The downfall of Rupert Murdoch (and his enterprises) in the United Kingdom, primarily, after it was revealed that they paid people to hack into the voicemails of people, including:
- 9/11 victims
- 7/7 victims
- Milly Dowler, a girl who was abducted and killed. Hacks deleted her voicemail messages, when her box was full, to make way for new messages, so they could get more info.
The News of the World paper printed its final edition in July 2011. This was only the start of the Murdochalypse.
It will probably be relaunched, under a new name, like The Sun] On Sunday.
