News International - New Revelations

Now The Sun and the Sunday Times have had revelations/allegations about them in regards to:
  • information about Gordon Brown's son's medical details being dubiously obtained,
  • Royal phone numbers and other contact details being bought from dodgy Royal Protection Officers,
  • Etc, etc (it's all coming out so fast you can't keep up!)
I'm all for good investigative journalism, but I don't think that this, if true, in anyway qualifies for that term. Spying sounds closer.

If all of this turns out to be true, what does it say about the attitude and standards of management throughout News International? Where does it put News International in regards to the 'fit and proper person(s)' test for media ownership? Will the contagion from this scandal spread up to News Corp? Who will end up owning BSkyB?
