Hackers target Murdoch-owned paper
Question of the Day
James Murdoch said last week that he “did not have a complete picture” when he approved the payouts.
Rupert Murdoch is eager to stop the crisis from spreading to the United States, where many of his most lucrative assets _ including the Fox TV network, 20th Century Fox film studio, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post _ are based.
News Corp. on Monday appointed commercial lawyer Anthony Grabiner to run its Management and Standards Committee, which will deal with the phone hacking scandal. It said the committee will cooperate with all investigations on hacking and alleged police payments, and carry out its own inquiries.
Meanwhile, one of the first voices to blow the whistle on the phone hacking _ former News of the World journalist Sean Hoare _ was found dead Monday in Watford, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of London. Police said the death was being treated as unexplained but was not considered suspicious, according to Britain’s Press Association.
Hoare was quoted by The New York Times saying that phone hacking was widely used and even encouraged at the News of the World under Coulson.
