News of the World "journalist" hacks murdered girl's cell phone, deletes messages. I love the non-denial denial of the organization's chief: "Rebekah Brooks, who was editor of the paper at the time of the alleged hacking and is now chief executive of News International, told staff she was 'sickened that these events are alleged to have happened.' "
Now, is she sickened the event happened, or is she sickened that the allegation happened? I read the latter interpretation. She ought to resign, and if the UK has an obstruction of justice charge, the hacker and the paper ought to be charged and prosecuted. This strikes me as beyond the pale of decency.
