Sunday Times stab at 'other papers' over hacking

The News International-owned
Sunday Times has a very good investigation into the phone hacking affair today in which it predicts at least nine journalists and three police officers could be jailed over the scandal and bribes to the police.

But it can't resist one stab at the rest of Fleet Street with this box-out:

"Other newspaper groups
In cut-throat Fleet Street fashion, other publishers, including the Mail and Mirror, plan to capitalise on the NoW’s troubles. Both Sunday titles hope to add hundreds of thousands of sales when the paper folds. However, they have found no space to reveal anything about their own use of private detectives or whether any journalists working for them ever commissioned phone hacking."

The Sunday Times is behind a paywall.
