“Things went wrong. . .”

by Chris Daly 

So said James Murdoch on Thursday in his second round of questioning before a Parliamentary committee investigating his management of part of the News Corp. empire. At the same time, Murdoch insists that he was not in the loop and did not know that phone hacking and other forms of journalistic skullduggery were rampant at the now-shuttered Murdoch-owned tabloid News of the World. (“My goodness, James, where do your reporters get all that material?”) Hmmm. . . .

So far, the younger Murdoch seems to be toughing it out.


Here are accounts by the NYTimes, the British Guardian, and (from way, way down the page), the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal

Key question: Can everyone in this story be telling the truth?
