Murdochpocalypse 2011: Arrests And Resignations (Updated)

Wow. Now Britain’s top cop has resigned, taking what’s probably a well-deserved fall for a police force embroiled in bribery and propaganda scandals over the News Of The World phone hacking scandal. Also, former NotW editor Rebekah Brooks was arrested today.

If you’re tired of links to The Guardian, you can read a Canadian Press story here. And for anyone who’s brain is blown by the staggering scope of this story, here’s a terrific summary.

I think this is the biggest media scandal of my 40-something lifetime, unless I’m forgetting something huge. Will it take down Rupert Murdoch? I hope so. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Prairie Dog editor Stephen Whitworth was carried to Regina in a swarm of bees. He's been with Prairie Dog since May 1999 and will die at his keyboard before admitting his career a terrible, terrible mistake.

  1. It’s nice to see some huge conglomorate destoryed by truths not discovered by Wikileaks, for a change.

  2. This is no surprise at all to those of us who read The Guardian and The Telegraph online. This has been ticking away quietly for about five years. Kudos to The Guardian (, in particular, for doggedly pursuing it.
