Rupert Murdoch tape reveals Sun journalists' collective sense of betrayal | Media | The Guardian
""We were betrayed in every way possible by the company," said a third Sun journalist who, like the others, was wary of Murdoch's so-called empathy.

"All along," he said, "the priorities were to protect, No1 – News Corp, No2 – the family. Everything after that didn't count, and that includes the Sun.""

Why Rupert Murdoch tape was leaked - tearful journalists were angry | Media | guardian.co.uk
"As for Murdoch, he could be under no illusion about the underlying hostility from staff who felt they were paying the price for doing what was expected of them.

One told me: "We did as we were bid. No-one thought they were doing wrong. There was no training of any kind. No office lawyer raised any question." That genuine feeling of being hung out to dry is shared by almost every one of the arrested journalists."

Phone hacking: These resignation statements are meaningless | Gary Younge | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk
"Time and again people with huge salaries and immense power acknowledge they had responsibility, but are careful not to concede accountability, for fear that it will suggest culpability. Nobody claims they were just following orders because apparently there were no orders and no one to give them. It appears what we assumed were extremely hierarchical organisations such as News International and the Metropolitan police apparently operated like anarchist collectives."
