This piece, cited at UK's Open Democracy, sharpened my mind marvelously.

If true, it explains the nugget of the problem: politicians in Britain were afraid to investigate Murdoch for fear Rebekah Brooks would expose them. Scotland Yard has been accused of the same thing. NI was Murdoch's own independent investigating apparatus, suitable to an enormously powerful entity which, like al Qaeda, is not a nation-state.

This is beginning to remind me of the Ken Saro-Wiwa case, in which a journalist was hung by the government of Nigeria because he opposed Royal Dutch Shell's pollution of Ogoniland.

My Ken Saro-Wiwa bumper sticker is the only one I've ever had.
