So News of the World has fallen upon its sword. Typical cynical marketing ploy by a media baron. The perplexing thing about the public outrage is that 8 million people purchased it every week, effectively goading it on to provide them with a weekly diet of banal trash. I do not condone the newspaper for a moment but what is the difference between what it has done and members of a street gang who cheer and encourage one of their number to knife an innocent passer-by? They are all in the dock together. With News of the World it’s all about supply and demand isn’t it? Somebody wants to read it. If the readers boycott the final edition it’ll be the icing on the cake of hypocrisy. I wonder if the Observer’s sales will go up…
