    I see Murdoch's the News of the World, based out of the UK is still hacking people's private phones. And again, these actions have caused hardship on people,,real people.

    Journalists hacked missing teen girl's phone, lawyer charges

    London (CNN) -- Journalists hacked into the phone messages of a missing girl, deleting some to make space for more and thus giving her parents hope she was still alive when she was dead, the parents' lawyer told CNN on Tuesday.

    "The family are completely horrified. They thought this was all over" after the disappearance of Milly Dowler in 2002 and the conviction of a man for her murder this year, lawyer Mark Lewis said.

    But in April, police told the Dowlers that journalists had hacked into their phones and those of their daughter, he said.

    The accusation is the latest twist in a long-running scandal involving media baron Rupert Murdoch's flagship Sunday British tabloid newspaper, the News of the World.

    The paper has apologized for hacking into the voicemails of celebrities and politicians, paying compensation to actress Sienna Miller
    and offering money to others.

    =======================

    That's all Murdoch seems to live for, sensationalism ala tabloid news by using tabloid maneuvers. And people take Murdoch's tabloid news seriously?
    This is about as far from sensibility as anyone could go. Giving false hopes to parents that their missing daughter is alive, when indeed, she's dead. These so-called journalist should be punished and punished severely.
