The closure of the News of the World -- a Murdoch owned British tab, its richest -- was announced today amid allegations of police bribery, a Tory-inspired Scotland Yard cover up, and that its employees had hacked the telephones of as many as 4,000 people, ranging from Prince William's aides to the families of casualties in Iraq and a murdered girl.

The editor under whom the charges first began to snowball resigned and went to work for the prime minister as the Conservative party's number one Downing Street spokesman.

Jeez! He's about to be arrested!

Almost all the advertisers of NotW had pulled out, Murdoch has not fired its flame-haired editrix, although everyone else has been axed, amid plans to take another Murdoch property, The Sun, into seven-day-a-week publication to replace the Sunday-only NotW.

The British tabs are, as a friend of mine who is (you pick) a distinguished Columbia J-school grad reporter/a natural criminal, once pointed out, the home of the world's best reporters.

This story is so juicy I have to read it with a bib.

Murdoch and his piece-of-work wife, Wendi, nee Deng Wenge, who, at 42, is 700 hundred years younger than he, and who got her green card by snaking her sponsor's husband who was a mere 30 years older than she, arrive today at the Sun Valley plutocrats' summer camp.
