Hugh Grant, An Unlikely Hero

With the scandals of Murdoch's NIG, and News of the World's fan thoroughly splattered, I have gained new respect for actor Hugh Grant. Grant wired himself and caught the confession of former deputy editor Paul McMullan who said of the phone hacking, "..it was quite routine." That may be the truest thing McMullan has ever said.

Grant has been right out there swinging this past week, and I say hats off to him. Yesterday's Guardian has a good piece:

And a whole channel on YouTube is devoted to following all of this, with much of Grant's appearance on BBC 1's Question Time:

Go Hugh, baby. I'm a fan of who you are. Well done.

Well, there's a reason to give Hugh some respect. Always loved Coogan's comedy. Though I digress...
