Hugh Grant should have been in LA Noire
I've got a newfound respect for this guy - well, actually he has decent taste in prostitutes, too (I kid)- but this little interview with the guy made me think of him as quite a sleuth even though realistically he only recorded a loaded conversation.

Love that last line. McMullan himself probably wouldn't have been out of place in LA Noire either, he's practically a living, breathing (and squirming) caricature of a tabloid hack.
The original transcript in the New Statesman is well worth a read too, if you haven't already.

Personally enjoying the hell out of all this NoW fallout. I think it's quite interesting that Cameron seems to be more than happy to throw anyone under the train at this point (including Digger junior it seems) in order to wash his hands of any association with NI. Given the immense resources still available to Murdoch, that seems to be a particularly bold move on his part. I doubt he'll be getting a Christmas card from Mr M this year for sure. Odds of the BSkyB merger going through anytime soon are probably zilch now.

All they did was hack a few phones and pay off a few bent coppers. A price worth paying for the fake Sheikh.

I think the bent coppers are more of a story to be honest, I'm a bit sick of all the "he hired a minister that later found out to have shady dealings" thing. The bent coppers again like most of these things is not the issue the news is focusing on which kind of pisses me off a little bit. Thats the real scandal!

Edit: The whole thing stinks to high hell, but it's not very surprising.. British newspapers will one day be on a par with their Italian counterparts... Fuck these sycophantic politicians, fuck these sniveling "journalists" and fuck the general public who lap it up. YOU FACKING LOVE IT.
Edit 2: And Fuck You Rupert Murdoch.
