Ex-NotW execs challenge James Murdoch’s testimony

News International chairman faces calls for police investigation

by

Former News of the World executives broke ranks on Thursday to challenge James Murdoch’s denials that he knew phone hacking was common at the tabloid. The son of Rupert Murdoch and chairman of British newspaper division News International denied he knew of an email that suggested the problem went beyond one reporter before authorizing the payment of an out-of-court settlement to a hacking victim. A British Labour MP has claimed Murdoch mislead parliament and has called for a police probe, while Prime Minister David Cameron said Murdoch had “questions to answer.”
