He didn't wait in vain, as he found a way to hack into roughly 9000 phone numbers. The juiciest news is discovered in a private conversation. Whether you're a tabloid reporter, or a FOX news journalist, the best way to get your story is from the source. Once that well runs dry, the cesspool is carefully covered to avoid any refuse leakage.
British Prime Minister, David Cameron, hasn't been getting the best publicity since The News of the World took its fall. Cameron's political career is now in jeopardy due to his decision of hiring former News of the World editor, Andy Coulson in 2007. Coulson, who found his job to be difficult once the phone tapping became public, is currently out on bail. There are those who demand an apology for Cameron's lack of good judgment concerning his ties to Coulson. As a firm believer in second chances, Cameron defends his choice of hiring Coulson, while promising new rules for the media.
Fox News, which is a subsidiary of News Corp, has kept the phone hacking and police bribery allegations on the down low. Standing by its self proclaimed "fair and balanced" views, the station has hardly mentioned the scandal. In their defense, bigger news has been in the forefront. There is Fox and Friends, "How would Dr. Phil solve the debt crisis?" There is Greta Van Susteren's interview, "Roseanne Barr's 'Nuts' About her New TV Show, not Crazy about Casey Anthony Verdict." They have also been busy with recent press conference coverage on debt talks, "Obama Would Rather Focus on New Programs."
As News Corp. is losing their influence throughout the U.K., they have decided a takeover of British Sky Broadcasting may not be the most profitable decision at this time. In hopes of a charitable contribution, The News of the World offered free advertising to charities, many of which were wise to decline. As the empire crumbles, one question hangs in the balance, "If you can't trust the media, who can you trust?" Inquiring minds want to know.
