Is there a case for resurrecting News of the World?

  1. Definitely a case, yes. I suspect Murdoch’s gameplan is to sell of the papers and put in a new bid for BSkyB in 6 months assuming the dust has settled and he’s not been ruled unfit.

    If he were to sell off the papers, he’d sell the rights to the NOTW alongside the Sun at a guess, if I were buying I’d certainly insist on those rights anyway.

  2. There *is* a case, but only if you seriously believe tweet #4 (which I think may turn out to be premature), *and* if you’re seriously willing to argue for the kind of prurient sleaze, casual misogyny, and gutter ‘journalism’ that NotW represents.
