MICHAEL Overjoyed By The Closure Of ‘The News Of The World’!

By on 8 July, 2011


Singer George Michael is thrilled the News of the World newspaper is shutting down following a phone-tapping scandal, insisting the action is “a fantastic day for Britain”!


Media mogul James Murdoch announced the troubled publication will shut down after this coming Sunday’s (10th July, 2011) issue hits the streets – and reclusive star Michael, who has often been a target for the newspaper’s exposes, is over the moon.

Reports suggest News of the World reporters unearthed details about the singer’s DUI arrest last year (2010) by illegally hacking his phone.

In a series of posted on his Twitter page after Murdoch‘s headline-grabbing announcement on Thursday (7th July, 2011),the Fast Love hitmaker accused the paper’s former editor, Rebekah Brooks, of corruption, stating:

“(She) sat two feet from me in my own home and told me that it was never the public that came to them with information, or celebrities, and that the police always got there first.”


He also suggested that the News of the World‘s reporting had robbed him and others of justice, although he insisted he was “happy to do my time” behind bars for his DUI crime, “because I was so ashamed”.

He added:

“I believe every individual, whether privileged or the average citizen, deserves the law. And many of us, rich or poor, have been denied it by News International (News of the World’s parent company).”


The newspaper’s reporters and editors have been accused of hacking in on the phone messages of murder victims, politicians and celebrities.
