'Hacked off' celebs lead war on British tabloids (Celebrities news headlines)

'Hacked off' celebs lead war on British tabloids 
Ninemsn reported

It took the hacking of a murdered girl's phone to make the News of the World scandal explode, but British celebrities have wasted no time in using the row to press their own agenda against the tabloids. Actor Hugh Grant has led the charge.

Grant, who starred in the 1994 film "Four Weddings and a Funeral", has toured the TV studios in the past fortnight telling how he secretly recorded a conversation with Paul McMullan, a former News of the World journalist.

During the encounter — which Grant wrote about in the New Statesman magazine in April with relatively little fanfare — he said McMullan admitted "industrial scale phone-hacking" at the paper.
