How does American tabloid journalism compare to other countries?

After 168 years in circulation, The News Of The World released its final edition yesterday amid allegations that the newspaper hacked into the voice mailboxes of over 4,000 people, including royal aides, sports stars, celebrities and politicians.

Most notably, the paper hacked into the phone of 13-year-old Milly Dowler after she had been abducted, deleting phone messages and leading friends and family members to believe that Milly was still alive, when in fact she had been murdered.

In the wake of the hacking scandal, Lloyd Grove, editor for the Daily Beast, joins American Morning today to take a look at tabloid journalism in the U.S. and the methods American journalists employ to gather information.
