News Corp. Pays Out For Voicemail Hacking Victims 99

New submitter SandmanWAIX sends this excerpt from ABC.net.au: "Rupert Murdoch's media empire has made huge payouts to 37 phone-hacking victims, including actor Jude Law, singer Danii Minogue, and former British deputy prime minister John Prescott, their lawyers said. ... The company has set up a multi-million-pound compensation scheme for victims of phone hacking in a bid to avoid further costly civil lawsuits. ... It has also made a payout of 2 million pounds to the family of murdered British schoolgirl Milly Dowler, while Mr. Murdoch made a personal donation of 1 million pounds to charities chosen by her family.'"

    If you're referring to "equiry", yeah, he made a typo one out of the two times he used it. Piss off and die; typos suck, but it's not worth posting about.

    If you're referring to "enquiry", that's the correct British spelling. I'm a Yankee myself, so I don't spell it that way, but my mind is not so small it cannot hold two spellings for the same word. Piss off and die in a fire; assholes like you give the rest of us a bad name.

If God had not given us sticky tape, it would have been necessary to invent it.
