Tabloid's actions doomed Brooks

Sir --Under the headline 'Rupert as flawed father of the World', (Sunday Independent, July 17, 2011), Brendan O'Connor claims 'poor' Rebekah Brooks is a victim of prejudice, that snooty Guardian-reading types don't like her because she's a go-getting gal who knew what buttons to push on her rise to the top of News International. Worse still, she's a redhead who once worked as a secretary.

Nonsense.

Brooks is despicable because the reporters she employed hacked the voicemail of a missing 13-year-old girl, impeding the investigation into the girl's disappearance.
