Rich, powerful and pompous

One of the best comments so far to come out of witness testimony to the Leveson Inquiry, and it was from Charlotte Church:

I don't want to single out [Daily Mail editor] Paul Dacre at all. Just in terms of editors and people who are high up in tabloid papers – he [Dacre] said that there were many journalists who were exposing the misdeeds of the rich, the powerful and the pompous. 
It just struck me that Mr Dacre themselves and other editors are probably rich, definitely powerful; I'm not sure about pompous, but if they were subjected to the investigative journalism, maybe they would come out whiter than white, but if they weren't then their misdeeds are much more in the public interest as rich and powerful people than me as a TV presenter/singer or my friends.
