Okay, for those of you who don’t know – The “News of The World” newspaper will release it’s last edition of the newspaper this Sunday – due to all of its advertisers pulling out. The reason for this is because of many phone hacking incedents, including that of Milly Dowlers mobile phone. In my opinion this is all wrong – and the newspaper deserves to shut, and the people who work there deserve to lose their jobs.
There is more detailed information about all of the phone hacks here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/News_of_the_World_phone_hacking_affair
Just to say, this is the perfect reason why we shouldn’t give BSKYB to Rupert Murdoch – as he has shown from News of the world that he cannot be responsible. He is also an owner of “The Sun” newspaper, a shareholder in Sky Television & BSKYB, and the owner of the “Five” TV channel.
I certainly won’t be buying “The Sun” now, not just because of this – but because it’s not a newspaper anyway. Rupert Murdoch has too much influence in this country, he has the power to turn the nation against anybody. He even has the power (and has used this) to control elections.
Anyway, enough of my rant – if you have any comments, post them below.
