It was the scandal that brought down a 168-year-old British newspaper and threatened to topple Rupert Murdoch’s entire media empire. But what made the revelations of phone hacking by News of the World and other British papers so shocking was not that reporters spied on celebrities or even royalty. Rather, it was that in an effort to sell more papers, the tabloids hacked the phones of a missing little girl and the families of soldiers killed in Iraq. That Murdoch himself was pied in the face during his testimony before Parliament last summer only seemed like just desserts.
