Our media have allegedly stooped to a new low of disgusting corruption - a low that is universally condemned.
So what is the story today? Will Rebekah Wade keep her job!!
Who cares? If she goes, another cut-throat, immoral, lying News Corp clone will take her place. How convenient that we're all sitting around debating her great big pay check and whether she'll lose it in favour of a huge golden handshake, rather than discussing how we can control the out-of-control power of a few men who own half the world's media?
Will anyone honestly remember Ms Wade in a year or two? Will they even remember this scandal? No.
Will they still be controlled by Mr Murdoch and the few eye-wateringly powerful men like him? Yes.
Will he still be able to print pretty much what he likes, deciding the outcome of elections and political policies around the world? Yes.
Will there be a new set of editor-vipers and journo-terrorists and detectives dreaming up even sicker ways of getting the next big story? Yes.
I really wish that today, we were talking about how we stop this, how we make sure something like it never happens again and how we think about limiting the power of unelected media-moguls.
