Some Useful Links

Found some links that may be of use for question 2. They are from 2011 and cover the death of The News of the World.

If you only read one, make it this one:

MEDIAWEEK (7/7/11): “News of the World to close, ending 168-year history”

The Guardian (5/7/11) – Npower reviews News of the World advertising amid phone-hacking row” 

The Daily Telegraph (5/7/11): News of the World loses adverts over Milly Dowler scandal

The Daily Mail (7/7/11): News of the World shuts after key clients pull their adverts” (NB: This is an archived page to prevent the Daily Mail receiving any traffic and/or advertising revenue)

Yahoo News (6/7/11): Advertisers Ditch News of the World as Cameron Takes Heat

ABC News (Australia)(8/7/11): Murdoch ditches News of the World tabloid

BBC Website (7/7/11):News of the World: Counting the cost


And a wee bit of historical info from the previous year when, presumably, the News of the World were still actively trying to find scoops by hacking. Can you think why they may have felt justified? (And which perspective is this related to?)

Mediaweek (22/3/10): Profits for The Sun and News of The World slip 10%
