Scotland Yard collected evidence in 2006 indicating that hundreds of celebrities, government officials, soccer stars – anyone whose personal secrets could be tabloid fodder – might have had their phone messages hacked by reporters at the News of the World tabloid. Only now, more than four years later, are most of them beginning to find out.

See the timeline for details of power and practices of the tabloid media. It is encouraging that these abominations too are coming to the light of the day – and are swiftly bringing down the shadowy web of Rupert Murdoch’s Media Empire. 

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
