Guardian Phone-Hacker David Leigh Retires

David Leigh, the Guardian’s ‘public interest’ phone-hacker in chief, is retiring to spend more time with his two phones. Guido never got that apology for Leigh’s less than polite untruths back in 2011. That awkward admission in full:

There is certainly a voyeuristic thrill in hearing another person’s private messages… unlike the News of the World, I was not paying a private detective to routinely help me with circulation-boosting snippets. That is my defence, when I try to explain newspaper methods to my current university journalism students, and some of whom are rather shocked.”

Send in the clowns…
