    NOTW to Close this Sunday (and Promptly be reborn).

    This news comes as no surprise to most people, it was inevitable that something had to give, for News International to move forward, in essence to cover up their wrongdoings over the Phone Hacking scandal at which the News of The World is embroiled in.

    The News of The World has been at the forefront of tabloid media for 168 years, and it’s death this weekend, will raise a lot of smiles but also much concern.  The concern will focus on the News International and BskyB buyout/takeover and also how The News of the World will be reborn.  The media circus has long been worried over the BskyB takeover and it looks like this is another attempt by News International to soften the effect that Phone Hacking has had on the company and to make the takeover seem less agressive, and to make people feel as though this won’t happen with Sky.

    Personally I would be concerned if News International does get the go ahead to take Sky.  It’s an issue that needs to be looked at.  It’s looking as though The News of The World will be reborn this week at The Sun on Sunday, all the pointers are there, the Web Domains were bought two days ago and it looks like it’ll be gearing up for a release soon.

    It’s a shocking and despicable crime they have committed especially against grieving parents and vulnerable people.  I’d like to see it close forever and never be reborn, however, I’d also like to see Murdoch fry.  But that’s just my opinion.

    You have to ask; How many if any of the previous and current editorial staff will make it to the new paper, after all, the Chair Person, Rebekah Brookes still remains?
