News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch is unfit to lead his media empire, an influential group of British lawmakers said Tuesday.
James Murdoch defended his record at the head of his father's scandal-tarred British newspaper unit before a U.K. inquiry Tuesday, saying that subordinates prevented him from making a clean sweep at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid.
A former top lawyer for Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers insisted Wednesday that he told the mogul's son there was evidence of widespread phone hacking more than three years before a scandal over the practice erupted.
He didn't see. He wasn't told. He didn't know.
James Murdoch insisted Thursday that he had been kept in the dark about the culture of criminality at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid, telling a committee of often-skeptical British lawmakers that he had been blindsided by his subordinates.
James Murdoch is being recalled for another grilling before Britain's Parliament after former News Corp. executives raised serious doubts about his account of his role in the country's tabloid phone hacking scandal.

"What was relayed to Mr. Murdoch was that this document clearly was direct and hard evidence of that being the case," he said.
Crone told Britain's inquiry into media standards he was "pretty sure" that during a meeting in June 2008, he showed Murdoch a printed copy of an email that included transcripts of illegally intercepted voice mail messages.
