have all the latest from the world cop. `` World Cup.

:00:00.:00:21.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:22.:00:24.

With me is Paul Johnson, Deputy Editor of the Guardian

:00:25.:00:28.

and Neil Midgley, Media Commentator at Forbes.com.

:00:29.:00:31.

Phone hacking is the main story in the Financial Times, which shows

:00:32.:00:35.

Andy Coulson, the former News of the World editor, who's been found

:00:36.:00:38.

And the Telegraph shows Andy Coulson's predecessor,

:00:39.:00:41.

Rebekah Brooks, leaving the Old Bailey with her husband,

:00:42.:00:43.

Charlie. They were both acquitted of charges relating to phone hacking.

:00:44.:00:48.

Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks are both pictured

:00:49.:00:53.

The Guardian front page is also devoted to the phone hacking trial.

:00:54.:00:58.

And The Times devotes its front page to the not guilty

:00:59.:01:00.

The Sun does the same. Let's begin. We are going to start with the

:01:01.:01:23.

Guardian. It calls Andy Coulson eight criminal. This is an

:01:24.:01:31.

extraordinary story. There is a lot more to come. The front pages are

:01:32.:01:50.

really diverted. `` very divergent. We have had eight John boasts chart.

:01:51.:02:00.

Six have pleaded guilty. This is extraordinarily. 12 more trials are

:02:01.:02:08.

scheduled. One or two of the People's seem to be thinking that

:02:09.:02:18.

this is he. But it is not. `` the papers. We have a lot of stories

:02:19.:02:25.

Europe, saying that report murder is to be questioned. He is to be

:02:26.:02:34.

questioned under caution. If we think that is the end of it we are

:02:35.:02:41.

completely mistaken. The Guardian has been running with the story. The

:02:42.:02:53.

suggestion that Andy Coulson, the criminal who had David Tanner and's

:02:54.:03:00.

confidence, there were no questions of him being went to the hacking at

:03:01.:03:05.

the time. What was the problem back then? It is the way that the

:03:06.:03:16.

politicians have reacted to this today. The Guardian is showing

:03:17.:03:21.

admirable restraint. It is not being triumphant. It has been the story

:03:22.:03:31.

all along. Ed Miliband is saying that David Cameron's government is

:03:32.:03:40.

tainted. He employed Andy Coulson. That was in 2007. David Cameron was

:03:41.:03:47.

in opposition. Andy Coulson was a criminal. The police, it was the

:03:48.:04:03.

job, not David Cameron's. They is the question of what that David

:04:04.:04:10.

Cameron now. What should he have asked. But I do not think there is

:04:11.:04:19.

any suggestion that anybody has any evidence... Any more than he was a

:04:20.:04:27.

former editor of the News of the world. He was the one bad apple. It

:04:28.:04:36.

was the crime from News International. Most politicians were

:04:37.:04:45.

silent about this. The one bad apple defence ran for some time. We know

:04:46.:04:55.

that there were the few bad apples. But as the Times points out, Rebekah

:04:56.:05:04.

Brooks is not guilty. So was in the shop for cooking up this conspiracy?

:05:05.:05:14.

Senior management had no idea. It is very interesting the week that the

:05:15.:05:22.

newspapers are covering this. The Guardian is talking about Andy

:05:23.:05:25.

Coulson being guilty, but The Times is talking about Rebekah Brooks

:05:26.:05:32.

being not guilty. This is being presented as effectively for the

:05:33.:05:41.

Rupert Murdoch empire. You will remember when Rupert Murdoch came to

:05:42.:05:46.

London, he was asked about his priority. He says this one, pointing

:05:47.:05:55.

at Rebekah Brooks. She was a confidant of the Empire. She has

:05:56.:06:10.

been cleaned up. `` cleared. It was even said that there might be

:06:11.:06:16.

prosecutions in the United States. News International, is it going to

:06:17.:06:26.

happen? We are not sure about this. Your reporters today have been

:06:27.:06:32.

saying that the media corporate charters. Imagine if this was the

:06:33.:06:41.

bank. If criminality cannot be proven at a certain level, there is

:06:42.:06:49.

an attitude at the top for teaching responsibility. Look at what we have

:06:50.:06:58.

seen at the BBC. It is not just if you people being found guilty, what

:06:59.:07:07.

we have here... A court has found that Rebekah Brooks did not know.

:07:08.:07:14.

But in terms of corporate responsibility it may be different.

:07:15.:07:24.

The legal test that I read this was not the controlling mind of the

:07:25.:07:28.

corporation, don't they know what was going on? Report Murdoch, James

:07:29.:07:43.

Murdoch, what the new? `` Rupert Murdoch. The Daily Telegraph, is the

:07:44.:07:53.

suggestion that this figure is thought it was the mode of nonsense?

:07:54.:08:04.

That could be the case. One or two of the newspapers appear to be

:08:05.:08:10.

calling it into question. But if the police have phoned criminality than

:08:11.:08:16.

it needs to be posted. `` prostitute. `` pursued. Andy Coulson

:08:17.:08:39.

is in the story here. Of course, all this, it brings into question the

:08:40.:08:50.

regulation of the press and we also know that thousands of victims have

:08:51.:09:01.

your phone 's hacked. One extra that I spoke to says it calls into

:09:02.:09:07.

question the Leveson Inquiry. The Julie seems to have agreed that it

:09:08.:09:14.

was the number of bad apples. `` jury. The Leveson Inquiry, was it a

:09:15.:09:24.

waste of space? I would not go that far. Part of the motivation was to

:09:25.:09:30.

say that the press should have been regulated. The field to our nails

:09:31.:09:45.

this. `` They failed to unearth this. An eight`month trial? The

:09:46.:09:57.

biggest statutory regulator of all is the police. The field. `` They

:09:58.:10:16.

failed. But the PCC dead as well. They had to rely on them being a

:10:17.:10:19.

complaint by somebody mentioned the story. That is going to be a new

:10:20.:10:33.

system of press regulation. The victims of the hacking will say it

:10:34.:10:36.

is not legally change from the old system. They are not playing with

:10:37.:10:45.

the statutorily underpinning. But things have changed. The new body

:10:46.:10:55.

for publications that sign up, the Daily Telegraph already committed,

:10:56.:11:08.

though will be proactive Poles. `` powers. Has the Guardian signed up?

:11:09.:11:20.

No, but the only reason to sign up would be if it was convinced that it

:11:21.:11:26.

had credibility to the public. What about the people who think it should

:11:27.:11:33.

be independent of the editors? If it is not God credibility, it is seen

:11:34.:11:39.

as independent, I do not know what the future is. We will reserve

:11:40.:11:49.

position on that. We also have a self`regulatory system within our

:11:50.:11:59.

own organisation. We are going to move on. The hacking story is on the

:12:00.:12:08.

front of every newspaper. Inside page of the Financial Times. We have

:12:09.:12:16.

discussed this. Has this damaged David Cameron in a more long`term

:12:17.:12:33.

we? `` long term way? I doubt it. I think the public queue about this

:12:34.:12:37.

when the Milly Dowler revelation came out but I am not so sure that

:12:38.:12:43.

they do any more. They have probably formed the opinion of David Cameron

:12:44.:12:46.

and his relationship with Andy Coulson before this verdict. When

:12:47.:12:53.

you have got the general election in less than a year, the question about

:12:54.:13:00.

somebody's judgement in hiding a spin doctor seven`year cycle is

:13:01.:13:05.

probably not going to be top of the list. Ed Miliband said, they went

:13:06.:13:17.

after News International. Is this a good day for him? I do not know.

:13:18.:13:30.

Though will be more questions about this, for the Cabinet Secretary as

:13:31.:13:38.

well as David Cameron. The vetting procedure just seemed to be a Nord.

:13:39.:13:49.

`` nod. In the future I think they will be very careful about what they

:13:50.:13:56.

want from the spin doctors. More thought on that in the future. It

:13:57.:14:08.

has been good having you here. All of the fallout from the hacking

:14:09.:14:09.

trial. It is time for the sport. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm

:14:10.:14:30.

Thomas Niblock. Good evening. England are on the way home from the

:14:31.:14:34.

World Cup after a scoreless draw with Costa Rica, but the big talking

:14:35.:14:37.

point from Brazil surrounds Liverpool?s Luis Suarez. Italy

:14:38.:14:41.

defender Georgio Chiellini has claimed he was bitten by Suarez as

:14:42.:14:46.

both Uruguay and Italy played for a
