Contradicting testimony found in UK hacking case

08-18-2011 09:11 BJT Special Report:Phone-Hacking Scandal Hits News Corp. |

Rupert Murdoch, is back in the hot seat, of Britain's phone hacking scandal, after new documents appeared to contradict the testimony of his son and his former right-hand man. As Murdoch executives, fired in the wake of "News of the World's" closure, begin pointing fingers, those who've watched the Murdoch business, say, his son James and confidante Les Hinton, have a few questions to answer.

Correspondence, published on Tuesday, by U.K. lawmakers investigating the scandal, show that Hinton, Executive Chairman at "News of the World", was warned more than four years ago, that phone hacking was endemic at the now-defunct tabloid. He was ALSO told, that senior journalists there, approved of the practice, and that the paper's then-editor, Andy Coulson, knew about it.
