Man borde vara en News of the World-journalist för att bäst sammanfatta dagens händelser inom journalistiken. Högerdrakarna fick nej av High Court att tillfälligt upphäva det parlamentariska beslutet om en nyordning för presseglering, så drottningen har nu undertecknat The Royal Charter. Det är en total skitsallad med ättika på. Greenslade sammanfattar konsekvenserna bäst.

Samtidigt – ya gotta love it – sitter Murdoch’s finest inför skranket, inkluderat Camerons f.d. presstalesman Andrew Coulson och Rupert Murdochs monsterdotter Rebekah Brooks. Inte undra på att The Guardian, upphovet till NotW:s fall, saltade prosan med illa dold förtjusing (notera det där med “närmast dörren”):

The crown opened its case to the jury of nine women and three men by identifying the location of the eight defendants in the dock at the back of court 12 starting with Ian Edmondson, the former head of news at the Sunday newspaper, who sat closest to the door.

Next to him was Brooks, the former chief executive of News International and a former editor of the News of the World and the Sun who is facing five charges spanning a decade linked to all three conspiracies – the conspiracy to intercept mobile telephone voice messages, a conspiracy to corrupt public officials by paying them for information and a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. On her left sat Coulson, another former News of the World editor, who took on the job after Brooks.

Next to him was a seat for a fourth defendant Stuart Kuttner, the paper’s former managing editor. Both Coulson and Kuttner are facing charges linked to a phone-hacking conspiracy.

The Sunday paper’s former royal editor, Clive Goodman, was next in the row of eight, and faces a charge of conspiring to cause misconduct in public office by offering money to public officials for information.

Next to him in the dock was Rebekah Brooks’s former personal assistant Cheryl Carter and her husband Charlie Brooks, who are facing charges linked to perverting the course of justice.

The final defendant is the then News International head of security, Mark Hanna, who also faces charges linked to perverting the course of justice.

Yowza…!

    Men det var förstås i gott syfte….

  2. Jag kommer ihåg det där, faktiskt… Och du kanske blir besviken, stettiner, men jag måste erkänna att jag kände en viss lättnad vid insikten att Guardian inte är så in i själen jävla mjölkvit som den ibland framstår…!
