Fine British Satire

I love The Onion fiercely, but the Daily Mash is more than matching its best stuff over the Newscorp scandal:

Murdochs know far less about News International than you do
YOU know considerably more about News International than Rupert Murdoch and his son James, it has been confirmed.

As the the two people who run News International on a daily basis appeared before MPs, it emerged that neither of them have ever spoken to anyone who has worked there and have no idea what the company does.

Asked when he knew that News International had paid people to keep schtum about the phone scandal thingy, Rupert Murdoch said: "Do they make those inflatable chairs with the built-in cup holders?"

After a 14-minute pause, he added: "I like those."

MPs 'may have been misled' by arse-covering lounge lizard
A PARLIAMENTARY committee may have been misled by an unctuous corporate sleaze-ball who was there for the sole reason of covering his sorry arse.

It has emerged that James Murdoch may actually have been aware of one thing about the company he runs and could now be forced to pay lawyers to come up with a skilfully modernised version of what he actually knew.
(click for the very well chosen picture of James Murdoch on this one)

Parents 'have right to know if News of the World pervert lives next door'
EVERY family in Britain lives no more than 50 miles from a predatory, News of the World phone beast, it has emerged.

The discovery has boosted the campaign for a new law that will force police to warn neighbourhoods if a News of the World employee is living nearby, how long they have known about it and how much they were paid to keep their mouths shut.

As it emerged the tabloid had been stalking murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, parents said it is vital they know where the dangerous perverts are living.
I'm going to read the Daily Mash more often.  Evidently those bad British libel laws aren't stifling them too badly.
