Default Indict Rupert Murdoch

Given the news today shouldn't Rupert Murdoch and his son James, owners of News International be indicted for the crime of perverting the course of justice over the phone hacking of Milly Dowler's mobile phone whilst she was missing and during a police investigation.

It is reported that 2 text's to her phone were deleted by people employed by News International.

I understand that perverting the course of justice carries a possible sentence of life imprisonment in the UK.

Shocker! Left wing poster more outraged at Rupert Murdoch than at Glenn Mulcaire(who as far as I know actually did the hacking).

What criminal goings on !What a bunch of bosses!---never heard the like---never! It wasn't just hacking Millie Dowler's phone but it appears that the families of service men and women who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan may have been hacked too.

The man/woman at the top has to take responsibility. The buck stops with him/her. Glen Mulcaire should take his punsihment too - and his boss - whatshername. They are all tainted with this. It is shameful beyond words.

Apparently Murdoch would rather detonate one of his biggest selling sunday titles than punish Rebbeca Brooks, or "Slapper" as the Eye likes to call her after her alleged Kemp-beating antics.

Yes - it's a shame so many innnocent people will lose their jobs when this 'lady' walks free from her responsibilities. However - I wonder if - after this 'detonation' a 'new' Sunday rag will rise from the ashes?

Hi Tom,

I think that Murdoch is hoping that by offering up the NOTW as a sacrifice he will still be able to get his grubby little hands on the real prize, namely, the total ownership and control of BskyB. No doubt he will launch a "New" Sunday paper, you know, the same old rag under a new name. As for Ms Brooks, I wonder just what dirty secrets she may have acquired on the Murdochs, father and son, during her unparalleled rise from secretary to the youngest ever editor of a national British newspaper???

Best wishes,
Zodiac.

But it is OK, as she is the one who will lead the internal investigation. Which is like letting Whinnie the Pooh work out who is responsible for the honey being eaten.

Which is what much of this scandal is about. Media outlets baying for a competitors blood and political attacks by left leaning parties trying to clip the wings of Murdoch and his empire.

The Dowler phone hacking was a scandal. Hopefully some journalists will be imprisoned for it. But stop using Milly Dowler as a reason to condemn Murdoch. Much of the "outrage" is sickening, political and smacks of opportunism.

I suspect many of the folk jumping on the bandwagon dont give two hoots about the Dowler investigation or her family.
