Re: News Int. journalists: Rebekah Brooks has resigned
For those with access to Sky News, Rebekah Brooks is due to appear before MPs (live) on the Commons Culture Committee next Tuesday (14.30 GMT) where she'll hopefully face some stiff questioning and squirm somewhat.
The demise of NOTW just means that millions of impressionable readers will be deprived of a lowbrow rag, and maybe some will migrate to new media sources where more critical thinking is required.
I'm no fan of Murdoch, but the leftist media led by the BBC, in collusion with the Labour party, have seized upon this hacking scandal as opportunity to stick many knives into the News International beast and diminish the right-wing influence. One can choose not to buy Murdoch's papers or not subscribe to Sky, but if people refuse to pay the BBC licence, they can be arrested and even imprisoned. That's the difference.

The wicked flee when none pursueth. Proverbs 28:1
