导读:媒体大亨鲁珀特·默多克旗下《世界新闻报》窃听风波继续“发酵”。默多克于7日宣布,将于本周日出版的《世界新闻报》会是最后一期,此后将关闭该报。

窃听风波的受害人可能包括在伊拉克和阿富汗阵亡英军家属和英国财政大臣乔治·奥斯本。英国警方6日着手调查《世界新闻报》窃听事件中多名警察是否接受贿赂。



Rupert Murdoch will shut down Britain's biggest selling Sunday newspaper, the News of the World, in a startling response to a scandal engulfing his media empire.

As allegations multiplied that its journalists hacked the voicemails of thousands of people, from child murder victims to the families of Britain's war dead, the tabloid hemorrhaged advertising, alienated millions of readers and posed a growing threat to Murdoch's hopes of buying broadcaster BSkyB.

The announcement, one of the most dramatic in the 80-year-old press baron's controversial career, is widely seen as an effort to prevent the crisis from spreading beyond the News of the World to more lucrative parts of Murdoch's empire.

The scandal has also become a huge embarrassment for British Prime Minister David Cameron because of his close ties to some of the figures at the center of the controversy.

Murdoch's son James, who chairs the British newspaper arm of News Corp, said News of the World has been "sullied by behavior that was wrong."

"Indeed, if recent allegations are true, it was inhuman and has no place in our company," he said in a statement. "The News of the World is in the business of holding others to account. But it failed when it came to itself."

He praised the News of the World for "a proud history of fighting crime, exposing wrong-doing" and setting the nation's news agenda. But he said the paper, which his father bought in 1969, was unviable because of the scandal.

The announcement that the paper's final issue will be on Sunday, July 10 may even be a signal that the famously excessive practices of British tabloid journalism will be less prevalent in the future.
