Off topic, but in what way is that prank phone call treason? Sounds like just the sort of thing the Sun would have done pre Leveson.

Lets hope the media behave themselves since he has not been convicted. Especially post-Leveson.

The media don't know what good behavior is, at least the grubbier end of Fleet Street don't.

I think Cameron's spineless refusal to act is a bit of a green light to getting back to business as usual.
Dead right. We always hear about the need to "send a signal" to people who take MDMA etc. And apparently the statutory press body would have "sent a signal" to Vladimir Putin that he could execute Pussy Riot.

On other occasions we hear less about what signals are being sent.

I've not read the article, but bearing in mind the number of mentions Thatcher's friendship with Jimmy Savile has racked up from various media sources, perhaps something along those lines was always going to be brought up when the opportunity arose.
