I'll have more to say about the revolting sores on the world that are Rupert Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks, but I'd rather wait till things stop moving quite so fast. Anything I say about it now could be superseded in an hour. We're already up to their conducting surveillance on a prime minister's sick child. So this is more of a random roundup. So much.
It's true nothing explodes quite so abruptly as hubris. There's gushing blood in the water, lots of it, and other, smaller sharks than he who know they'll never get as close to the old ferret's throat again. Everybody hates Murdoch, but they also either fear him and/or need him. But he may have made his usefulness moot. This has so far gone to two, maybe three key parts of his empire and spreading fast. Stockholders are suing. He can't close down everything, can he? Well, one can hope. But it's amazing that the News of the World closure seems the least surprising part now.
They are a cute couple though. People wonder why Murdoch is willing to sacrifice his own son before this person. I submit it's probably something she does with her tongue.
I shouldn't make such terrible and slimy innuendoes against Rebekah Brooks. I'm sure, when I see pictures like this, there's no reason Rupert's wife reportedly deplores her. Probably just doesn't like gingers.

And she's so very sympathetic. Just look at this collection of astounding examples.
Moving on to the startlingly amoral Paul McMullan vs. a very pissed and articulate Steve Coogan. It's really amazing to me about a lot of the players here: if I were going to cast villains they would look & sound just like the Murdoch people. Very Dickensian. Paul here might as well be named Slimy McWeasel; just look and listen. McMullan has to be played in the biopic by Jam's Mark Heap or there is no justice.
