Former News Corp. Editor Brooks Doesn’t Know the Meaning of the Word “Inconceivable”

It is Inconceivable That She Doesn’t

Still of Robin Wright and Wallace Shawn in The Princess BrideVizzini: HE DIDN'T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Rebekeh Brooks was an executive at one of the British Newspapers at the heart of the unfolding scandal in England over the possibly illegal and certainly unethical practices of gathering news.  The illegal part is that there may have been wide spread hacking of voice mails of thousands of British officials and celebrities, along with bribery of police for access to confidential information.

Ms. Brooks rose to a prominent position, as reported by the Wall Street Journal (the good news part, not the pithy editorial part)

she "helped herself" to exclusive excerpts from a much-awaited biography of Prince Charles by dressing up as a News International office cleaner and hiding in the bathroom for two hours.


Mr. Morgan and Ms. Brooks arranged a hotel meeting with a secret lover of Princess Diana who was considering going public about his affair. Ms. Brooks sent a team to the hotel beforehand "to kit it out with secret tape devices in various flowerpots and cupboards,"

[PHONEHACK_A1]The reaction of Ms. Brooks to those who believe she was intimately involved in all of this.

Ms. Brooks said in a statement earlier this month that it was "inconceivable" that she knew about the alleged hacking.

No Ms. Brooks, given your past history and your executive position it is highly conceivable that  you knew about all this, in fact, what is inconceivable is that you didn’t know.  Think about it Ms. Brooks, The Dismal Political Economist is sure  you will come to that conclusion.
