    This is crazy. Here's a chart/list of the many people involved or victimized by NoW phone hacking.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12296392

    You'd think that by hacking all those phones, NoW would be the most accurate paper ever, but they're one of the least reliable. I thought they just make their stories up. Aren't they the ones that sometimes headline the doings of Batboy?

    ETA Never mind. Batboy is the creation of Weekly World News.

    Here's the Guardian's take on the matter:

    Missing Milly Dowler's voicemail was hacked by News of the World
    The News of the World illegally targeted the missing schoolgirl Milly Dowler and her family in March 2002, interfering with police inquiries into her disappearance, an investigation by the Guardian has established.

    Angry

    She won't resign though will she? and now it is alleged that the Soham girl's parents phones were hacked too.

    All Rebekah Brooks can do is pass the buck, she should resign in shame. This happened on her watch.

    To add to the grief of these parents is sadistic and abusive

    ford motor company in the uk have banned all adverts in any newspapers owned by news international and other major companies in the uk are considering there own options.

    Also the house of commons will be debating this issue on wednesday for 3 hours concerning this issue.

    hugh grant the movie star as said to the bbc earlier today that he recorded a interview with a former news of the world reporter who told him what was going on concerning the milly dowler phone hacking and also the soham murders he also suggested that the police in the uk have failed the public.

    Angry Murdoch calls allegations against his paper 'deplorable'

    Murdoch calls allegations against his paper 'deplorable'
    By Richard Allen Greene, CNN
    July 6, 2011 9:40 p.m. EDT

    London (CNN) -- Media baron Rupert Murdoch broke his silence on a scandal swirling around his flagship British tabloid newspaper Wednesday, calling allegations that journalists illegally hacked into the voice mails of murder and terrorism victims "deplorable and unacceptable."...

    ________________________________________________

    ...Initial complaints about hacking came from politicians and celebrities, but the story took a new turn Tuesday with the accusation that the paper hacked into the voice mails of the murdered girl.

    "The family are completely horrified. They thought this was all over" after the disappearance of Milly Dowler in 2002 and the conviction of a man for her murder this year, Dowler family lawyer Mark Lewis said Tuesday.

    But in April, police told the Dowlers that journalists had hacked into their phones and those of their daughter, he said.

    Journalists deleted some of Milly Dowler's messages to make space for more, thus giving her parents hope she was still alive when she was dead, Lewis said....


    If you believe Murdoch didn't know about this and didn't condone it then you probably think KC is not guilty. JMO

    Hacking scandal exposes secrets at Murdoch's tabloid
    By Peter Wilkinson, CNN
    July 6, 2011 2:48 p.m. EDT

    London (CNN) -- In 2005, the best-selling weekly UK tabloid News of the World published a seemingly mundane story about Prince William injuring his knee.

    It was just another exclusive for a newspaper that had made its reputation on hard-hitting exclusives, often exposing the embarrassments of celebrities and politicians.

    Britain's newspaper culture which developed around London's Fleet Street, nicknamed the "Street of Shame" by satirical magazine Private Eye, has long been based on cut-throat competition and dirty dealings -- anything goes if you can land the big story.

    But this scoop was different from the others. Royal officials realised that it could only have been sourced by the illegal interception of Prince William's mobile phone voicemail, and complained to the police....

    the non Rupert Murdoch owned media is delighting in the kicking the Murdoch empire is getting, as is much of the country, for far too long politicians, prime ministers, the polics, the judicairy have been scared to challenge him for fear he would turn his hacks onto them,


    at long last some of them (even if it is in self interest) are asking questions, and lifting the lid on his newspapers and what they have done
