Leveson inquiry: was Murdoch’s failure to get to grips with hacking an aberration?

One stand-out moment in Rupert Murdoch’s testimony today was his statement about the News of the World being “an aberration” and that he should have closed it years ago.

So, during those years when I was regularly describing it as a rogue newspaper (aka an aberration), he agreed with me.

The difference is that he had the power to do something about it, and did nothing. But I certainly feel vindicated for my long campaign against the paper’s dodgy methodology (and the resulting content).
