MSNBC and the NYT have nothing to do with anything. If its so "horrific" why isn't it illegal? Since all the tabs have been doing it for years, how is it that its just now a "scandal". Piers Morgan used "reporters" who did it when he was editor of the Sun and the Daily Mail and The News of the World. Its in his book. Why isn't he being battered and dragged thru the streets of London?

Clive Goodman plead guilty to conspiracy to intercept communications without lawful authority, in the case of three aides to the royal family.
Glenn Mulcaire plead guilty to the unlawful interception of communications and conspiracy to intercept communications without lawful authority.
So you're contending that they conspired to obey the law?
