News of the World launch 'no so smart' phone

While the revelations continue to break – and it seems that the News of the World was prepared to target any grief-stricken family’s privacy in the interest of headlines – Rupert Murdoch’s PR machine is using the Brooks 500 as a chance to ‘seize back the debate.’

News International has always stood for the rights of ordinary people to know what’s going on.”

Now, thanks to this state-of-the-art piece of communications technology, it takes that concept one step further – by allowing us the right to know what’s going on in the lives of ordinary people.”

“Never has a newspaper been on such intimate terms with the thoughts and feelings of its readership – and with the Brooks 500 in your hand, you too can have sensational access to absolutely anyone you want.”
