So the News of the World is gone. Good ridance, sorry but I've never bought it and the way it has exposed stories always makes me question it's motives and practices. The phone hacking is just the latest - the sting on the snooker player is one I remember where his defence was that he thought he was being threatened and agreed to the bet just to get out of the place. I don't know if it was right or wrong but... it's a snooker match, do I care? No.
I don't like the media so dominated by a small cabal of people in one organisation pushing their views and opinions so much. I don't buy from News Corp on that principle, we don't have Sky, never buy the Times, The Sun etc. Simple I vote with my consumer feet. Shame is in all this condemnation of the actions of this company how many even consider that?
Just watch - The Sun on Sunday will launch in a few weeks with all the same people and same motives... the URL thesunonsunday.co.uk was registered on 5th July people... watch this space. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose ... as they say... well Rush did on a track on Hemispheres and I've loved that saying ever since :-)
