Rupert Murdoch: A life spent in the Private Eye

Private Eye dubbed him the "Dirty Digger," now it's having a field day as Rupert Murdoch and News International are engulfed in the phone hacking scandal. The latest Eye is like a memorial issue to the relationship between the magazine and the media mogul, featuring some of its best covers.

The revelation that Milly Dowler's phone was hacked and the many legs the story subsequently sprouted happened a couple of days after Private Eye came out making that edition instantly irrelevant.
It must have been hellishly frustrating for Eye staff having to wait two weeks before they could present their unique take on Hackgate(sorry!)
Haven't see it the latest edition yet but as along time Eye fan I'm anticipating something special.
