Nothing of Murdoch, ever ever again.

From Guy Rundle:

So when the time for a real moral decision came along, the organisation had lost any governance — and no-one could decide not to cross the line, and not hack the phone of the family of Milly Dowler, a missing schoolgirl. Dowler had been murdered, but at that time she was still listed as missing. Murdoch’s hacks hacking into Dowler’s mobile erased two messages. Though the messages were of no importance in themselves, the act gave the family hope that their daughter was still alive.

I don’t think I buy any NewCorpse products. But I never ever will again.* That’ll include Harper Collins and any thing else on this list.

When Dennis Potter was dying of cancer, he named his tumour Rupert. It turns out that this was an insult to tumours everywhere.

*And I think this has inspired me to become a bit more of a media activist. Ya basta.
