The News Of The World Is Closing – This Sunday’s Edition To Be Last Ever (Randy Vicars Rejoice)

by | 7th, July 2011

THE News of the World is closing this Sunday. This will best the last one. Rutting vicars, priapic footballers, sex-up nuns and reality TV-to-porn stars rejoice!Also rejoice mums and dads of murdered children and dead soldiers.

Now. Only the Daily Mail left to go…

PS – look out for the Sun going seven days a week.

Says James Murdoch:

“The News of the World is in the business of holding others to account. But it failed when it came to itself. In 2006, the police focused their investigations on two men. Both went to jail. But the News of the World and News International failed to get to the bottom of repeated wrongdoing that occurred without conscience or legitimate purpose.

“Wrongdoers turned a good newsroom bad and this was not fully understood or adequately pursued. As a result, the News of the World and News International wrongly maintained that these issues were

confined to one reporter. We now have voluntarily given evidence to the police that I believe will prove that this was untrue and those who acted wrongly will have to face the consequences. This was not the only fault.

“The paper made statements to Parliament without being in the full possession of the facts. This was wrong. The company paid out-of-court settlements approved by me. I now know that I did not have a complete picture when I did so. This was wrong and is a matter of serious regret.”

So. A nice clean piece of paper for News International, then. And all ready to get it nice and dirty…

Or as this wag puts it: GOTCHA!
