Earlier this month, the UK's Guardian newspaper published allegations that the country's leading weekly tabloid the News of the World had hired a private investigator who accessed and deleted messages from a murdered teenager's voicemail.
The revelations - the latest twist in the ever-unfolding phone hacking scandal - caused a huge public outcry. They have led to the publication's parent company, News Corporation, and its owner Rupert Murdoch pulling the plug, at least for now, on the planned takeover of Britain's biggest broadcaster, BSkyB.
But many questions remain unanswered: How complicit were the police, politicians and prosecutors in this story? Did they attempt to cover up the scandal? Was the executive body of NewsCorp aware of what was happening? And how will it affect the Murdoch dynasty's role in British journalism?
Our News Divide this week looks at a tale of tabloid phone hacking and how it is rocking the very foundations of Britian's political and media establishments.
Does Britain's print media have the ability to self-regulate? Should it face more stringent regulations like the country's broadcast media? And has Rupert Murdoch been a force for good in British journalism? We substitute our NewsByte section this week to debate these questions with one of the few defenders of the UK's tabloid culture, renowned author and journalist Toby Young.
