On Tuesday 19th April, Rupert Murdoch - the Chief Executive of News Corporation - gave evidence to a select committee of the British House of Commons. His appearance was in response to the phone hacking scandal that has engulfed his organisation. During his evidence he described the now defunct News of the World - once Britain's best selling newspaper - as "small" in the context of his global business. This is an admission that News Corp is too large. The failings of oversight are therefore due to its size and scope. Mr Murdoch has made the perfect case for the breaking up of his media empire.

I live off you
And you live off me
And the whole world
Lives off everybody
See we gotta be exploited
By somebody, by somebody, by somebody
