Actor and comedian Steve Coogan appeared on Newsnight on Friday and said that he was "delighted" by the closure of the News of the World over the phone hacking scandal.
Coogan ripped into former-News of the World journalist Paul McMullen during a panel discussion that also included former-BBC Director General Greg Dyke.
In an earlier interview on the programme Coogan said that in his opinion the News of the World was: "A misogynistic, xenophobic, single parent-hating, asylum seeker-hating newspaper and it's gone to the wall and I'm delighted."
