Lewis H. Lapham, Waiting For The Barbarians, Dies Irae, p. 133
It grieves the Oracle of Ottawa to no end when another long lived brand bites the dust. When you think of all the things that that the News of the World has been through, and at the end of the day, all the good that it has done, it is a shame that it is a victim of the unrestrained (until now...) right-wing, corporate, Bilderberg Group driven, out of control media nightmare.

It is just about incomprehensible to contemplate that the News of the World was already an established paper when Karl Marx was writing up the notes for Das Kapital at the British Library Reading Room! That is a hell of a run by any standard. Perhaps in its demise, the News of the World will fulfill it greatest role to its former readership and to the world. That being the first crack in the wall of the so far unbreachable organs of right wing mind control.
Mr. Murdoch will or would be the first to tell us that it is all a global world now. What I am wondering is, is this the way that News Corporation does business every where? It would certainly go a long way to explaining the newly unbeatable dominance in the United States market. Hmmmmm... I wonder how Americans will respond to that? Sort of makes Richard Nixon look like a mere peeping tom...
