last night as “one of the most significant media stories of modern times”. “It suggests that rather than being a one-off journalist or rogue private investigator, it was systemic throughout the News of the World, and to a lesser extent the Sun,” he said. “Particularly in the News of the World, this was a newsroom out of control.”

It’s a story about the widespread hacking, and then pay off cover up, of mobile phones by UK newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch.

Time for some revised code of conduct training at the News of the World…and the Sun, by the sounds of it.
