News International has said it is shutting the News of the World after this Sunday's
The fireworks have suddenly gone off on Newsnight.
Paul McMullen, who was Deputy Features editor at the News of the World from 1994 to 2001, got a few seconds into lamenting the potential impact of the hacking scandal on the role of the tabloid press in British democracy before Greg Dyke, former director general of BBC, and Steve Coogan launched a series of broadsides against him.
Coogan told him:
"I think you are a walking PR disaster for the tabloids because you don't come across in a sympathetic way."
"Your come across as a risible individual."
Greg Dyke said:
"You are absolutely nothing to do with a decent press and a free democracy."
McMullen attempted to fight back, asking Coogan how many "Murdoch movies" he had appeared in, claiming that the actor had a publicist who spent their time trying to get Coogan in the press.
"You spend your time trying to get in the press. How many Murdoch movies have you been in? You take five million quid a movie and then you bleet on."
Angered by McMullen's assertion that he was a journalist, Steve Coogan told him:
"You're not a journalist. You know you are not."
5 star television.
Thanks to the BBC.
