McMullan said that “privacy is evil — it brings out the worst qualities in people” and believes that “phone hacking is a perfectly acceptable tool if all we are trying to do is get to the truth.”

His job “was such good fun,” he said. “How many jobs can actually have car chases? It was great!”

“It is what the public wants to read,” McMullan said. “Any means is fine by me.”
