I was quite surprised nobody made a thread on this, as it gives us all an opportunity to get on our high horses and lambast a tabloid newspaper for their shameful behaviour.

So, this time round, it turns out that the News of the World has also hacked the phone of Milly Dowler (that murdered 13 year old girl whose killer was jailed the other week) just after she'd been kidnapped and, and this is the worst part, deleted voicemails left by her worried friends and family to make room for new ones that might provide some news. This of course led some people to believe she was still alive because her voicemails were being checked.

Obviously, everyone is in uproar, and the other papers are sinking their claws in.

Pretty naughty, isn't it?

Just another day in tabloid journalism, sadly. It's a real shame that this is what the media has come to.

They deserve as much grilling about it as they give to other institutions when they make mistakes.

Even more so, you don't hack someone's phone accidentally.

If this was any other media outlet, they'd be shut down. But because it's News Corp, expect Murdoch to throw a few millions at it and it'll quieten down. The only way they can be stopped is if PEOPLE STOP BUYING the newspapers.

Interesting development in that police have contacted the victims' parents of the Soham murders over phone hacking too, so unsurprisingly, this shit goes deeper.

NoTW should be shut down. Not just because it's a shit paper, but because of all this...it's actually made me feel a bit sick that they've done all this just to sell more papers.

Heh, C4 are reporting that Sara Payne's phone was also hacked, which is going to be delicious seeing as The Sun was a major player in the campaign for Sarah's Law.

This is just too tasty.

I was just about to say I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Sarah Payne murder was involved as well, and hadn't even seen this.

Shows how little faith we have in News of the World, and that's how it should stay. Pricks.

The country should boycott it. Glad to see some advertisers are pulling out of them too.

You're right, but asking the British public to stop buying The Sun and the News of the World? Might as well ask them to stop drinking alcohol and watching Eastenders.

It took Hillsborough to stop most of Merseyside doing it, what's to say something like this won't do the same?

This story just goes to show how low tabloid journalists will go for a story.

And that's what we said after the phone hacking of living celebrities, let alone this.

Wow. I knew tabloid journalism was bad, but this is unbelievable. NOTW shouldn't be allowed to exist, that's for sure, but what about individual journalists or editors? Is anyone being prosecuted over this? I wish they could get to Rupert Murdoch, but he's too powerful.

I hope his other newspapers will be investigated as well.

Fuck off?
That has to be the worse than previous...the depths are low already, I'm struggling to think of lower at the moment.
It really is a shocking practice.
There will be prosecutions I assume, as far as I'm aware phone tapping is illegal unless done by the Police under certain Acts of Parliament.
