The secret first draft of Rupert Murdoch’s “we’re sorry” letter

Given remarks to the Wall Street Journal and ABC News this week, Scrapbook cannot resist speculating around the first draft of Rupert Murdoch’s apology letter. Each sentence in the note below is constructed using near-exact quotations from Murdoch:

With the gulf between Murdoch’s pronouncements this week and the contents of today’s advert, PR spinners Edelman must have had their (well remunerated) work cut out talking sense into the Dirty Digger.


  1. SG1974 says:

    “[Gordon Brown] has regular communications with Rupert Murdoch, as you would imagine, and he has the most enormous personal regard for Rupert Murdoch,” the prime minister’s official spokesman said.

    Finding it very difficult to comment on anything on rupert murdoch as it seems all comments pages in the papers have shut down on this subjectt.

How much did u ge paid? u make me sick. Lets see how ure living.

  7. [...] personal apology (see right). We remember it because it has the word sorry at the top. You can argue that he is only sorry that they got caught, but you can’t dismiss the power of the [...]
