Rupertgate - Kerfuffle Redux.

Rupertgate - Special edition of the BBC Radio 4 program The Media Show from Friday July 7th where the recent shutting of News Of The World and the Scandal surrounding News International and Newscorp and the Murdoch Empire was the focus of discussion and speculation over what comes next.

<strong>James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks - two peas in a very twisted pod.</strong>


Since news broke of the shutting of News Of The World, amidst the growing scandal involving that paper and the Murdoch Empire for that matter, the airwaves in the UK were filled with programs discussing the issue at length and offering a wide range of scenarios for the future.

One program offered up a Special Edition shortly after the closure was announced. The Media Show is a BBC Radio 4 program devoted entirely to issues regarding all facets of Information and Entertainment. On this segment the talk was exclusively about the news just breaking and speculation over what it spelled out for the future. The answers are wide and varied and the general opinion was to wait and see - it could all change by next Wednesday.

Here is that special edition of The Media Show as first broadcast on July 8th and repeated here in its entirety.

Just remember, it could all change and head in a different direction by next week.
