Les dernières nouvelles de Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch).
Kathryn Larocca's insight:

Even after scandal Rupert Murdoch still tweets controversal things on his twitter page. One of the most controversial being,“Why is Jewish owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?” He then struggled to get over that controversy but still finds home on twitter. This makes me believe he has not truly learned from his mistakes and likes to take risks and create controversy.

This article talks about how without grassroots it will be difficult for Britain's press to have incentive to change. After everything that Rupert Murdoch has done to make sure the scandal does not get out of control, will changes to the Nation's press be a solution? The phone hacking scandal has shaken the media world. Changes may have to be made to the British press.

After the "News of the World" phone hacking scandal the British press realized that they needed tougher press standards.
Kathryn Larocca's comment, April 23, 2013 1:25 PM
"A long-awaited report on the behavior of British newspapers embroiled in the phone hacking scandal recommended on Thursday a new system of press regulation that would be backed by parliamentary statute, setting up what threatened to develop into an acrimonious political debate about curbs on Britain’s 300-year-old tradition of broad press freedom. [The report] advocated for a new form of independent self-regulation for the newspaper industry that would be much tougher than the widely discredited system that has been in place for the past 60 years. Under the new plan, embraced by Mr. Cameron and other party leaders, the existing Press Complaints Commission would be replaced with a body that would be independent of the newspapers and the government and have wide investigative powers and the authority to set fines of up to $1.6 million."
Kathryn Larocca's comment, April 23, 2013 1:28 PM
^The above statement happened November 29th 2012 and stated how the British Newspapers will now have a group independent of the newspapers and the government that could set up fines against British newspapers for wrongdoings. The existing Press Complaints Commission would be replaced by this group.

Rupert Murdoch's Greatest Moments in Ethics and Integrity

Rupert Murdoch's Greatest Moments in Ethics and Integrity | Rupert Murdoch Phone Hacking Scandal | Scoop.it
Are we still talking about this whole phone-hacking scandal at News Corp.? Profits are up at News Corp.
Kathryn Larocca's insight:

This article talks about how the phone hacking scandal is such old news and that "everyone" does this. It also talks about Murdoch's famous line, "There can be no doubt about our commitment to ethics and integrity." Underneath the article citizens just like you and I have commented below how Murdoch is "satan", should be arrested, and "has no integrity at all". This leaves me to thinking; has this scandal been brushed aside because of his power?

This article by the "Mirror" states that Coulson, a former "News of the World" chief reporter, is specifically charged with plotting to hack 13-year-old Milly Dowler's phone. Dowler defended himself by stating; “The charge concerning Milly Dowler is particularly upsetting not only as it is untrue but also because I have spent my journalistic career campaigning for victims of crime." and the adding;"I will vigorously defend these allegations.”

News of the World - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The News of the World was a national red top newspaper published in the United Kingdom from 1843 to 2011. It was at one time the biggest selling English language newspaper in the world, and at closure still had one of the highest English language circulations.[4] Originally established as a broadsheet by John Browne Bell, the Bells sold to Henry Lascelles Carr in 1891; in 1969 it was bought from the Carrs by Rupert Murdoch's media firm News Limited. Reorganised into News International, itself a subsidiary of News Corporation, it was transformed into a tabloid in 1984 and became the Sunday sister paper of The Sun. The newspaper concentrated on celebrity-based scoops and populist news. Its fondness for sex scandals gained it the nicknames News of the Screws and Screws of the World.[5] It had a reputation for exposing national or local celebrities as drug users, sexual peccadilloes, or criminals, setting up insiders and journalists in disguise to provide either video or photographic evidence, and phone hacking in ongoing police investigations.[6][7] Sales averaged 2,812,005 copies per week in October 2010.[8]

From 2006, allegations of phone hacking began to engulf the newspaper. These culminated in the revelation on 4 July 2011 that, nearly a decade earlier, a private investigator hired by the newspaper had intercepted and deleted the voicemail of missing British teenager Milly Dowler, who was later found murdered. A Scotland Yard spokesperson later admitted at the Leveson Inquiry that it had not been a private investigator who had deleted Dowler's voicemail.

Amid a public backlash and the withdrawal of advertising, News International announced the closure of the newspaper on 7 July 2011.[7][9] The scandal deepened when the paper was alleged to have hacked into the phones of families of British service personnel killed in action. Senior figures on the newspaper have been held for questioning by police investigating the phone hacking and corruption allegations. Arrested on 8 July 2011 were former editor Andy Coulson and former News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman, the latter jailed for phone hacking in 2007. The former executive editor Neil Wallis was arrested on 15 July 2011 and former editor Rebekah Brooks, the tenth person held in custody, on 17 July 2011.

This article shows how "News of the World" disregarded journalism's code of ethics by hacking into phones to get information for their articles. Those involved were later found guilty and arrested.
