      Such a shame that such a big and long lasting company should all of a sudden be forced to shut down because of a few people that took things too far to get stories, it should be those who are punished not the company.

      To be fair News of the World is not a company it's part of Rupert Murdochs News International Group.
      I think he has decided to close it in an attempt to minimise damage.
