The phone hacking trial has finished with one found guilty and Rebekah Brooks and her husband getting off free. Already the press is starting to rally around the view that they have been vindicated. How badly done to they have been treated. NOT. It was great to see Brooks getting the sort of treatment other people get from the press and paparazzi. She was shaking like a leaf and that smirk as she got into her car said it all. This woman was an editor in charge of a news paper that broke the law. How many times has she reported that the buck stops at the boss. Any good boss knows what is happening in their business so either she is a crap boss or she knew exactly what was going on. Or think the latter. This woman could fall in a sewer and come out smelling of roses. I'm sure Murdock will be preparing a well paid job for her. Let's just hope there is a corporate case to answer now and that weasel Rupert Murdock and his son get what's coming to them. Non of this or the Leveson enquiry is stopping the press doing what it is doing in terms if investigative journalism. What it is doing is trying to put a stop to the press investigating the seedy side of people's lives which are not illegal. Sign the Hacked Off petition and let's get the free press working properly.
