Murdoch Hacking Scandal (cont)

More on the drip-drip-drip investigation into misbehavior by Murdoch employees in the U.K.

Can the U.S. investigation(s) be far behind?

It’s sad to see journalists waging a cover-up, but I suppose no one wants to go to jail.

The Murdoch hearing (cont.)

By Chris Daly 

James Murdoch, son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is set to appear again Thursday before a committee of the British Parliament to answers about the behavior of Murdoch employees in Britain.

 

The NYTimes has a preview today, along with a couple of sidebars.

 

But the most extensive coverage I have found is in the Guardian, which seems determined to try to topple the entire Murdoch empire.

He has already been asked so many questions on so many subjects that it seems unlikely he could avoid making mistakes and possibly worse. He may want to bring a bodyguard (like his dad’s wife, Wendi — shown below waging a counter-attack against a prankster who tried to “pie” Rupert during an earlier round of Parliamentary hearings.)
