No news is bad news.

The phone tapping scandal by Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World has been on the front pages here as well as in the UK.

Well, almost all of the front pages.

There was, however, a noticeable absence of this story in the Herald Sun, a News Limited publication.

I have always been led to believe that reporters are meant to report the big stories.

I guess it all comes down to what is regarded as a good story to report.

The News of the World may have shown no ethics but at least their advertisers have displayed some balls and pulled large hunks of advertising from their pages.

Even a brand that’s as tawdry as this one can be damaged by public opinion.

As the story broke yesterday, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in the Herald Sun’s editors office, or maybe I should have just hacked his phone.
