Journalism? Where's Your Mother?


Journalism? Where's Your Mother?

I can’t keep quiet about this Rupert Murdoch thing. Surely you’ve heard about the News Of The World fiasco that caused it to be shut down after 168 years. That little thing about hacking into the cell phones of celebrities, murder victims and, oh, yes, a child? That was the last straw. The newspaper was accused of deleting messages left on the phone of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, thus interfering with her murder case. Her family thought she might still be alive because her messages were being removed.   Of course, no one has ever accused this money-making machine of sensational stories to be anything more than tabloid journalism at its best (or worst?), but the pressure to come up with ever more scandalous headlines led them to step too deeply into the muck this time....
