Kelvin "Gotcha" MacKenzie gets the tabloid press treatment

Kelvin MacKenzie enjoyed a long career as editor of Rupert Murdoch's Sun newspaper. During his tenure he memorably created a paper that cheered the sinking of a ship that killed hundreds, made xenophobic remarks a cornerstone of the tabloid, threw mud at any left-wing or centre-left politician or public figure, alongside hounding celebrities and anyone at the end of their chosen witch-hunt of the week.

Oh, and then there is Hillsborough, and the paper's disgraceful reporting of it - for which Kelvin was belligerently refusing to apologise until very recently... as this charming performance from Question Time demonstrates.

Given all this, it's hard to feel sorry for his own doorstepping incident, courtesy of Channel 4 News:
