Everyone was doing it, but the boss didn’t know about it: Murdochgate continues

The Sunday People editor, James Scott, has become the first serving newspaper editor arrested over alleged phone hacking, relating to his time at the Sunday Mirror a decade ago.

Scott was one of four former Sunday Mirror senior journalists arrested in dawn raids on Thursday on suspicion of conspiracy to intercept voicemail messages. Tina Weaver, the ex-Sunday Mirror editor who is seven months pregnant, was also arrested on Thursday morning.

The other two were Nick Buckley, the deputy Sunday People editor, and Mark Thomas, the former People editor, who also both formerly worked for the Sunday Mirror.

  1. Amazing how a man known for his micromanagement and his hiring of persons whose chief asset in his view was their slavish adherence to his dictates wouldn’t know anything about such a widespread practice in his organization.
