    And the clock strikes 11:59 and 59 seconds..


    Former NoW royal editor Clive Goodman alleges that phone hacking was "widely discussed" at editorial meetings.


    Goodman alleges that phone hacking was "widely discussed" at editorial meetings until Coulson banned "explicit reference" to it; that Coulson offered to let him keep his job if he did not "implicate" the paper; and that his own hacking was carried out with the "full knowledge and support" of other senior NoW journalists (whose names have been redacted at the request of Scotland Yard). It's yet more evidence of a gigantic cover up.

    Here is the letter from Goodman:

    I'm no Murdoch fan, but was Murdoch at editorial meetings?

    Does it matter?
    I get the "Innocent until proven guilty" mantra that the priviledged like to use, but seriously.
    Wouldn't he be privy to what goes on in those meetings? Does anyone believe that he didn't know about something as volatile and illegal as the hacking?
    C'mon!

    that's what I'm getting at -- would he even be aware of an editorial meeting at one newspaper?
