“Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself.” – Macbeth

I keep reading news reports comparing the Rupert Murdoch phone hacking scandal to a Shakespearean tragedy.  Actually, some say it IS like a Shakespearean tragedy because it involves both familial and political interconnections, while others say it is NOT like a Shakespearean tragedy because Murdoch isn’t sympathetic at all, and some even say the scandal is like Shakespeare, Harry Potter, Charles Dickens, and J.R. Tolkien all at once!  Phew!  I’ve included some of the links so you can decide for yourself.
