Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the logical conclusion is that media conglomerates should be flat-out illegal.

A scummy yellow muckraking rag like News of the Screws has a right to exist. On condition that it doesn't go bankrupt losing court cases. Which, of course, it would, if not owned by someone powerful enough to pervert the course of justice.

An almost overlooked salutary side-effect to the scandal is that the Murdochs lost their bid to a monopoly over UK satellite TV : they still only have a stranglehold on it. They need to lose this, of course.

No doubt the era of Murdoch's supremacy in the UK is over; they need to seize the opportunity to codify it so the nightmare can never happen again.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
