It’s a part of history, even if the end was brought upon themselves by their own hand. I bet there are issues up on eBay already for a huge amount of money.
Extremely cool keepsake.

Heh. I think the shenanigans that brought down NotW aren’t/weren’t limited to that one publication, and will probably continue to come to light.

It’s a valuable souvenir for a journalist with integrity and ACTUAL journalism training.

Yes, a very cool find indeed! Dreadful “journalism” of late, but you’ve got to keep this forever.

Definitely a collector’s item. Moi, I just gather all the puntastic headlines from the Post to show my (stunned) students upon return to class.

Sad story, especially for a journalist of integrity.
