Yes I know there is a difference between buggery and phone bugging/hacking. I simply wrote a Murdoch inspired headline.
Can you say schadenfreude? That delightful glowing joy one feels when bad things happen to deserving villains.
I only hope this represents a crack in the dam that destroys the Murdoch Empire of Evil.
For all the energy put forth by Transgender Activists with regards to crappy films that shall remain nameless, far more damage has been done to TG/TG people in Great Britain and elsewhere by the scum bags and pseudo-journalists who make up the stream of filth and lies emanating from all the media outlets that comprise Murdoch Evil Empire. All the Ses-Swap Model Headlines. All the Former Air force Pilot Turned Barmaid headlines.
It is time for people to carefully examine and question the veracity of anything and everything that comes through what are basically right wing propaganda machines owned and operated purely in the interests of the filthy rich.

News of the World axed by News International
Sunday edition of Murdoch’s tabloid to be last in the aftermath of political and commercial fallout from phone-hacking scandal
News International announced on Thursday that it is closing the News of the World after this Sunday’s edition, with no end in sight to the political and commercial fallout from the phone-hacking scandal after 72 hours of mounting crisis.
Sunday’s edition of the paper will be the last, News International chairman James Murdoch told News of the World staff on Thursday afternoon.
Murdoch told employees at the 167-year-old title: “The News of the World is in the business of holding others to account. But it failed to when it came to itself”.
Murdoch said in a statement: “Wrongdoers turned a good newsroom bad and this was not fully understood or adequately pursued.”
Murdoch also conceded the company had “made statements to parliament without being in full possession of the facts. This was wrong”.
He said “the News of the World and News International wrongly maintained that these issues were confined to one reporter” and that the company had passed information to the police which would demonstrate this.

The Murdoch Style, Under Pressure
Risk-taking and line-skirting have always been just one more cost of doing business for Rupert Murdoch.
But before Thursday, the widening voice-mail hacking scandal at the British tabloid News of the World had threatened to stain the company’s image in a way that other embarrassing incidents at News Corporation’s far-flung media properties — which also include the Fox networks and The New York Post — had not.
In the past, Mr. Murdoch has either outlasted his critics or acted swiftly to limit the fallout. On Thursday, he was in damage-control mode again: The company announced it would shut down The News of the World as of Sunday.
Mr. Murdoch had already moved quickly to denounce the hacking and announce its intention to cooperate with the police, but the damage was proving difficult to contain.
Before the sudden closing of the newspaper, there was a growing consensus within the company that Rebekah Brooks, the chief executive of News International and onetime editor who has become the focus of much of the outrage over the hacking, would be forced out of her job, according to people with knowledge of discussions inside News Corporation.
The possibility of firing Ms. Brooks was one that several people close to Mr. Murdoch said he was fiercely resisting because he was loyal to her and viewed the campaign against her as a vendetta by the company’s political enemies.
