News of the World closing down

While I can't say I'm saddened by the demise of the News of the World itself, I think they way the staff have been treated is appealing.

While their actions in monitoring people's private telephones are obviously deplorable, it's somewhat hypocritical for everyone to be calling for their blood as it's us the consumer who have been buying the paper and keeping them in business and funding it all.

To be completely honest, the whole thing feels more like a quick and dirty way to cut costs, while making a sacrifice to appease the public.

What really saddens me is that an awful lot of very good journalists at the News of the World have just lost thier jobs for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

I expect there are some very angry people at News International right now.
