If you’re watching the Murdoch hearings live and wondering who that man above is: Meet Labor M.P. Tom Watson, aka Rupert Murdoch’s “Tormenter-in-Chief.”

 

Watson had appeared to many as a lonely and possibly unhinged figure as he railed against the apparent lawlessness of the Murdoch empire. While British politicians and media ignored the issue, Watson hammered away at it in speeches and parliamentary sessions, in the process becoming its public face—which was not necessarily a good image to have. Some friends, Watson admitted, “probably said, ‘This is getting a bit obsessive.‘”

I think they’re doing the most they can with a very unpleasant and uncomfortable situation. No one ever wants to write about their boss…. And when you do, there’s always a degree of self-editing that goes on. Knowing that, it’s pretty impressive how they have been very tough on Murdoch and News Corp. at times.

A New York Times reporter, who didn’t wish to be named, discussing the Wall Street Journal’s coverage of Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World phone-hacking scandal. Which has gone like this:

After running articles on page B1 and B3 on its first two days, the News of the World closure made the front page last Friday. The story was then relegated back inside—although Journal reporters Jessica Vascellaro and Russell Adams broke news Wednesday with a report that News Corp. was contemplating the sale of its remaining British newspapers. As the scandal has continued to explode anew each day, the Journal has, indeed, upped its game. Murdoch’s decision to revoke his bid for British Sky Broadcasting was fronted again Wednesday, and yesterday, the paper published the first extensive interview with Murdoch.
