So you want to be a tabloid journalist? A photo-story

I'm doing this in pictures so even News of the World writers will understand.

Here's the essential kit for every budding hack:

An orange wig. Whatever you do, looking like Rebekah Brooks may be all that keeps your from the dole queue.

Failing that, being mistaken for a Murdoch should see you right

A donation to the Policeman's Benevolent Fund. Much easier than chasing stories.

This is the other way to find things out

If anyone asks, these records never existed

With the aid of one of these, you may be able to find your conscience. Or even the Tabloid Code of Ethics.

But there are benefits to working at the News of the World. You'll eventually get your own company car. Like Mr. Goodman, Mr. Mulcaire and Mr. Coulson.

And here's Fry and Laurie's Murdoch version of It's a Wonderful Life.
