REBEKAH Wade gets the job at News Corp:

News Corporation today announced the appointment of Rebekah Wade to the role of Chief Executive Officer of News International.

Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, News Corporation, said:

“Rebekah is a great campaigning editor…

Such as:

In 2004, however, she did begin a high-profile campaign against the scourge of domestic violence.

As reported:

On Wednesday, she and Ross Kemp, a leading EastEnders soap star and her husband of three years, were among the 20 guests at the 42nd birthday party at the Notting Hill home of their friend PR mogul Matthew Freud, whose wife is Elisabeth Murdoch, the daughter of Wade’s employer, who was also present.

At 3am, the couple returned, in Wade’s chauffeur-driven Mercedes, to their house in Battersea. An argument which began in the car continued indoors, and Kemp rang the police in a fit of anger. At 4am, four policeman arrived on their doorstep to investigate a complaint of assault by Wade. Kemp had a cut to his lip, but refused medical treatment and later said it had been sustained during the previous day’s filming of his SAS television drama series Ultimate Force.

Wade was arrested and taken to a nearby police station where she was fingerprinted and had a DNA sample taken before she was locked in a cell to sleep. At 8am, Murdoch waited in vain for Wade at a scheduled breakfast meeting at Wapping. She was finally released without charge at 12am.

All said, the Sun is, under Wade, best tabloid by a mile…
