Bravo to Hugh Grant for not only being righteous, but articulate and smart in his crusade against the Murdoch tabloid News of the World and its egregious bugging practices.

After ex-News of the World contributor Paul McMullan boasted to Grant that he had been bugged, along with many others, Grant went by his pub in Dover and bugged him, got the tabloid writer to repeat many of the same things, and wrote it up for The New Statesman. In the newscast below, Grant more than holds his own with McMullan. More details here.
