News of the World phone-hacking scandal.In recent weeks, one story has dominated the Britishmedia – the newspaper phone-hacking story.Allegedly, private investigators, paid for their services by journalists at a leading Sunday newspaper, hacked into the mobile phones of politicians, celebrities and victims of crime. Having gained access to the voicemail of their victims, the hackers spied on them by listening in on their private conversations.As more and more details leaked out, some journalists have complained that they were constantly leaned on by editors to come up with exclusive stories for the paper and this, in turn, forced them to resort to illegal methods to come by such stories.As the scandal grew, the debate about the freedom of the press and personal privacy started to hot up. It soon became clear that the newspaper in question had also attempted to cover up certain evidence of wrongdoing. In order to fend off further criticism, the management of the newspaper decided to close it down and lay off its 200 employees.The furore over the behaviour of certain individuals shows no sign of dying down and, as ever more lurid details come out on an almost daily basis, no-one can say with any certainty what the investigation into the affair is going to turn up next.
