Cleaned up your act, Mr Murdoch? - Gertcha!

Following the publication yesterday of the DCMS Select Committee's report on phone-hacking, Rupert Murdoch sent a reassuring email to the staff at News International.

It began:-

Dear Colleagues,
Today, the UK's parliamentary select committee on culture, media and sport released its full report on issues surrounding phone hacking at the News of the World.
(Link to full copy of the DCMS Select Committee report HERE )
The report affords us a unique opportunity to reflect upon the mistakes we have made and further the course we have already completed to correct them.
Below, is the Sun's front page today:-
Mistakes corrected? Really?

The front page above, mocking the new England football manager's speech impediment, is reminiscent of many such stories to appear in the Sun, one of which was reviewed in November 2009 by Roy Greenslade in the Guardian

Which other candidate for the post of England Manager would you have preferred, Mr Murdoch?
