Phone Hacking Scandal Shuts Down Rupert Murdoch Newspaper
Jul 08, 2011 11:34
News of the World's 168-year-old tabloid legacy has been put under the microscope over the past few days after it was revealed that they'd hired a private investigator to hack into the voicemail of a murdered teen Milly Dowler, before deleting messages to make way for new, incoming voicemails. The move ultimately misled members of Dowler's family to believe she was still alive, when in fact she was long dead.
Thus wasn't the first time News of the World's phone-hacking tactics have been exposed. They were also the one's behind the phone hack involving members of the British royal family. Actress Sienna Miller has also managed to successfully sue the tabloid for hacking into her cellphone. But the particularly despicable nature of the Milly Dowler case was the final nail on the tabloid's coffin, enraging just about everyone from the media to the police.
The pressure and criticism has led to James Murdoch (son of Rupert Murdoch and the Deputy Chief Operating Officer of
News Corporation) to officially announce that Sunday's edition of the British tabloid News of the World will be its last, leading to the abrupt dismissal of some 250 employees. According to Murdoch, they will continue to corporate with the two major criminal investigations focused on News of the World.
