Last week I asked if anybody would look into the allegation made by Labor MP Tom Watson that Colin Myler, former News of the World editor and current editor-in-chief of the New York Daily News, had sent reporters at the NOTW on a dirt-digging expedition against British politicians in order to intimidate them from calling his boss at the time, News International chief Rebekah Brooks, before a committee investigating phone hacking allegations against Rupert Murdoch's newspapers.
Today The Guardian reports that Colin Myler is getting that scrutiny.
And as is usual with people who like to hold other people accountable, neither Mr. Myler nor his boss, Daily News publisher Mort Zuckerman, were available for comment about these allegations against Mr. Myler.
More on this later.
Suffice for now that it is good to see that Mr. Myler, a tireless champion of holding others accountable, may just be held accountable for his own crimes - including sending reporters into the garbage of public figures in order to extort them to stop investigating crimes committed by employees of his own company.
