In defense of Rebekah Brooks: a British lawyer cripples the prosecution case — (Reuters) - Just weeks before her trial on phone-hacking charges was due to start, Rebekah Brooks got some crushing news: the former head of Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper arm learnt that her main defense lawyer could no longer represent her.
Nick Davies / Guardian:
Phone-hacking trial was officially about crime; but in reality, it was about power — Rupert Murdoch's money washed through the ‘trial of the century’ like a Rolls-Royce. The story behind the News of the World scandal was not about journalists behaving badly, but the power of money and its abuses

New York Times never had blogs as they were edited, the term was usurped by reporters who felt threatened by blogs — I know what a blog is — A blog is the unedited voice of a person. — The lack of editing is central, because it's one person who's responsible for every word.
