I thought we had a thread about Murdoch and the closure of the NOW, but I can't find it, so I'll report this here.

Leaked letters

He said he felt "shock and anger" at how "one-sided" the letter was, calling it "a diatribe" that "throws the book at the industry".

Quite right too, it deserves it by all accounts.

Some of the criticisms in the document were, he said, "certainly justified" but others "raise eyebrows" and did not bear any relation to practices at his paper or other titles at his "end of the market".

Fair comment, it is the tabloid end that is in the firing line.

The final report is going to be very interesting reading.
