Does anyone else find this quote from David Cameron a bit worrisome? I know the UK is reeling from this hacking scandal, but throwing the idea of a free press completely out with the bathwater seems a bit drastic.
[Cameron] said an inquiry into the workings of the press could begin this summer and lead to a new system of regulation that should be “independent of the press so that the public will know that newspapers will never again be solely responsible for policing themselves.”
A Valid Question: The closest that we’ve seen to an answer is an earlier tweet from @maureenoco on the record internet scandal to resignation time (3.5 hours, from what she says).
Has anyone out there seen a solid answer on this?
I’m posing a fair question here! I think Massa was ~3 days…it took him a weekend and a dig at Rahm before he walked away. Foley, according to Wikipedia at least, was pretty much overnight. Sept. 28th saw him explaining away his weird request for a page’s photo, and the following day saw some hard evidence (the infamous chat logs). He resigned from Congress in a one-sentence letter. - BR ($ries)
