    Hugh Grant says time to stand up to media bullying | Reuters

    He's absolutely right, but I don't see what can be done, really.

    Two of the newspapers that Grant has accused of hacking do not belong to News Corp. :eek:

    That bastion of British Left Wing politics... The Guardian.... also stands accused of hacking. :eek:

    Such is the standard of 'journalism'.

    Oh, and.... there is still absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any of News Corps US media being involved in hacking. :eek:

    Poor Hugh. He is probably still angry at the US media for publishing his mug shot after his arrest for soliciting a prostitute. It's hard to muster much sympathy for celebs who sniff, sniff, think they are victimized by the media.

    Who cares what a drunkard entertainer who has a passion for teenage prostitutes has to say about anything other than a film he is in?
    Maybe we should also ask Rob Lowe what he thinks.

    Okay. Why are you responding as though I accused someone specifically in the OP?

    Honey, just because you haven't grown or matured over the past 20 years give or take, doesn't mean the rest of the world is stuck in a time warp.

    Just keepin' it real. Because every time the hacking shit comes up, the left assume that it was purely News Corp and the evil Murdochs (insert maniacal laugh here).

    You quoted the Guardian earlier today - on another thread... I might consider that hacking shit when linking to sources.

    Time warp?
    If I had sex with an underage girl and filmed it - I would be in jail. No question.
