I saw a Sky interview (I know, sky .... ) .. there were some street interviews and one chap pretty much said very politely word to the effect of "Why target just one for the rest to hind behind" ... couldn't have put it better really.
This. nothing the News of the World Did, all the other newspapers (except the Guardian) weren't also doing at the same time.
His enemies have got their claws in him this time. They want revenge for him not getting them into power.

Strange that he thinks News Paper people are more respected than politicians, bit like a toilet bowl full to the brim of s**t calling a kettle black.
Also odd that he was not aware that even the conservative party is calling for Murdoch to be kicked out.
The problem for News Corp is because they have not removed the real culprits now everyone is saying the next stage is that they will go after the Sun.
I don't care which politicians are calling for him to be kicked out. Who cares what they want?
And i don't really care if some pretentious lefty twats have some cross bench support. I don't care that there are pretentious lefty twats on both sides of the benches these days and I don't like conservatives all that much either.
The problem for News Corp, is that they have removed the real culprits, many years ago. The problem for News Corp is the woman that they are trying to destroy, is the woman who kicked them all out, not the woman who hired them. Where did you think the police got all their evidence from?
And if they throw her to the wolves, it won't stop there, any more than it stopped when they threw Coulson to the wolves. Twice. They will go on to Murdochs son and Murdoch himself.
And Murdoch, his son and his editor, didn't do it. in fact we aren't even sure if anything at all has been done yet
. We are just at the accusation stage.
But shit sticks. And when it comes to Murdoch there are a whole load of people who spend considerable hours per day attempting to stick shit to him.
Because ultimately as you can see by many of the responses in this thread, that's what a load of people want to see.
No one here has waxed lyrical about the victims of phone hacking, no one gives much of a monkies about that. That is not what this is all about.
They just want to see Murdoch get strung up and this looks like the vehicle so many people have been waiting for to this end.
And me, I see no justice in this. I wish him all the best. I hope he gets to buy BSkyB. I hope his accusers slip on a banana peel and reap the just rewards of their machiavellian schemes.
I don't care if he goes too, but I do want to see them get it, and I reckon he is just the kind of he man to be able to stand up to them.
That all the lefties hate this guy is pure bonus comedy.
