"One of Rupert Murdoch's papers stands accused of hacking the phone of murdered teenager Milly Dowler, causing her family even more pain, and risking a police inquiry.

"At the same time, this week, Murdoch is expecting to get the green light from the government for his takeover of BSkyB."

If you think this doesn't sound too good, please consider going to this campaigning website and signing their petition.

I'd second that. I've already signed.

It's a mockery - they want the freedom and yet deny others the freedom just to be themselves.

One day, the politicians have to decide who is running the country. I'm not quite sure why they're all so happy to hand over power to this man.

That makes it sound so less horrific than it is, bearing in mind NOTW also stand accused of deleting phone calls, hindering a police inquiry and giving her family false hope that Milly was still alive (and then interviewing them...)

I can only assume the campaign is at pains to avoid being dismissed as "whipping up hysteria" or some such. But yes, I agree - what NOTW did was horrific, cruel and utterly disgusting. Somewhere along the line newspapers appear to have forgotten that their job is to report the news, not create it.
